At the beginning of the week I tried out a new muffin recipe that I found which called for buttermilk.
I bought my lait ribot (you can find it next to the fresh milk in your French grocery store). The muffins turned out pretty good but it made 12 with only 1.5 cups of buttermilk. That left me with the better part of a litre left over.
So the last couple days I've been churning (hehe) out buttermilk pancakes since I don't have a waffle iron. It's the first time I've made them adapting my basic pancake recipe to include buttermilk instead of normal milk.
All the hype surrounding buttermilk pancakes as being the best, yup - ALL true! They were SOOOO tasty! The batter was really light and they cooked up nice and thick but not rubbery or dense. Delish! I did eat a couple along the way - quality control is a must around here. The rest I froze! Yup, I read that pancakes freeze really well so once they were cool I stuck them on a baking sheet and froze them. This morning I transfered them to a plastic bag and tested one in the toaster - YUM! Just as good!
This way we can have some buttermilk pancakes whenever the urge hits instead of going out to buy buttermilk... not something I find very often on my shopping list...
Oh and what's up with no comments on my April Fool's???? You guys too embarrassed that you bought it hook, line and sinker??
