Fluffy, tall, soft homemade buttermilk pancakes, does it get any better than this! I halved this recipe since there are only 2 of us. There are a couple of things you want to remember when making them. The dry ingredients and wet ingredients are mixed in separate bowls and not combined until you're ready to make them. Let your buttermilk , milk and eggs sit out to room temperature before mixing with the cooled melted butter. If they are cold ,the melted butter will solidify and you'll have butter chunks. When you're ready to mix the dry and wet ingredients together, only mix until the ingredients are incorporated. The batter will be lumpy, you want it that way. I made my pancakes in a large cast iron skillet. I heated the skillet, before I made the pancakes I sprinkled water droplets in the pan , they danced and sizzled around the skillet and evaporated, it was time to make the cakes. I used my 1/2 cup measuring cup to measure the batter out. This gave me nice big pancakes. While they are cooking, don't turn the pancakes until you see little holes appearing on the tops of the cakes, check the bottom for a deep golden brown color then flip the cakes.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter. Keep the two mixtures separate until you are ready to cook.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. You can flick water across the surface and if it beads up and sizzles, it's ready!
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a wooden spoon or fork to blend. Stir until it's just blended together. Do not over stir! Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/2 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
