Buttermilk Pancakes

We love a good breakfast for dinner around here! I found these on this bog ( ) I stumbled on one day, and we tried them today and they are SO good. The only bad part is buttermilk is not always something I have on hand in the fridge, so pancakes will have to become more of a planned meal in the future. Also, we add in choc chips for Brian and the kids, but I like mine normal. The website also looks like it has some good easy Chinese chicken recipes that I plan to try soon.
Buttermilk Pancakes
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons butter
½ teaspoons vanilla extract
oil or cooking spray (for cooking)

Cooking Instructions:
Step 1
: In a large bowl beat eggs. Add buttermilk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until smooth and let batter set for a few minutes.
Step 2: Heat griddle or pan over medium heat. Brush lightly with oil or spray with cooking spray. You can test to see if the pan is hot enough by adding a few drops of water, if or when the drops start to dance its hot enough.
Step 3: Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle. Cook on the first side until bubbles that form start to pop. You can also gently lift up the pancake to make sure the bottom is not overcooking, if it is the pan may be too hot and you will need to adjust the heat. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is gone.

Kristy when my mom didn't have buttermilk she use to add a little lemon juice to milk. You should try that. Does anyone else do that?
