Sunday Brunch: Gale Gand's Buttermilk Pancakes
I'm always in search of the perfect pancake recipe, so I was intrigued when I came across this one in Gale Gand's Brunch! Buttermilk, which gives these pancakes a delicious tang, is deceptively named. Buttermilk is not particularly fattening or buttery, because it's actually the liquid left behind after butter is churned out of cream.
Blueberry season is coming up in most parts of the country, so feel free to make these into blueberry blueberry pancakes. Just put a few blueberries on each pancake when they're already in the pan or on the griddle. If you put them in the batter before the pancakes hit the pan they are much more likely to bleed. And if you just can't wait until blueberry season rolls around, frozen or canned wild Maine blueberries taste great in pancakes.
