I am going to make a bold statement.
It isn't a pancake unless it has Buttermilk in it.
Well, that isn't necessarily true...I have had good pancakes without buttermilk... but they are not as fluffy and as tasty as pancakes that do have this wonderful ingredient in it.
These are my FAVOURITE pancakes. I added blueberries and it was perfect. The next time I made them, I substituted 1 cup of flour for 1 cup of whole wheat flour and though they were still good, but they were not great as the original recipe.
For all my wonderful friends who make boxed pancakes (GASP!) STOP RIGHT NOW AND MAKE THESE!!! You will never go back to boxed after these.
