Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

I know this isn’t surprising. I am a cake gal and having to choose… of course my favorite would be a cake. So which pancake is my favorite? My best ever buttermilk pancakes recipe!

Perfectly crisp around the edges, fluffy and flavorful.  They are perfect, when topped with fresh raspberries, homemade pancake syrup and a sprinkling of toasted almonds.  Heavenly!

The pancakes freeze beautifully for a fantastic and quick weekday breakfast too.  I like to premix the dry ingredients for spur of the moment meal.  Add orange zest to really make them pop.  Make sure to save me some, I am crazing them again already!
