Buttermilk Pancakes

I don't really love pancakes. They're ok, a little doughy, kind of boring. I do, however, love these pancakes. And to my mind there's something a little decadent about a good pancake breakfast (or, for that matter, lunch or dinner) that makes them even more fun to eat.

So, if you happen to have some time on a morning, and buttermilk left over from making scones, and feel like making a treat for whoever else is in the house, these will make everyone happy. No matter how gloomy and cold it is outside.

Buttermilk Pancakes
1 1/2 cups flour
1 to 3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg
2 eggs
3 tbsp. melted butter or oil
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla

1. Mix dry (first 6) ingredients in a bowl
2. In another bowl, beat eggs and add butter/oil, buttermilk, and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into dry ones and stir.
3. Heat a nonstick or lightly buttered pan over medium-high heat. Drop 1/4 cup batter in at a time. Wait until small bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake-to-be (will take a couple minutes), and then flip them. Cook for another minute. Don't pat or screw with them more than necessary.
