Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

Had some leftover buttermilk so I decided to make some pancakes ..... Alton Brown had a good looking / reading recipe but I went with one from Allrecipes that was a bit simpler but still sounded good. These were so fluffy and light ....... perfect for covering with Vermont maple syrup and butter!

    If you want them even fluffier, try separating the egg, whipping the egg white until firm but not dry, and folding it gently into the batter. This is a little more work but it makes the most amazingly light pancakes.

      I made a very small batch to use up 1/2 Cup of buttermilk - so I just used a fork to froth the 1/2 egg. Next time I'll try the egg white - whipped until firm and see if the results warrant the extra work. Thanks.
