I would love to know if anyone else has tried this recipe, and how it came out. I have a concern about using buttermilk recipes as DW is very sensitive to sour flavors. But this recipe sounds like it would be very rich, bursting with flavor, and from the listed ingredients, about the same texture as my recipe.

If no one has tried this recipe, and if you're in the mood, give it a try and report back for all of our knowledge, pleeeease.

Thanks in advance.

Have you ever mentioned what you use to pour out your pancake batter? I was looking on Amazon at some items and they all get good and bad reviews.

I just use a tablespoon. I put three tbs. of batter onto the grill for each pancake. At that size, I can get four pancakes on at the same time. It's tight, but I can flip those babies without them wandering into their neighbor's space.

Sounds like the perfect solution. Thanks.

I have a gravy ladle that holds 1/4 cup and it is perfect for 4 inch pancakes.

I use a 1/2 cup measuring cup.

Some batter remains in it so I probably am using 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake!

My Mother used to use a Buchan thistle pitcher from Scotland. She mixed the batter in it and poured the pancakes from it. Leftover batter went into the refrigerator, additional ingredients were added the next morning. I keep that pitcher in my kitchen and think of her when I use it. It is funny the power we give to everyday objects.

I use a vollrath disher (ice cream scoop made for portion control)

I have them in numerous sizes, my largest one is 1/2 cup, and when I make waffle batter, 2 of these make a perfect sized waffle in my waffle maker.

Wouldn't a 1 cup measuring cup do the same in one scoop?

Yes, but I'd have to scrape out the batter from the cup, with the scoop, I just use the trigger and the batter comes right out. This happens with one hand and one tool instead of two!
