The latest issue of Cook's Illustrated had a recipe for buttermilk pancakes that sounded so good I just had to try it out. So I made them this morning for my family, and they were light, fluffy, and buttery, just exactly the way good pancakes should be. When the kids weren't stuffing their mouths with the pancakes, they were talking about how good they were.
Here, then, is the recipe for anyone who'd like to duplicate it. In the interest of not violating copyright law, I'm copying only the recipe itself, and not the explanation of how it was created. It's pretty interesting, so if you're at all interested, I suggest you buy the issue for yourself.
