Good Eats? You Betcha!
Prodded by a post of Elisson's, I grabbed a copy of food celebrity Alton Brown's recipe for "instant" pancake mix. I am quite fond of the flapjack and have yet to find a commercial pancake mix that really does the job. This afternoon I had a visit from my favorite starving artist and flapped some jacks for the both of us off of the recipe linked above. Oh hells yeah. This is the bomb diggity of BlogDog-made pancakies.
The set up is that you can mix up all the dry ingredients and use eggs, butter and buttermilk to mix up the batter when the time to nosh rolls around. I will contend that there is no more noble use for buttermilk than in the production of these pancakes. They are that good. I strongly suggest that you give this one a try. It's not at all onerous to make and you'll get a superior breakfasting experience. Thank me later. And drop by Elisson's to thank him.

These sound like the *best* *pancakes* * ever*. When I make up a batch, I'll comment in detail. Good find...

These will also stick to your ribs - same buttermilk recipe but uses oatmeal:

Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Oatmeal Pancakes

The night before:
2 C. old-fashioned oatmeal
2 C. buttermilk

Mix together and let stand overnight in the refrigerator. In the morning add:

2 beaten eggs
1/2 C. flour (I used whole wheat)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 T. butter, melted

Cook on greased fry pan or griddle. You can put fruit on the uncooked side of the pancake if desired. Serves 6-8 people.

Buttermilk ... Can't get past drinking it by mistake as a kid and my dad laughing at my shock and distress. He used to fill a glass with it, crumple cornbread into it, and eat it with a long-handled spoon. Not nearly as bad as watching him eat pickled pigs' feet, though. We all scar our children in different ways, I guess.

Those are good pancakes, the only change that I have made is to use powdered buttermilk, usually found by the evaporated milk in the supermarket. I mix that in with the dry ingredients and just add little extra water to get the viscosity right.

So, then, what do you use your sour milk for? I always have to bake when the milk goes sour.

My milk consumption is so carefully planned that I don't ever end up with sour milk.
Not that there's anything wrong with that!
