59 Diner Pancakes

This recipe appeared years ago in either Parade or USA Today in the Sunday paper. For many years I made it up into little mixes and gave it as gifts to teachers, aides, bus drivers and David's various therapists. Because they are so light I called them Angel Pancakes. A mix will fit into a sandwich bag and I always gave two as each uses 2 cups of buttermilk and I've never seen it sold in less than a quart so I thought it wouldn't be right to have someone buy the buttermilk only to be stuck with half of it! Anyway, I'd put the 2 mixes in a lunch size brown paper bag. I made decorative labels with instructions that fit the outside of the bag and glued them on with a glue stick. You can put the full recipe inside if you want. Fold the top over, punch 2 holes in the top and thread curling ribbon through tie and curl. You can use the label below if you like. I'm sure you'll enjoy these light pancakes.

The Dry Mix:
1 3/4 cups flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar

The Liquid ingredients:
2 eggs
2 cups Buttermilk (yes, you have to use Buttermilk)
6 Tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions: (One bag is one mix.)
Combine liquid ingredients and then mix in the already combined dry ingredients. Mix until smooth. Let batter rest for 10 minutes. Cook on a preheated, lightly greased griddle. Use all the batter. Leftover pancakes microwave well. Sprinkle with a little water beforehand. Makes about 10 pancakes.

These truly are the best pancakes and so easy to make! I add a few drops of chocolate chips when baking for yummy chocolate chip pancakes to make the kids feel extra special on those cloudy days!

And, leftovers can be brought to room temp, encased in another sandwich bag and frozen for later. Simply put frozen pancake(s)in microwave for a few seconds, and if desired, toast for half a minute or so. As good was fresh.
