Saturday Afternoon Pancakes

Life is busy.

It's true. When I think about just this year alone so far, I think of my last semester as an undergraduate, moving into a new apartment, in and out of town almost every weekend, and now a killer internship. Life is awesome. Life is also busy.

I love weekends... and this weekend is first one in a long time where we've been in town, at home, with nothing to do. It feels great! There's nothing like catching up on sleep after a long week. That's my idea of a party.

All of the usual suspects are here: flour, sugar, butter, and milk. This isn't Bisquick y'all. This is pure homemade heaven.

I use a 1/3 measuring cup when I cook pancakes, because they all come out the same size.

These pancakes will wipe away all the stress from the past five days. Try them!

Saturday Morning Pancakes

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Butter or cooking spray for cooking

In a bowl beat eggs. Add buttermilk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Then, in a separate bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and stir to combine. Next, pour wet mixture into dry mixture all at once, and whisk until combined.

Heat griddle or pan over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of butter to the pan or spray with cooking spray. Next, with a 1/3 cup measuring cup, pour batter onto the griddle. Cook on the first side until bubbles form. Flip the pancake over and cook until golden brown.

*I always preheat my oven to 270 degrees, and let the pancakes rest in a skillet until all pancakes are ready to serve. This way, the pancakes come out nice and hot.
