Buttermilk Pancakes {Fabulous Food Friday #146}

It’s been over 6 months since I last posted a FFF (Fabulous Food Friday) recipe.  That’s weird!  I’m getting back on track and actually have a couple future FFF recipes all lined up for you.

Back in 2000 I was obsessed with the website, Top Secret Recipes.  I had printed off dozens of recipes and this is the only one I ever made.  It’s the only pancake recipe I’ve made ever since.  My family loves them!  I’ve gotten smart and quadruple the batch (see below), cook them all, then freeze them.  In the mornings it take a minute in the microwave and they are just as perfect as when they were first cooked!  Is your family a pancake family, too?

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed
    to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do
    not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get
    more. Thanks
