Maple Buttermilk Breakfasts

On my very first day home from college I was starving, so I scavenged the fridge. To my delight, I found buttermilk and real maple syrup, two luxuries I never buy for myself but absolutely adore. That night I had my fill of fluffy and delicious maple buttermilk pancakes. They were to die for.

I love to add an extra swirl of maple syrup right before scooping the batter out on the pancake pan. Delish!
Fluffy Maple Buttermilk Pancakes/ Waffles
makes 16 pancakes or 8 waffles
1 cup flour
1 cup quick rolled oats
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 ½ cups buttermilk
1 ripe banana, mashed
2 eggs
¼ cup butter, softened
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Mix the flour, oats, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar together. Set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, butter, buttermilk, banana, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar together.

To make pancakes, preheat a nonstick pancake pan to medium low heat so that when you pour a drop of water on it, the water “dances” until it evaporates. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and scoop out a few tablespoons at a time onto the pancake pan. Cook until the top gets bubbly and dry, and then flip and cook the other side until lightly browned. Adjust the temperature of the stove as you make all the pancakes to ensure that the pan does not get too hot.

To make waffles, mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Preheat your waffle iron and follow the instructions it gives you to make waffles. Mine made about 8.

Serve your pancakes or waffles with a pat of butter and a warm drizzle of maple syrup.

I loved the pancakes so much that I had to experiment with making them into muffins. You have to make these ASAP. It will be love at first bite.

Bake for 22 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the muffins sit in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
