Buttermilk Pancakes for Breakfast

Buttermilk Pancakes

My breakfast today. YUM!

Oh, don't get me wrong. These pancakes were very small... just as big as your palms. I'm not such a big eater ;) ;)

Hooray! Pancakes!

I like making them from scratch, but I have to admit that I keep some Morinaga Hotcake Mix on hand when I need to cheat.

The golden brown edges on your pancakes look so delicious I just want to take a bite!

I love it when pancakes have the crispy brown edges on them like that. Yum! Yum!

You pancakes looks absolutely yummy! :) Did you use any syrup on them? Like maple syrup or honey? I'd love mine with honey!

obachan said...

OH, you can get that Morinaga stuff over there? For me their hotcake mix is too sweet… Actually I consider Japanese “hotcake” and American pancakes as two different things, and I don’t feel like eating hotcakes for breakfast.

I love that part, too ;)

Yep. Lightly crispy edges and fluffy inside… Mmmmmm….

Yeah, I used maple syrup this time. (It’s just hard to see in these photos.) Yum!

pancakes are my favorite breakfast (with maple syrup, of course)!

Thank you. I just love pancakes with maple syrup. It's such a shame that real maple syrup is pretty expensive here in Japan...

Mmmm... I wonder if that means we have opposite personalities??? ;)

Oh my, your pancakes looked heavenly delicious. I've made mine few days ago with pillsbury's pancake mix. It's either the pan's problem or my problem. Mostly it's my cooking problem and my pancakes looked... :'( By the way, I love your blog! But I wish you could post more Japanese food with recipes cause I love Japanese food. :)

Hi cookies_cream,
Thanks for loving my blog. OK, I'll try to post more Japanese recipes (but it's hard because I usually depend on eye-measurement when I make Japanese dishes... :P )

Those pancakes look sinfully delicious! I love your blog and visit often, especially since you give very good insights on life and food in Japan. ^__^

Looks delicious!
But where did you find buttermilk in Japan? (Please don't tell me you made your own butter!)

Oh, and maple syrup is expensive in Canada too. My family always used "pancake syrup" (imitation maple syrup) instead.

I know. Look at the melted butter running down the pancakes… I believe the fat all went to my thighs.

Sinful. Very sinful.
Thanks for the compliment. Yeah, I think I’ve been posting about food in Japan once in a while, but not sure about good insights…

Ah, you got me. I’d been hoping that no one would ask me that question. OK. I cheated. I used Morinaga skimmed milk powder in place of the buttermilk powder called for in the recipe. But the recipe I always use say “buttermilk pancake” and “skimmed milk pancakes” didn’t sound appetizing to me, so I called my pancakes “buttermilk pancakes.” :P

Hey, who knows. I might make my own butter someday. ;)

Aha! Caught you.
But I'm glad to know skim milk powder could be substituted.

obachan said...

I'm actually not sure if it is a good substitute. Tell you the truth, I've never tasted REAL buttermilk pancakes before. So I cannot tell how different or close my skim milk powder version is.
