“I'm not a huge pancake fan, but these are delicious. I never would have thought of these ingredients together on my own and oh wow are they heavenly. I didn't have wheat germ so I left it out, and for the buttermilk I just throw a splash of vinegar into the milk--same thing. Recipe courtesy of All You, February 2014. If they're not all gone--put them in the fridge to eat during the week. They also freeze well to pull out for another day's breakfast.”
10 pancakes
