We woke up to a skiff of snow covering the ground….again this morning. So I decided it was a good day to play in the kitchen!
I found this recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes in “The America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook” and gave it a try. We don’t care for Bisquick or any boxed pancake mixes and I’m so glad I found this. They taste amazing!! I can’t wait to fix them for the grandsons when they come to visit again.
I started out with this image – 50mm, f/2.0, 1/100 sec., ISO 200 – basic edit in Lightroom – no presets or texture applied. I wanted the little bowl of strawberries to blur as well as the background, focus being on the vintage cast iron griddle and stack of pancakes.
I moved in closer and then cropped to a square in Lightroom as well – 50mm, f/9.0, 1/3 second, ISO 200 – bringing more into focus.
Moving in even closer and with a square crop in Lightroom – 50mm, f/9.0, 1/4 sec., ISO 200
Now I need to decide which one I’m going to use for the cookbook I’m working on for all my children. I like to include images of the recipe.
This recipe really is delicious! Try it out and let me know what you think!
Hugs and Have a Wonderful Day!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1 to 2 teaspoons cooking oil
- In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, melted butter, and egg.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and slowly add the buttermilk mixture. Gently whisk until JUST incorporated, with a few lumps remaining. Do not overmix the batter.
- Heat a nonstick skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Brush the pan with oil, just enough to ensure that the pancakes don’t stick to the bottom. Using 1/4 cup of batter per pancake, add the batter to the skillet and cook until large bubbles appear, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the pancake and cook until browned on the second side. Repeat with remaining batter, brushing the pan with oil as needed.
