Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Everybody loves some good buttermilk pancakes for breakfast, and these will do it for ya. These are some of the best pancakes i've had (next to The Pancake Pantry). This is my grandma's recipe and we've been making these as long as I can remember. I hope you enjoy them like we do! I put blueberries in them this time, but you can do whatever you would like. Sometimes we mix it up and leave them plain, or do my favorite combo, chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter and syrup.. yum. Here's what you need for the buttermilk pancakes
An egg, sugar, baking powder, flour, baking soda, oil, buttermilk, salt, and whatever add-ins you want. Crack the egg in a large measuring cup, slightly whisk
Whisk in oil and buttermilk. Add all the dry ingredients
Beat that together until combined and there are no lumps, but be careful not to over beat or your pancakes will become chewy. Add your choice of add-ins
Fold in. Scoop batter into a buttery pan
When the middle of the pancake starts too look a little dry and bubbly, flip it
Then leave it alone until it is done cooking. If you keep flipping it, it won't cook through in the middle and it will have the texture of a goodyear tire. So just don't do it :) Top with some butter, syrup, and blueberries (or your favorite pancake toppings)
Cut em open and eat up! I promise these are not hard, so do not be intimidated by homemade pancakes!

Buttermilk Pancakes
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbs. oil (vegetable, canola)
1 cup AP flour
1 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
-Your choice of mix-ins

In a large glass pourable measuring cup, combine buttermilk, egg, and oil; beat. Add dry ingredients and mix until there are no lumps. (Be careful not to over mix, or your pancakes will become tough.) Fold in your mix-ins, unless each person wants something different. If that is the case, sprinkle your mix-in on each pancake right when you pour the batter on the cooktop. Cook on a skillet or stove-top pan. Flip when the middle starts to look a little dry and bubbly. Finish cooking, and serve.
