Sitting down with your family for a nice, leisurely meal has got to be one of the greatest joys of life. A leisurely Sunday (or any day) breakfast is one of my favorite things. And with all the hustle and bustle that's bound to come with the holiday season (which I do love), slowing things down with a warm plate of pancakes and a cup of coffee in the morning is a very good thing.
A few months ago, I discovered the art and reward of making pancakes from scratch. I've been making these buttermilk pancakes rather frequently, and I just love them. But as our six-year old sits at the table and chows them down, he keeps telling me how he likes them "just a little bit." Apparently, he finds some fault in that tang that comes from the buttermilk. So I tracked down another recipe for "classic" pancakes that's still fluffy and delicious but without that tangy buttermilk flavor. Again, I have to say that those super soft buttermilk pancakes are so good. These are very similar and seriously fluffy and yummy but the buttermilk version remains my favorite.
