This blog is certainly no stranger to a pancake. We've shared a recipe for pumpkin pancakes and another for crepes here before, however it's only appropriate (yesterday being Shrove Tuesday and this week being National Pancake Week) that we share our favorite recipe for fluffy beautiful golden brown pancakes.
I've made it known before the secret to a perfect pancake is all in the butter. This recipe is certainly no exception. To get that golden crust you need butter, real butter. Whisked into the batter and in the pan. Real butter. No substitutes. This recipe is often the sole reason I drag myself out of bed on the weekends, for a fluffy warm buttery pancake hug. Trust me on this one, you'll never make pancakes with margarine or imitation butter spray again.
