My grandpa created this pancake recipe. Whenever we went to visit he would make a point of making these. Brings back lots of memories.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Nothing says morning comfort quite like good buttermilk pancakes... and these are among the best we've had! Super light and super flavorful, these thin pancakes stack up nicely. They have a tart buttermilk flavor with a hint of sweetness. They're definitely thinner than a traditional pancake but thicker than a crepe. Serve with some fruit and whipped cream or maple syrup for a morning delight. If you have a griddle, they cook well on that which makes the cooking process a snap.
