I was intrigued by the write up of this recipe, from Southern Living. Celebrating with pancakes instead of champagne?? Outrageous! I’ll let you check it out for yourself, because I didn’t make any changes to the recipe at all.
I only made a half batch, using 1 Tbsp white vinegar per 1 cup minus 1 Tbsp of whole milk as a substitute for buttermilk (Mix and let it sit while you get the rest of the stuff ready).
For some reason, I never get as many pancakes as advertised, out of whatever recipe I make. So, I didn’t get 10 instead of 20 — and I really really wished that we had at least 4 more to eat for our breakfast! So, don’t be stingy — if I’d had any leftover batter, I would have cooked them all up and re-heated, another day soon, in the toaster oven. You’ve been warned.
The ingredients all look “normal,” but the results are pretty much divine. Looking forward to making them again soon.

I made these at Lawrence’s cousin’s in November 2015, and then again on Valentine’s Day 2017, this time adding a big handful of blueberries. I decreased the sugar to about 3/4 c. I used almond milk instead of cow’s milk, with the vinegar mixed in and it worked fine. They really ARE good pancakes. We had a few during the next day or two, heated up in the toaster oven, and they were delicious and practically instant.
