Aunt Viola's Buttermilk Pancakes

mary Armstrong


This recipe has been in my family since 1976. There is no other pancake recipe needed in our home.
These freeze well after made. I like to cool them, then wrap in wax paper and put in freezer bags in individual servings. Take out and microwave. Makes a quick breakfast and or snack.
