Yield: Yields twelve 4-inch pancakes.
If buttermilk isn’t available, use 2 to 2-1/4 cups whole milk instead. To play with the texture, try replacing 1/2 cup of the all-purpose with whole-wheat flour, buckwheat flour, or even medium-grind cornmeal.

If you don't have buttermilk and are using sweet (i.e., "regular") milk, don't add the baking soda. OR, you can use some milk-thinned yogurt or sour cream in place of the buttermilk and keep the soda (this is actually a better idea). Anyway, the texture of the batter and finished pancake will be DRAMATICALLY different if you use plain ol' milk.
5 stars all the way!! I didnt use buttermilk because i don't own buttermilk, so, i used 1% milk and they turned out GREAT!!! I used butter on the griddle and it made them taste even BETTER!! I would recommend this to a friend! :)
delicious and easy to make. Half the recipe for two of us worked perfectly. I used the hint about letting the batter sit for five minutes before cooking.
Did I do something wrong? These pancakes were very wet and thin. I used milk instead of buttermilk. I too will stick to my other pancake recipe!
