New Year Buttermilk Pancakes

After our awesome New Year’s Eve party, the tenants of 731 needed a bit of recovery time and a delicious brunch to start the new year.  Plus it was Melissa’s 26th birthday, she needed pancakes and I love making pancakes.   After cleaning up the mess from the night before and getting some coffee in our systems, I started mixing.

We had buttermilk leftover from the night before, so I decided to use it up and make buttermilk pancakes from the great Betty Crocker Cookbook.  I also needed to make the gluten free, so instead of doubling a batch I made one gluten free and one whole wheat batch of pancakes.  Both were absolutely delicious, as a pancake should be.  To make the Gluten free pancakes I used Bob’s Red Mill all purpose flour in place of all flour.
