I needed to make plenty of food for the week. I don't know how I feel about the nocturnal schedule I'm currently on. I get a lot of work done during the night. I go into the office from about midnight until about seven am when it's entirely empty. There is nothing online to distract me. And I work, work, work. The problems with the schedule are that it's really difficult to cook because Josh is either sleeping (and I don't want to stomp around in the kitchen right above the bed) or I just woke up. It's also difficult to run errands to places like the bank because they are only open during my sleeping time!
So I've been trying to cook a lot all at once so it can just be heated up. And I thought Buttermilk pancakes (p. 644) fit the bill. Buttermilk pancakes are essentially the same as pancakes but with buttermilk instead of regular milk, a little more baking soda, and a little less baking powder.
Dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in the other:
Mix them together, being careful not to overbeat:
And cook in a medium pan until bubble start to rise to the top, flip, and finish cooking.
Delicious! I really liked this recipe. The buttermilk lent a nice slightly sour flavor to the pancakes and they were light and fluffy. I made a big pile of them and then heated them up over the week. I like to make little pancakes instead of big ones.
I will absolutely make this recipe again--I like pancakes and they are so easy and fast.
