I've always loved leftovers, which I'm sure you've noticed if you've been following along. But when I make pancakes I inevitably eat a few while cooking them and then just freeze what's left. So I eat maybe three or four and then save twice that. They taste almost as good when you microwave them, but still - fresh off the griddle is ALWAYS better.
I was determined to use some more of my Louisiana cornmeal so I made the cakes. I had to take pictures because I have never - NEVER - not burned the first batch. And just look!

I used gigi's Batter Cakes recipe and made some changes.
I used powdered buttermilk (from the infamous pantry) and thought it was neat, all frothy like that.
The batter was WAY too runny. Perhaps you should only use 1/2 cup of buttermilk instead of a full cup? My envelope of powdered buttermilk made a cup's worth so I used the whole thing, but I had to add 2/3 cup of flour like someone suggested in the comments.
The directions say to pour on the griddle in "heaping tablespoonfuls." Ain't no way you could make a heaping tablespoonful out of that runny mess above.
The recipe said it made ten servings but I got a dozen small pancakes out of the batch. So unless the servings are... no, I don't even want to try to solve that. I have no idea what the serving size is supposed to be. One pancake? Oh well.
Mm... they even taste good out of the microwave...
