Sibling Rivalry

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins….As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. 

1 Peter 4:8,10

These are the only pancakes you will ever need in your life! They are so good in fact, that they have spawned a sibling rivalry.

You see, my brother and I have always been competitive. I blame it on the fact that we are 9 years apart in age, and thus were raised more like only children. Well a few years ago we all decided as an extended family to take a Christmas trip to the mountains to spend some time together. My mom, not in her best thinking, thought we should have a pancake contest to see between her, my brother, and myself who could make the best pancakes. We all made up batches of our best pancakes and then let all the kids decide which ones they liked the best. It was close, but mine just beat out the others with this delicious recipe. So, not only am I my parents favorite, I also make better pancakes!

The secret to these pancakes is that they are super thin with a good amount of buttermilk syrup. This syrup is like liquid gold!

Buttermilk Pancakes with Buttermilk Syrup

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 salt
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, melted

Sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, and cooled melted butter. Cook on both sides on a hot buttered griddle or frying pan until both sides are golden brown.

Buttermilk Syrup

  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Combine butter, sugar, and buttermilk in a sauce pan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and butter is melted. Remove from heat and add baking soda and vanilla. The mixture will foam, but don’t be alarmed, it’s suppose to!

These have become my kids most requested breakfast dish on the weekends, and I certainly don’t mind indulging them when they are this easy and delicious!

Until next time,
