PANCAKE TUESDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!
https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87376792034

PANCAKE TUESDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!
Dubbed the “Best Buttermilk Pancakes Ever!” (by some children’s book we have), this family favorite recipe has served us well for many Shrove Tuesdays over the years. This week, we’re inviting you to use it (or your own recipe if you desire) as we gather on Tuesday for our first (and hopefully last) virtual Pancake Tuesday Extravaganza!

Best Buttermilk Pancakes Ever!
Ingredients
1 medium egg
1 1/4 cups of buttermilk*
2 tablespoons of oil
1 1/4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of honey (optional, other sweeteners can be substituted).

Instructions
In a medium bowl, using a fork, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a small bowl, beat the egg into the buttermilk, oil, and honey.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir gently until just blended. The batter will be lumpy.

Heat a pan and cook in oil, butter, or bacon fat.

*If you don’t have buttermilk, combine 1 tbsp of white vinegar or lemon juice with enough milk to make 1 cup. Let it sit for five minutes and voila! Buttermilk pancakes, here we come.
