Classic Buttermilk Pancakes - Never Fail Recipe

Perfect, Fluffy, Sweet and Classic Buttermilk Pancakes. This Original North American Recipe never fails to produce a simple, fast breakfast. My girls asked me how to make this yesterday. I pulled out the Recipe from my 25 year old hand written recipe book.

I never thought they would surprise me this morning with Breakfast in Bed though. I was so happy and pleased with them. Really did make me feel special. They made a couple themselves  and I helped them with pouring the remaining batter.

Why not let your kids help in cooking these? The girls enjoyed this and it was some great bonding fun.
