I've made these enough to confidently say I've got the recipe down. It's pretty simple, but makes for some reliably delicious hot cakes.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/8 tsp salt
Mix all these dry ingredients together with a fork in a big mixing bowl. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients.
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup milk
2 1/2 tablespoons melted butter
Heat the griddle. Just before you're ready to start cooking the pancakes, dump the mixed wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir a few times with a wooden spoon. Don't stir too much. The batter will look rather lumpy. That's a good sign.
Cook until golden brown on each side. Serve with maple syrup, apple butter, bacon, orange juice and eggs.
