Yesterday, while welcoming you to our table for breakfast at the farm, I mentioned that I’ve found two winning recipes for breakfast items.
Welcome back into my kitchen today for the recipe reviews!
Do you use buttermilk often in recipes? Does your buttermilk go sour before using all of it? I have a real problem with that. So, I’m always looking for good recipes that call for buttermilk – especially while I have some in the refrigerator that needs to be used, and soon.
With a recent purchase of buttermilk, I made this pancake recipe before the milk went sour. I do have a question, though. Other than judging by the sell by date, do you find it hard to tell when buttermilk goes bad? The smell doesn’t change very much. Hmm…
Recipe Review #1:
I found the buttermilk pancake recipe at Flower Patch Farmhouse. Pamela shares her recipe and the necessary details here. I began my test by making her basic scratch recipe.
Then I got a little crazy with mini chocolate chips…because I love chocolate. Normally.
I have to admit that I’ve never cared for chocolate chip pancakes that much. Even at restaurants. So, why did I bother?
I thought by some miracle, these would taste amazingly delicious with the mini chocolate chips. I’m here to report that my test proved that I still don’t love chocolate chip pancakes. Not the way I’d like to, anyway. Does that make sense? Maybe you like them, at least.
I found Pamela’s buttermilk pancakes to be perfectly and wonderfully delicious! I will continue using Pamela’s recipe for pancakes from here forward. No more Bisquick™ pancakes again. Ever. Done. Thanks, Pamela! 🙂
Recipe Review #2:
This recipe calls for no buttermilk, but while we’re on the subject of chocolate chips (weren’t we?), I want to tell you about this one.
I found a very tasty banana bread recipe loaded with chocolate chips. The name of it is Loaded Banana Bread, and it IS loaded with chocolate chips.
Do you have a problem with banana bread taking longer to cook than the recipe states? I usually have a big problem with that, but not this time.
See how nice and evenly baked this loaf turned out?
Since the recipe made two large bread loaves, we enjoyed one here in The Land of Making Do.
We shared the second loaf with friends.
Visit Cindy at my Healthy Morsels for the banana bread recipe. I made some substitutions – because, we ARE in The Land of Making Do, and I don’t run to the grocery store for every little thing. I substituted the Greek yogurt with sour cream (same quantity), and I used a box of cheesecake pudding mix rather than the vanilla flavor Cindy used. Oh, and I used 1/2 cup of brown sugar rather than 1/4 cup, which Cindy suggested if you like things sweeter (which I do!).
I hope you’ll hop over to these blogs and get their recipes. I think you’ll like them very much! Have a wonderful weekend, y’all. 🙂
Have you tested any recipes lately – maybe from a Pinterest Pin or from another blog? Did you find any winners?
