How To Make The Best Buttermilk Pancakes

This Valentine’s Day, my husband and I have decided to steer clear from the grand gift-giving gestures encouraged by the arrival of this consumer holiday. Instead, we have chosen to focus on the immense power that lies in carrying out small acts of love.

Among many small things that he does for me on the daily, nothing screams “I love you” more than the occasional pancake breakfast/brunch surprise. I’ve got to say, when it comes to pancakes, Reggie’s buttermilk pancakes are bar none. I said what I said. 

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, he happily obliged to write/share his recipe on the blog. Keep scrolling for the recipe.
