Vanilla Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes

My kids love pancakes. When I make pancakes I try to make a double batch so that I can put the extras in a ziplock bag and save it for the next day. All I have to do the next morning warm it in the microwave. My favorite pancake recipe by far. With this recipe you also have the option to opt out the vanilla and cinnamon and it will be a great buttermilk pancake recipe.

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

3 Tbsp white sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 cups buttermilk

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 egg

1/4 cup melted butter
Directions:

Melt the butter and set aside to cool down slightly.

To a mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Use a whisk to combine all dry ingredients well.

In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, vanilla, ground cinnamon and egg. Whisk to combine. Add melted butter and whisk again.

Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, whisking and stirring to mix it all together. Once it’s combined, stop mixing. If you over-mix, your pancakes won’t be light and fluffy.

Set pancake batter aside and heat up a large skillet or griddle over MED-LOW heat. Add a bit of butter to the preheated griddle and spread it out.

Use a 1/4 or 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop the pancake batter onto the griddle or skillet. Slowly pour it onto the surface, circling outwards to make a nice circle.

Let the pancake cook about 2-3 minutes. You’ll notice bubbles popping up on the surface of the pancake, if the edges look set, carefully flip the pancake over. Cook another 2 minutes on the other side.

Remove to a plate and cover with a kitchen towel. Alternatively, you can place the pancakes on a baking sheet and keep it in a low heat oven (175-200 degrees), until you’re ready to serve.
