My Pancake Recipe

I was checking out one of my favorite sites yesterday ( to look up what on earth I was going to do with a 4 pound pork butt that was in my fridge. I needed some inspiration. Was I going to make a traditional roast with root veggies? (Too redundant at the moment.) Maybe some tamales? (Too time consuming.) A ha! Pulled pork for BBQ sandwiches. Perfect! Easy, yummy, and just what the Dr. ordered. So, what does pork have to do with pancakes? Well, nothing...Other than the darling children's book "If you give a Pig a Pancake."

But as I was on the site, I happened to catch something out of the corner of my eye that looked familiar.


My very own pancake recipe was the featured recipe of the day. How cool is that? (Well, probably only cool to me...but still...)

So, I thought I'd share that recipe here. I've made these pancakes for more years than I can count. Okay, well maybe not THAT long. But still, a couple of decades anyway. My mother always used soured milk in her pancakes, waffles, cakes...whatever called for buttermilk. We just never had buttermilk in the house, but we always had milk and vinegar. So, don't let that trip you up. Soured milk is a perfectly perfect substitute for buttermilk. Don't let anyone tell you different!

This link will take you right to the recipe page:

If you want to see some of my food photos, click on my name (kris) in blue next to the recipe's picture. That will take you to my profile page and you can get to my photo gallery from there. And don't tell me how nutty I am that I take pictures of food! I love food! Why not take pictures of it? The hard part is taking the picture before I eat the stuff. I love eating even more than I love photography!



  1. I knew I shouldn't have opened this post-at first, it turned my stomach, thinking pork and pancakes. I got down to the picture of the pancakes, yummy, gotta make pancakes.

  2. My Mom always told me to put vinegar in milk if I didn't have buttermilk on hand when I was making her famous chocolate cake! I'm glad to see you verified it! ;-D These pancakes look wonderful. Maybe having them for supper right now!
