Cooking with Kyle: Easy made-from-scratch buttermilk pancake recipe

OKLAHOMA CITY- This simple but classic recipe is a fantastic way to teach children and motivate them to learn cooking. Great for snow/ice days, a weekend breakfast or a winter supper, this recipe yields 12 large pancakes.

2 C flour
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 T sugar
2 C buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 t Vanilla extract

Combine and sift together dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk until blended – do not over mix. The batter will be slightly lumpy. Allow batter to rest 10 minutes before cooking.
While the batter is resting, lightly oil a griddle or skillet and preheat it over medium-high heat. Griddle/skillet is ready when a small drop of water “dances” on the hot metal.
Pour or ladle the desired amount of batter into skillet/griddle. Allow to cook until tiny bubbles appear and the edge looks a bit dry. Flip and continue to cook roughly 90 seconds or until done. Pancakes may be kept warm on a bakery sheet in a warm oven, lightly covered.
