I love baking with buttermilk but often find it sits for a while in the fridge after I've made whatever it is I was baking. Luckily it keeps for a long time.
I happened to have some buttermilk screaming out to be used, and I happened to have been flipping through the CIA Home Baking cookbook last night when I came across a recipe for buttermilk pancakes. Done! Breakfast for Sunday morning.
The recipe was incredibly easy and when together in just about 5 minutes. The pancakes themselves were fabulous. Feather light, lusciously tender and outright delicious.
If you own this cookbook and have not tried these pancakes, do it. They're worth and it miles better than any mix could possibly think about being.
