Most of my favourite recipes are a result of trial and error.
I cook breakfast pretty much every day and sometimes people are here for several days, so I need to have a good variety of breakfast options.
People ask for pancakes ALL the time. And when I serve them, they’re ALL gone. It is the recipe I get asked for most often.
I tried a lot of different recipes but this is the one that’s stuck. The 2 secrets are the buttermilk, which gives them a really lovely texture and flavour – and making the batter well ahead of time. I make mine the night before and leave it covered in the fridge overnight.
The basis of the recipe is from The Food Network.
