Mini Buttermilk Pancakes

I may have inadvertently stumbled upon a theme here. A miniaturized breakfast foods theme. I've made mini muffins, mini cinnamon pull-apart breads and now mini pancakes, all within a couple of weeks. It was unintentional, honest, but I can't seem to help myself - but they're all so cute.

This morning my son asked for pancakes for breakfast. Instead of making the usual Mickey Mouse ones that are a staple in my house, I decided to try a recipe that I was drooling over earlier in the week. These pancakes are super easy and absolutely delicious. They puff up into the most tender pillows of deliciousness. And don't be alarmed when your kids ask for their fifth pancake, they are minis after all. The picture is a bit deceiving, they look bigger because those are salad plates  they're sitting on - not dinner plates. 

Recipe for Mini Buttermilk Pancakes
(adapted from Lick the Bowl Good)
1 cup flour
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1 Tbsp. vanilla
Maple syrup for serving
Preheat griddle over medium heat.
Stir together dry ingredients. Beat egg until lighter in color and slightly foamy, then stir into dry mixture, along with buttermilk and butter and vanilla. Mix until just blended, being careful not to over-mix. No one likes tough pancakes.

Spoon 2 Tbsp. of batter onto a griddle sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Flip when edges are slightly dry and cook underside until golden brown. Serve with extra butter and maple syrup.

Makes 12-15 mini pancakes.
