Buttermilk Pancakes

My brother Louis has been making waffles and blogging about it for the last few days, so he put me in the mood for waffles...and being that this is the last day of my birthday I am going out with a is the Gourmet Cookbook recipe for Buttermilk Waffles. You will need a waffle if you have one living in the back of your cabinets, pull it out and dust it off...these are that good!

This recipe makes about 6 waffles, so I cut the recipe in half for Paul and I today. It is actually easy to make for brunch or for a group of people.

3 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 1/4 cups shaken buttermilk
1 1/2 sticks butter (12 tbsp) melted and cooled
3 eggs lightly beaten
Cooking spray for the waffle iron

Set a baking sheet in the oven and set it iat 200 degrees, as you finish the waffles, just pop them in the oven to keep them warm.

Mix the dry ingridients, then add the wet. Batter will be thick.

Spray the waffle iron and add the batter. Don't overfill because they puff up a bit. Transfer to baking sheet to keep warm. Serve immediately.

I served these with sliced strawberries, black berries and toasted walnuts, with maple syrup...yummy!
