Homemade Pancakes

2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup butter
1 large egg (beaten)
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 tbsp. frying oil or cooking spray

Preheat the frying pan over medium heat with the oil. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Add in the butter, egg (beaten) and buttermilk; mix until smooth. Ladle the pancake mixture into your frying pan and fry on one side until small bubbles begin to form on the surface, flip the pancake and fry until golden brown on both sides.

*Johnna’s tip: After watching some TV entertainment last night (*probably one of the funniest pancake contests we’ve seen in awhile…), we were inspired to sort out the ingredients of homemade pancakes. It almost seems archaic in these times to make a pancake from scratch but these make the best breakfast! Pair with some fresh strawberries or blueberries as your topping and warm maple syrup;-) Indulge!
