No more searching for your favorite pancake recipe. These buttery pancakes will win the taste-test every time, thanks to their fluffy texture and incredible flavor. Buttermilk adds just a little bit of tang, and will make your family wonder, “What IS it that makes this taste so good?” For perfectly golden brown pancakes, make sure your griddle is hot. A non-stick skillet will work great, too. In fact, you can pour the batter straight into the skillet, as they will brown more evenly without oil or butter. Warm syrup and crispy bacon are the perfect accompaniments—as always.
