I Love Fluff....

Yes ma'am...I do love a FLUFFY PANCAKE
and, I do believe THESE are about the most fluffy and delicious and LIGHT pancakes
I have ever tasted. 
 THEY, as you can see, are a mile high,
not your wimpy, limp pancake you sometimes see...or make...
as in MY case...MAKE.
 Now...being THICKER, one might tend to think they are HEAVY...TUFF...
NOPE....NOT SO.
They are so light and tender, they nearly float off your plate !
I hope you will try these...
maybe next Saturday morning ...??
They are a breeze to whip up...
and wouldn't they just knock your sox off if you had a big slab of SMOKED  HAM to serve with them!
O HONEY
MOST of the time, I like jam with my pancakes..
Mr. Sweet's eyes roll so far back in his head every time he sees me get the jam out of the fridge,
that I wonder if he will EVER see again.
I think that he thinks there's a law somewhere that says you MUST use a good
maple syrup or something kin to maple syrup on PANCAKES.....!
REALLY, YA'LL...
Pick up some REAL buttermilk next time you are at the grocery store.
I make my own a lot...you know, a cup of milk and a cap full of Vinegar or lemon juice...
but, as great as these taste...I just KNOW it's the thick, creamy REAL THING
that is a big part of why they are so good. (that and the soda added, maybe)

I followed her recipe to a tee..
when she says the batter is THICK but it's supposed to be..
and she said "you can add a little more buttermilk if you want them thinner", I didn't add 
one drop more.
The ONLY thing I DID add was a cap full of Vanilla.
But then....I add Vanilla to just about EVERYthing.
You are gonna LUV 'em....
I just know it.
p.s.  Mr. Sweet asked for them again this morning...
Joining:
SEASONAL SUNDAY
 SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY (there's a tiny fork shadow..I know I'm really milking it, here...
MEATLESS MONDAY
A RETURN TO LOVELINESS
ON THE MENU Monday

Hi BJ. We call them pikelets over here in Aus and they're a staple in every Australian's childhood. We all grew up on having pikelets for morning and afternoon tea.

It's 9 o'clock at night but what I wouldn't give for a plate of these pancakes! Just divine. Did something happen with google images that you posted that warning? I do use them occasionally. Maybe I should stop?

NanaDiana said...

I copied this recipe and will use it. I like the big fluffy ones too and I usually find the ones that are thick like that are as heavy as lead. I will try these-great pictures. xo Diana

I haven't had a big plate of pancakes in years...oh my they look delicious. Your comment about Google images is well made, BJ. Many bloggers think they can help themselves to any images they want. Not so.

Kris said...

Those pannycakes (we call them that...since my grown kids were little, and it stuck) look fabulous. I couldn't comment on your more current post, regarding using google images? Did something happen to you?
Hope your email is fixed soon. Have a good day!

I have seen You in the setting Sun
with Your long auburn tresses
blowing in the cool air that surrounds You.
Your crown of golden leaves is jeweled
with amber, amethyst, and rubies.
Your long, flowing purple robe stretches across the horizon.
In Your hands You hold the ripened fruits.
At Your feet the squirrels gather acorns."
