Recipe Tips:

To turn this into a vegan pancake recipe, substitute 1 1/4 cups water and 1 1/3 cups non-dairy yogurt for the buttermilk and the eggs. Use Earth Balance Buttery Spread or vegetable oil in place of the butter. You may need to lightly oil the pan to prevent sticking.

To turn this into a gluten-free pancake recipe, substitute all-purpose gluten-free flour for the wheat flour. Or use 1/2 cup sorghum flour, 1/2 cup cornstarch, and 1/4 tsp. xantham gum.
