In southern Utah there is a quaint cabin tucked into the hillside surrounding Panguitch Lake. It’s been there as long as I can remember, with its wide wooden porch, upstairs loft of toys, and lovely owner…who happens to be my Aunt Pat. She is a dear little lady with a knack for fishing, generously giving, and making a mean stack of Buttermilk Pancakes. Which she will happily make for you, if you sleep overnight at her cabin (and play with the fashion plates in her toy loft, which I may or may not have done when I visited her there a couple of years ago.)
Aunt Pat’s Buttermilk Pancake recipe is hands down the best pancake recipe I have ever tried. Not that I’m trying to pour ill will on the several pancake recipes that are already in my archives. School Morning Pancakes, Pumpkin Pancakes, Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Oatmeal Pancakes, and Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes all have their place in this world and in my life. I wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings you know. That said, if you are looking for a true, classic Buttermilk Pancake recipe…pretty please, my friends. Look no further. This is the recipe you have been waiting for.
Get your self some buttermilk, butter, a nice mixing bowl and whisk and you will be just minutes away from Buttermilk Pancake heaven.
Let’s do it, baby.
