Mom’s Buttermilk Pancakes
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1 1/8 cups buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat and lightly grease a large skillet or electric griddle.
- Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Add the egg, buttermilk, and butter; stir together lightly, but keep it lumpy. The batter should look thick, spongy, and puffy.
- Drop 1/3 cup of the batter onto the cooking surface, spreading lightly with the bottom of the cup. Cook until lightly-browned on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

Making the pancakes was alright. I enjoyed preparing the pancake mix and I liked stirring it. It was much harder than I had expected. Mixing the ingredients was a piece of cake but putting the mix on the griddle and flipping it was another story. I didn’t wait long enough to flip the pancakes to the other said, and when I did; I found out that the one side was not done, at all. Because it was still soggy, the pancake broke into pieces. So that’s why it looked very unattractive. The making of the syrup was terrible. First time we made the syrup, it turned out white. It didn’t look quite right so we looked at everybody else’s syrup and they were all brown. So we knew something was wrong. It turned out that we used the wrong recipe. So we had to restart. But in the end, the pancake and the syrup was still edible. So it was all good. Maybe next time, I will not be in charge of flipping the pancakes because it looked horrible.
