I use my sure fire Betty Crocker recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes on the weekends. They taste just like Bisquick pancakes without the added preservatives: Buttermilk Pancakes 1 egg 1 cup all-purpose flour* 1 cup buttermilk 1 tablespoon sugar 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 3 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt Beat egg until fluffy; beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth. Cook pancakes on hot griddle until puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook other side until golden brown. Makes nine 4" pancakes. *If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt. Apple Cider Syrup 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 cup apple cider 2 tablespoons butter 1 apple peeled and chopped In medium sauce pan over medium heat combine first 5 ingredients. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils for 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter and apples. Makes about 2 cups Orange Butter 1 cup butter, softened 2 teaspoons finely shredded orange peel 2 tablespoons orange juice In small bowl, beat butter, orange peel, and juice until well blended. Refrigerate to chill.
