Grandpa’s Buttermilk Merengues (Pancakes)

This is a family recipe originating from my grandpa. He always made these at every family get together I can remember. They are light and fluffy and delicious and on our most recent get together my dad announced that he thinks they should have the word Meringue in the title since you have to whip the egg whites. From henceforth, in our immediate family they will be known as:

Buttermilk Merengues
(said like the dance...)

Mix in pitcher:
3 c. flour
1 T baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
3 T sugar
Make a well—stir in
3 c. buttermilk
2 eggs
½ cube margarine, melted
Cook at 375 degree griddle (HOT), makes 24 4” pancakes

Make sure to make it with this delicious

Buttermilk Syrup
½ C buttermilk
1 C sugar
½ C margarine
½ t soda
1 t vanilla

Bring buttermilk, sugar and margarine to a boil. Remove from heat and add soda and vanilla. Stir. The mixture will become very bubbly. Serve immediately.
Note: This syrup does not store well.
