Family Food: Buttermilk Pancakes

Fluffy and tasty even on their own, these are our house pancakes. I’d even pack a whisk into my suitcase just to be able to serve these buttermilk pancakes when we’re travelling.  They’re that easy to make. And they’re that good!

I was initially drawn to this recipe because there’s no sugar in the pancakes (I was obsessed with omitting sugar from my toddler’s diet; if your family prefers something sweeter, check out Dawn’s fab recipes for peanut butter pancakes and cottage cheese pancakes). However, two additional details make this recipe extra special. Buttermilk gives the pancakes an appealing tang and complexity of flavour. And folding in the egg whites gives them a natural fluffy airiness (which is further sustained by baking powder). I always have a stash of these buttermilk pancakes in the freezer because T frequently gets up in the morning asking to have them for breakfast. In a pinch, he gets them with a drizzle of maple syrup. Otherwise, they’re topped with homemade blueberry sauce or bananas sautéed in butter.
