Buttermilk Pancakes with Buttermilk Syrup

Happy National Pancake Day! My 3 year old is all about having pancakes for breakfast and asks almost every single day for me to make them! He manages to sweet talk me into making his cute little self them at least once a week. I have tried adding chocolate chips or blueberries in the batter and that is not up his alley! He likes just regular pancakes with syrup only. The rest of us usually pile ours high with whatever fruit we have on hand. Caramelizing a little peaches on top is a favorite of mine during peach season with a dollop of whipped cream. Here is our families go-to pancakes and syrup recipe!

Buttermilk Pancakes
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 egg

2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour, sifted

Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Preheat griddle to medium-high heat. Pour even amounts onto hot griddle and cook until sides begin to look dry. Flip over and lightly brown on other side. Butter pancakes and serve with buttermilk syrup!

Buttermilk Syrup
1 cube butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

In a saucepan over medium heat melt the butter, sugar, and buttermilk until it comes to a boil. Then remove from heat and add the vanilla and baking soda. Stir together and it should begin to foam up. Serve hot. This can also be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
