Who doesn’t love some good old buttermilk pancakes?? These are no ordinary buttermilk pancakes, they are extra fluffy and taste way better than any other buttermilk pancakes. And I am not just saying that cause I made them. But no joke, these things are so good, not as good as chocolate chip pancakes, but chocolate chip has chocolate in the, it’s really no comparison. But with that said, these are still amazing!!!

So you know in the winter if it snows a lot you get a delay? Well I hate those. They completely mess up my schedule, and whats the point of having like 30 minute classes and lunch as soon as you get to school. I go to wake up at 6:30am on a daily basis to go to work, then I leave. But with these delays, my family have to go to work if they can’t get off, me I can just reschedule my day. I don’t like to but you do what you gotta do. But there is one good thing about these delays, I have to stay home for an extra like 2 hours. That is a perfect amount of time for making some fresh and fluffy buttermilk pancakes! I bake a lot so I have buttermilk just in my house, if it’s snowing and you don’t have buttermilk and can’t get to a store, just put in regular milk. They will not be buttermilk pancakes, they will be plain. But they will still be extra fluffy and taste really good!!!

I like my pancakes (and waffles) really fluffy. So I put in extra baking powder and adjusted the other ingredients and came up with a really fluffy pancake!

This batter makes 10 servings of pancakes. If you can’t tell, that is a lot of pancakes!! You can freeze the batter and make it at a later date, or you can make all the pancakes and freeze the pancakes. Or you can keep it in the fridge for a few days. If you want to make the rest of the pancakes in the next 3 days, put the batter in the fridge. If you want to make it later, put it in the freezer. If you look down at the ingredients, everything has like a cup and a tablespoon, sorry about that, its what you gotta do to make them taste good!

I make a big breakfast once in a while, and I admit, I go all out. I serve this with scrambled eggs, fruit, bacon, ham, sausage, and muffins. Any of those will be good with it. I don’t do this but my grandpa used to, I would make sweet sausage, like marinate it in maple syrup and cook it. And he would put it in the middle of his pancake and eat it like a omlet. Actually,m it taste really good with a buttermilk pancake.

Birthday Funfetti Pancakes

Happy Birthday! I first made these fora girl who was turning 12. She has a late August birthday so she had to go back to school a few days later. When I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she asked for makeup and clothes.  Talk about puberty!! She was so concerned on looking perfect at school and being all popular. She never card until then and I was like, what just happened to you??!!!! That is when I decided to make pretty pancakes!! If people want to look good, why can’t pancakes? I just made my normal favorite pancake mix then added sprinkles. I was nervous cause it was her birthday and if I messed this up it would be a waste of food and money. I like my pancakes fat, thick, and fluffy. That is just what these were!! They were amazing! Thick light and fluffy!!! It looked as good as it taste!! Oh and tip, when I say sprinkles, I mean sprinkles not sugar crystals.

She had no idea I was making these, I didn’t even until I saw her oufit that day. But it is the best surprise!! Any surprise on your birthday is good but breakfast starts your day great. Everything is better with sprinkles! confetti screams birthday to me. That is why confetti cupcakes are called birthday cake flavored cupcakes, not confetti

Now that school is coming closer, it is way harder to make breakfast for my family. My family eats cereal every morning. But people like me, with weekday birthdays every year, its gets annoying having cereal everyday. These are quick and easy and they are a life saver! They taste good, then they look birthday spirited. As much as I love my family, I also love my sleep and I don’t want to be waking up at 3am making pancakes. These take less then 5 minutes to prep and no more then 10 minutes to cook and cool all them!  So ba-bam perfect birthday breakfast!!

Pancakes with sprinkles, presents, birthday cake, and balloons!! What ca be better?

Who can resist a pancake?? A light fluffy pancake warm pancake!! A great way to start off your day. There are so many pancake recipes you might ask ” what is different about this one?” Well I will tell you, I don’t know. I honestly don’t. I don’t know why, but they are so fluffy ans soft and taste amazing!  It so light. I hate blueberries, they have an annoying texture and I don’t think they taste that good. But I will say, I love an old fashion buttery fluffy pancake. But the blueberries taste great with the pancake. I am not gonna waste my time telling you how it taste cause everybody knows how a blueberry pancake taste.

So my nephew is going into middle school. He is the most shy person I have ever met!! Walks with his head down. Just kidding, he is loud and proud and is excited to get out of middle school. For 6 years he didn’t go with the flow of elementary school, but him and middle school mix well. Like pancakes and blueberries.

Something about the juicy blueberry goes so good with the fluffy buttery pancake. I wanted to make something when they came down to my house for a few days. I looked in the fridge and found 2 pints of blueberries. I wanted to make something with those cause nobody in my family likes blueberries. (I have no idea whey they were in the fridge) He loves pancakes so I just popped them into my homemade batter. The best batters are homemade. It always has a weird sourness when I make it from the box. So until I find a good box mix, Scratch it is!

If blueberry pancakes aren’t good enough for you, top it with whipped cream and fresh blueberries or maple syrup. personally, I think whip cream on pancakes is a must!! It just goes together, I don’t know who thought of whip cream on pancakes but their a hero! Like waffles, pancakes must have whipped cream!

I made these pancakes with a tablespoon of sugar. You can add more or less but it taste best with a tablespoon, perfect pairs

Like my nephew and middle school!
