Whip up a batch of pancakes in no time with this basic pancake recipe. You can adjust it by switching buttermilk in for milk. If you do, add a 1/2 tsp of baking soda to the recipe. You can also add some chopped fruit to the batter. Some chopped pears in fall make a nice addition. If you do this, add a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the dry ingredients. However, if you choose to adapt this basic pancake recipe, if at all, your family will appreciate homemade pancakes over those made from a mix, or heated up from a box of frozen pancakes. Enjoy with a drizzle of good-quality maple syrup.
