On a cold winter morning, there is nothing more warm and wonderful than tiny Snowflake Pancakes! I've always been told that the best way to know if a pancake recipe is good is if it tastes good all by itself - no syrup, no fruit, and warm from the griddle. Simply sprinkled with powdered sugar, these tiny and tender buttermilk pancakes are both magical and delicious!
My little ones just love it when we have a "backward day" - which basically means that I'm making them breakfast for dinner tonight. And when I tell them that it's okay to eat their dinner with their little hands? LOTS of smiles! Even better!
Slightly bigger than silver dollar pancakes, and sky-high, they are fluffy, flavorful and oh-so-tender.
I love using my Nordic Ware Snowflake Griddle, but you can also use snowflake cookie cutters if you don't want to use a special pan. Spray the griddle or inside of the cookie cutters with non-stick cooking spray, and you can go to town with snowflake after snowflake!
These cook and stack up higher than you can imagine - the shape of the snowflake griddle or cookie cutters helps to prevent spreading, and the little snowflakes just burst straight up - tender and golden!
Some tasty turkey bacon and a big glass of orange juice, and dinner OR breakfast is served!
Perfect for a snowy day, or just for fun! Hope that you enjoy these as much as we do!
2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour (sifted & spooned to measure, not scooped!)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups buttermilk (room temperature)
2 large eggs (room temperature)
2 tablespoons butter (melted) or vegetable oil
Special Equipment: Nordic Ware Snowflake Griddle or Snowflake Cookie Cutters
HOW I MAKE THESE:
NOTE: If using cookie cutters, spray the inside with non-stick spray and place them directly on the griddle/skillet and pour batter to cover bottom of each cookie cutter. When the edges are set and golden and middle has started to bubble, gently remove cookie cutter and flip.
YIELD: 12 pancakes
