Robie’s Buttermilk Flapjacks aka The Best Pancakes on the Planet

These are served at Robie’s Country Store in Hooksett, NH. Who would’ve thought a country store would have amazing pancakes? It’s a historical landmark and has been around since 1887.So, on to the recipe, as posted at–from the Saveur 100. We doubled the recipe, because there are 6 of us.

2 cups    flour
2 Tbs    granulated sugar
4 tsp    baking powder
1 tsp    baking soda
1 tsp    fine salt
2 cups    buttermilk
4 Tbs    melted butter
1 tsp    vanilla extract
2    beaten eggs

1. Put flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl and whisk to combine; set aside.

2. Whisk together buttermilk, butter, vanilla, and eggs in a medium bowl. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and whisk together until just combined to make a thick batter. (For tenderer flapjacks, don’t overmix the batter.)

3. Heat an 8″ nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp. butter and heat until the butter’s foam subsides. Ladle in about 1⁄2 cup of the batter. Cook the flapjack, turning once, until deep golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes total.

4. Transfer to a large plate; keep warm. Repeat process with additional butter and remaining batter to make 8 flapjacks in all. Serve hot, topped with butter and maple syrup and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar.
