This weekend, treat yourself to some buttermilk pancakes. The best buttermilk pancake recipe that I have ever come across (and I do mean ever) is right here at Allrecipes.com.
Make them according to the recipe. The biggest thing is to not combine the wet and dry ingredients together until just before you're ready to cook them and to not over-stir them when you do. They will come out thick and fluffy.
I cook for two growing boys, my wife, my mom, and myself and usually make a batch for 8 servings (the recipe is, by default, makes 12). That leaves no leftovers at my house.
