How To Make Buttermilk Pancakes

  1. Place medium sized non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Place flour, oats, baking soda, salt and walnuts into a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine then pour in buttermilk, egg and vanilla, mixing to combine.
  3. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter into hot skillet, swirling to make round. Cook until browned then flip to brown other side. Remove and stack onto plate. Continue finishing pancakes until batter is gone. To serve, layer sliced bananas around edges of each pancake and drizzle with warm caramel sauce.

Tips For Making The Best Pancakes

  1. Mix lightly and give batter a rest!  Mix pancakes minimally to avoid forming toughening gluten. There are a few ways to ensure that you mix pancake batter well without overmixing it. Have all your ingredients at room temperature. Mix cold buttermilk and eggs with melted butter and you get clumps of butter—not the end of the world, but not optimal for even distribution.
  2. Mix the wet and the dry ingredients separately before combining.
  3. Give the batter a rest before cooking. A rest of at least five minutes allows for the even hydration of the batter and also allows the gluten you created—which will develop even with careful, minimal mixing—to relax. The lumps will smooth out somewhat during this rest.
  4. Test a small pancake in the hot skillet/griddle to make sure temperature is good.  No need to waste a full size pancake.
  5. Cook until bubbles cover the surface; flip before they all break.
