One of my very favorite and super quick Sunday morning breakfast is Buttermilk pancakes.

1 cup + 2 tablespoons cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 large egg, beaten
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt.Set aside.
  • Whisk together the beaten egg and melted butter.
  • Pour egg mixture into flour mixture and whisk until smooth.
  • Let batter sit 5 minutes while heating the grill.
  • Use 1/4 cup measure to pour each pancake onto hot griddle (makes about 10 pancakes).
  • DO NOT FLIP pancakes until air bubbles form and pancakes have started to rise.
  • Serve immediately.

Today I made Vanilla buttermilk pancakes, but this recipe is readily adaptable for the different seasons and holidays by adding one of the following:

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
