Gourmet: Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes

Sometimes you just need something homey and warm. Something fluffy and soft and delicious. Something with a golden crunch on the outside. Something smothered in maple syrup. Something like the perfect pancake.

Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes
From Gourmet magazine, May 2004

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk, well shaken

Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, egg, and buttermilk until smooth. Heat a griddle or a large heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot enough to make drops of water scatter over its surface, then brush with oil. Working in batches and using a ¼-cup measure filled halfway, pour batter onto griddle and cook, turning over once, until golden, about 2 minutes per batch.
