What's up Wednesday--buttermilk pancakes

This is my mom's buttermilk pancake recipe, and they are sooooo good!  Last week everyone had Monday off--our final day of the holidays--so Ben and Mr J made us these pancakes for breakfast.  Divine!  You have to use real buttermilk, though.  Substitutes just don't cut it for this recipe.  They freeze really well.  We usually double the recipe so we have extras to heat up for breakfast on busy mornings.  Enjoy!
Buttermilk pancakes

Beat together:
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
4 Tab oil

In another bowl mix together:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 Tab sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 scant tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients with mixed liquid ingredients with a wire whisk.  Add more buttermilk if mixture is too thick, but try to keep it pretty thick.  Drop by 1/4 cup on hot, lightly greased griddle.  Bake on one side until bubbles appear, turn and cook until done on other.

Enjoy with butter and syrup or whatever you like on pancakes--peanut butter, nutella, applesauce, jam--a few of our favorites :)
