Favorite Pancakes – and Thanks, Bonney!

This week, I made my new (which is now my favorite) pancake recipe as a little breakfast treat for Av, who has been super-busy at his office this week. Usually he just heats up a biscuit or two for breakfast, but even though I am not usually a breakfast eater (and don’t even like the smell of food in the morning) I wanted to treat him…*plus* sweet Bonney from New Hampshire sent me some lovely NH maple syrup, and I’ve been wanting to use it, so this timed out perfectly!

Ingredients (this makes about eight pancakes):
1 cup whole buttermilk
1 c. flour (I like White Lily)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 medium egg
3 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled
a little olive oil for frying

First, I mixed up all the dry ingredients:

In a measuring cup, I added the buttermilk, added the melted/cooled butter, then the egg – and whisked well:

The wet ingredients were whisked into the dry – but not overmixed:

I added a bit of olive oil to my non-stick skillet on medium-high heat, and poured out three pancakes. They’re ready to flip when they make large bubbles on top:

This is New Hampshire pure maple syrup, in a super-cute container. This was the *best maple syrup* Av or I have ever, ever had!! A zillion thanks to Bonney for sending me goodies from her home state!

The pancakes turned out really great, and the syrup just made them perfect. Yum!
