This recipe dates back to my college years. The women were girly girls and I had had enough with hairspray queen jibber jabber. Surprisingly, I did more cooking with the guys. One year I decided to hang out with geeks at the engineering school (didn’t date any though!). One of them, actually a brilliant pre-med student, introduced his mom’s buttermilk pancake recipe to me:
Mix dry ingredients with a whisk:
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tablespn sugar
Then add and stir with whisk till smooth, but don’t overbeat:
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespns veg oil
Sometimes I’ll throw in about 1/2 cup of finely-chopped walnuts and mix that in with a spoon (not whisk). Flax meal also give it a yummy nutty taste!
Highly recommend agave nectar mixed in with your maple syrup. ENJOY!
