Ok, so I will admit this first recipe from the box is a bit of a cop out, but I have to start somewhere, right?
My boys requested pancakes for dinner. I had several ripe bananas, so I decided to try banana pancakes – at least they would be eating fruit. Fruit = Healthy.
My husband is the pancake master in our house. However, his recipe doesn’t contain bananas, and I have no clue how to alter a recipe. So, I consulted Google and found a fluffy banana recipe here to try.
The first ingredient is buttermilk = soured milk = a recipe I actually have in my recipe box. Perfect.
While the pancakes didn’t turn out as fluffy as I hoped, my boys said they were delicious. My 5 year old ate four and was asking for more. The recipe said it made 12 pancakes, but I made 24! Apparently I don’t make my pancakes large enough.
Let’s get back to the main point – the sour milk recipe is a keeper. I never buy buttermilk and this is a cheap and easy substitute. I like cheap and easy. The banana pancake recipe was decent, but not a keeper for me. I expected more fluff. Maybe I over-mixed. It wouldn’t be the first time.
