She is still the queen. And here’s her Buttermilk Pancake recipe.

I remember sitting on my couch in my apartment I shared with my roommate Shannon.  I was 20.  She had turned the TV onto some woman cooking something. That woman she had turned on, Martha Stewart, was soon to be someone I was going to learn a lot from. A little  known secret about me is that I used to make a mean box of macaroni and cheese when I was 10, and I instructed my imaginary audience all along the way.  So if someone has their own cooking show, I’m automatically jealous, and attentive.

I checked out her cookbooks, watched her TV shows, and followed her legal woes.  And I of course watched the made for TV movie of her life story.  I even looked into getting a job when I graduated at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.  I heart her.  And her buttermilk pancake recipe.

Breakfast for dinner is nothing new at my house.  It happens at least once a week.  And pancakes is the most requested dish by far.  Now I grew up on the box of Bisquick.  So I’m not going to knock it, if thats your go to.  Well, ok, I am.   This recipe is free of chemicals, and so much tastier.  So if your new to cooking, and are afraid to pitch the box, I dare you.  Or if you aren’t new to cooking, and need a go to recipe for pancakes, search no more.  She’s still the queen.  And I give you, Martha Stewart’s Best Buttermilk Pancakes. (and no, you can not substitute the buttermilk for plain milk)

2 cups all-purpose flour (please use unbleached)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups buttermilk
4 Tbsp unsalted butter melted

Heat griddle to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons butter; whisk to combine
Batter should have small to medium lumps

Using a pastry brush, brush remaining 1/2 tsp butter on the griddle (ok, so I don’t do this part, I just slap some pats of butter on it)

Using a 1/2 cup pour in pools on the griddle.  When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, flip over.  Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.

This part is from me: pour only 100% pure maple syrup on top and sprinkle with chopped nuts.  Or blueberries, or chocolate chips, whatever your little heart desires!
