"This pancake recipe is perfect for 2 or 3 people. It makes a nice weekend breakfast. It makes approximately 4-6 pancakes, depending on how large or small you make them. If you want to serve them all at one time, you can warm them up in the microwave for just a few seconds before serving. Besure to add a bit of oil to the pan after each pancake is cooked."

Step 1

Preheat a non-stick skillet on medium to medium low heat, or a griddle that has been coated with a teaspoon of oil.

Step 2

In a bowl, or large measuring cup, whisk together the flour, baking soda, sugar and salt.

Step 3

Add in the buttermilk, egg and butter. Stir mixture together just to combine. It doesn’t matter if there is flour lumps in there. Do not over stir the batter!

Step 4

Pour about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter into the oiled hot skillet or on the griddle. Sprinkle a few pecans over the batter.

Step 5

When the pancakes have bubbles on top and around the edges, flip over and cook on the other side until browned; about 1½-2 minutes on each side.

Step 6

Serve with butter and maple syrup.

My grandchildren came to visit and they love pancakes, and I remembered this recipe so I made them this weekend. The kids told me they are yummy and they want them next time they come. I agree with them too, they are yummy!

These are definitely on the top of my list to have on weekend mornings. We love them with butter and cinnamon and sugar or powdered sugar, and also with strawberry sauce and whipped cream. Yummy!

What a great breakfast these pancakes make. We loved them with thick syrup poured over the top along with a few blueberries. These could easily become a frequent weekend breakfast!
