With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Stacked Buttermilk Pancakes

Stacked Buttermilk Pancakes

My friend, Kathleen @Cuisine Kathleen creates the prettiest tablescapes and shares delicious recipes.
Kathleen sent me the cutest set of flower-shaped pancake molds.
It didn't take me long to make a stack of the sweetest pancakes ever.
And, Bill, (of Affordable Accoutrements) since you were so gracious  in your disappointment, should I ever have the opportunity, I will make you your very own stack of pancakes too!
The molds have a hole in the center that leaves a perfect opening for filling with your favorite fruit or compote.
I used the Williams~Sonoma recipe on the box.
They were different from our regular pancakes ~ more of a spongy texture.  Lighter but delicious! 

Buttermilk Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 Tbs. vegetable oil or nonstick cooking spray
  • Maple syrup for serving

Directions:

In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs on medium speed until frothy. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla. Stir just until the batter is smooth and no lumps of flour remain; do not overbeat.

Heat a griddle over medium-high heat until a few drops of water flicked onto the surface skitter across it. Lightly grease the griddle and the inside surface of the pancake molds with vegetable oil, or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set the molds on the griddle and heat until hot.

Pour batter into each mold. Cook until bubbles form on top and the batter is set, about 2 minutes. Remove the molds and, using a spatula, flip the pancakes. Cook until golden brown on the other side, about 2 minutes more. Keep warm until all the pancakes are cooked.

Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the griddle as needed. Serve with maple syrup.
Makes 12-15 pancakes; serves 4.
 Thank you, Kathleen!

I've seen molds for eggs but not for pancakes! How cute! I love them whatever shape they are!
Sometimes very thin with crispy brown edges, served piping hot with lots of butter and a bit of sugar ~ that's the way my German Grandma made them, for an evening snack. Or regular with butter and hot maple syrup for breakfast! MMmmmm! It's all good! :~P
