I used to feel somewhat “meh” towards pancakes. It’s not that I didn’t like them—I did—but I preferred french toast. These days I find myself firmly in Camp Pancakes. Oh, I still love french toast, but now I see pancakes in a whole new light.
Thanks, in part, to these fabulous buttermilk pancakes. They are truly my go-to recipe. I’ve made them over and over, and they have never failed me. Ever. Since I’d found the best pancake recipe in the whole entire world (really, I don’t feel it’s an exaggeration), I wasn’t really on the lookout for a new recipe. But the other day, I was sorting through my cookbooks and stumbled upon a recipe for oatmeal pancakes from Birdwing Spa.
I like oatmeal; I like pancakes. It seemed like a match made in heaven to me. And then I found out they’re good for you. Sold! Do I love them more then my beloved buttermilk pancakes? No. But it’s a very, very close second. They are easy, filling and reheat beautifully.
