Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope everyone is having or had a great day :)
Growing up, my mother made it a point on every Valentine's Day to get my siblings and I something special every year. Whether it was a cute little heart shaped box of candy or Valentine socks, we always knew we were loved on this special day.
When I was pregnant with my first child, I had this sudden urge to start thinking of traditions for every holiday under the sun...including Valentine's Day. Amoung some of the traditions we have done over the years, the idea of making homemade buttermilk pancakes the morning of Valentine's Day is one of them. You make them, then cut into heart shapes using just your average heart shaped cookie cutters. Sprinkle them with powdered sugar and serve :)
On normal days, we use the premade boxed pancake mix. On holidays though, I make this special buttermilk pancake recipe. It makes it super special for the whole family and we all love it :)
Homade Buttermilk Pancakes
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
2 tbsp. melted butter
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar into a bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter. Stir until there is a minimal amount of lumps. Pour a little over a 1/4 of a cup for each pancake. Bake on a hot and lightly greased griddle or pan for about 3-5 minutes per side. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar and serve with syrup.
Happy Valentine's Day :)
