World’s Best Pancake Recipe?

A couple weeks ago my friend and I made what some deem as the “World’s Best Pancake Recipe.”  Who considers this the best pancake recipe?   Who really knows.  Never-the-less we made them anyway.  Our pancakes turned out fluffy and golden brown, crispy on the outside and light and airy on the inside.  Everything a pancake should be.  Real buttermilk is absolutely key in this recipe and makes a big difference.

So is this really the best pancake recipe out there?  Probably not.  But these pancakes were pretty darn good!
