Buttermilk Pancakes - Reshared Knol

Why make pancakes from scratch?

The classic American pancake has many variations, but the buttermilk pancake is its highest form. Properly made, it is extra light, almost nothing in your mouth. Its flavor is also more complex, revealing a depth beyond just the syrup poured over the top. It is also, unfortunately, one of the rarest finds in American kitchens: most pancakes are either microwaved (shudder) or made from a mix, which is too bad as they are so easy to make. Once you've had them like this, there is no going back..

I am not a professional chef. I have, however, made thousands of pancakes. I have three boys and Sunday morning is usually pancake morning. I have tried all the classic recipes, with hundreds of variations in ingredients, cookware, and technique. I'm always learning new tips and tricks, so this is a never-ending quest. I've also made pancakes in dozens of less than optimal situations: no eggs, no buttermilk, no salt, even no flour. These extenuating circumstances have taught me quite a bit about what is important.

The goal of this article to go far beyond just a recipe, encouraging those who feel they can't cook to give this a shot. Good cooking is much more than just saving money, it is a creative act that shows you care at many levels. Kids devouring pancakes that come from your hand is about as good as it gets.

This is a rather long article for 'just pancakes', but it tries to cover both beginner and advanced techniques. The first two chapters are all you need to get started. You can stop there. The remaining chapters are for those of you who are as crazy as I am and want to create the perfect pancake.
