Never Fail Pancake Batter

So I took a few days off and enjoyed a long birthday weekend. Nothing too exciting took place, but it was nice to not have to be anywhere, do anything, and just hang out. Finding a weekend in the summer without obligations is hard to come by!

Here is a beautiful bouquet of flowers from my in-laws. I never have fresh flowers around the house, so it is nice!


Yesterday morning, when the boys headed off to go fishing, I made breakfast for us at home. Expecting them to be home around noon, I figured they'd eat a late breakfast when they got back...but boys being boys, they didn't get home till 4pm. No food left for them!

Fresh cantaloupe and pancakes were on the menu:










This batter recipe I stole from my father in-law, whom I'm pretty sure stole from Betty Crocker, but it is the only one I use and I will probably never stray...wouldn't want to cheat on Betty.

I've also adapted this recipe for other pancake batters - Pumpkin Pie Pancakes and Greek Yogurt Pancakes, both equally as good!

Never Fail Pancake Batter
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 1/2 t. baking soda
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
3 T. butter, melted
1 T. sugar
1/2 t. salt

Mix all ingredients together, adding the flour last. Stir until just combined, batter will be lumpy. Cook on griddle, flipping when golden brown.


Yum-Yum-Yum!
