Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes

These are the best...pancakes...ever. My friend, Jaime makes these and like everything she makes, they are divine. I am completely obsessed with them. You will love them so much that you will want to eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner...but don't do that, they are all oatmeal... plus you can make them with whole wheat flour without anyone knowing! So do not eat them as your three meals a day as you will be tempted to do, trust me...I've done it before, it's not pretty. But do make them right away with the Buttermilk Syrup...they go to together.

Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes
Combine in large bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight:
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups buttermilk

In the morning add to the bowl:
2 eggs
2 T. sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 t. salt
1/2 cup flour ( I use white wheat)
1 t. vanilla
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon

Mix well in mixer or by hand and drop onto hot griddle. Serve with buttermilk syrup.

Buttermilk Syrup:

2 sticks of butter
2 c. sugar
1 c. buttermilk
1 t. baking soda
2 t. vanilla

Melt butter in LARGE pot, then add sugar and buttermilk. Boil 2 minutes, remove from heat and add baking soda and vanilla. Stir well, it will bubble up profusely at this point so make sure you have a big pot. Serve over Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes. This syrup keeps well in the fridge and can be reheated in the microwave. You could make half the recipe and it makes enough, then you won't feel so bad about using 2 whole sticks of butter, but it's really, really good.

Those look so good. I wish I were a rich girl, then I would hire you to cook for me every day. Your family is so lucky. My poor Brandon. He doesn't have anything good to eat. I made my firt bunt cake for his birthday. I think I over mixed it because it was a little poofy and dry. Then I tried to make crab cakes out of my head and it was disgusting. My mom said, "you need to learn that you can't just create...follow a recipe!" I spent an hour reading the Betty Crocker cookbook and looking at the pictures that say "these eggs are underdone," "these eggs are just right," "these eggs are overdone." I learned much. Still no good food, though.

how many would you say this recipe, as it's written here, feeds?

I think this makes about 16 very hearty pancakes.

I made them at the family reunion and they were a huge hit. I did double the recipe for the pancakes but not the syrup. Perfect, just perfect. I only got to try a small piece of one because they went so fast.

Thanks Jenni.
