Pancakes for a Crowd

My only problem with this recipe is the quantity of batter this makes - about enough to feed a crowd of 7. My husband and I are alone, so we can cut this recipe in half and still have twice as much batter as we need...

butter milk

can't find this in any stores around hear, people look at me like I'm from outer space.

buttermilk pancakes

should be near the regular milk, but it's one word - buttermilk - all kinds of brands


Refrigerated buttermilk has to be used up pretty quickly -- there is a powdered buttermilk that has a long shelf life and works well for these. It can be found in the baking aisle. It's good for marinating chicken cutlets too, yummy.


I tend to make buttermilk pancakes and bran muffins in the same day since the container of buttermilk doesn't keep long in the fridge. This way I use the whole container up.

Buttermilk Substitute

If you can't find buttermilk in your local grocery, you can make it at home yourself.
How to Make Buttermilk With Vinegar
Measure 1 tbsp. of white vinegar into a 1-cup measuring cup.
Fill the measuring cup with regular whole or skim milk.
Stir gently to distribute the vinegar throughout the milk.
Let the mixture sit for five minutes so that the milk begins to coagulate slightly.
