Breakfast for Dinner

Tonight I had all my gal pals over to enjoy breakfast for dinner. Buttermilk pancakes (banana or chocolate chip or both), bacon, OJ and fruit was on the menu! Quite a successful evening!

Here is the recipe for the buttermilk pancakes! Delish - give them a try, they are SO easy to make! (Thanks to Kate for the recipe)

Yields: 15 medium sized pancakes

- 6 tsp. unsalted butter
- 6 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 4 cups buttermilk
- 4 eggs

- Heat the oven to 200°F. Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave or in a small saucepan on the stove and set aside to cool briefly.
- In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
- In a medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk and eggs
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients
- Whisk gently until the dry ingredients are almost incorporated; stop before the batter is evenly moistened
- Add the cooled melted butter and mix just until the batter is evenly moistened (there will be lumps)

- Heat a griddle or a large pan over medium heat (or set an electric griddle to 375°F)
- Lightly oil or butter the pan
- Add scoop of pancake mix to griddle
- Let cook undisturbed until bubbles rise to the surface and the edges look dry, 1 to 2 minutes
- Check the underside of each pancake to make sure it’s nicely browned; then flip
- Cook until the second side is nicely browned, about 1 minute more
- Transfer the pancakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve HOT with butter and maple syrup
