In Stacked, FWx contributor Dennis Prescott concocts recipes to back up his motto: If we are fortunate enough to eat three meals a day, why not make them as delicious as possible?

I view pancakes like I view bread. A starting point. A foundation to be built on. Sure, a pancake with some butter and maple syrup is delicious. But let’s push the envelope.

The world really is your oyster here. You could top these with fresh fruit, pulled pork, blueberry compote, oysters...I may not rock the oyster one, but the possibilities are endless.

Maple Buttermilk Pancakes

Serves 4

  • 2½ cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons maple sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking power
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat the oven to 250°.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, maple sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the eggs, buttermilk, maple syrup and melted butter, and combine until the batter is smooth.

Preheat a pan on medium high. Spray with cooking spray and ladle in ¼ cup–size dollops of the batter. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, flipping when bubbles form on the top of the pancakes. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes on the other side.

Place finished pancakes in the oven to keep warm until serving.
