Buttermilk Pancakes

Breakfast is certainly not my favorite meal...actually I could easily skip it on any given day. And if you had asked me, prior to this morning, what my favorite breakfast food was I would never have said pancakes.  I'm an egg eater...turned over medium with toast to be exact.  But this morning, out of the blue, I was craving pancakes.

So I decided to break out of my breakfast box and whip up a batch of fluffy buttermilk pancakes. They were good...really good...and even though eggs will always be my first choice for breakfast these are a close second.

Buttermilk Pancakes

Buttermilk Pancakes
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
3 tablespoons cooking oil
blue berries (optional)
pecans (optional)

In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl use a fork to combine egg, buttermilk, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Add fruit and nuts if using.

Pour 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet, spreading batter if necessary. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown,
