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??

C & I freeze pancakes all the time - it's so nice to be able to just pop one in the toaster on days when you're too lazy to make breakfast. :)

And I don't ever buy lait ribot anymore for that reason - it's hard to use up the whole bottle! So now I just add 1 Tbsp of vinegar (or lemon juice) to a cup of milk and let it sit for 5 min, et voila - homemade lait ribot!

Hummm I've heard of that trick and might try it next time. It's too bad they don't sell 1/2 litre bottles - that would be perfect!

I have some muffin recipes that call for buttermilk. I never knew what it was called in French.

Megan - see! blogs are educational! lol :) I actually tried drinking some from the end of the bottle - not as bad as what I remember. Might try Sam's trick next time though.
