Truck Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

I have been using this pancake recipe for several years and it's a great stand-by. The original recipe makes a ton of pancakes, so the recipe I use is scaled down quite a bit. The pancakes always turn out wonderful and we all enjoy them. Breakfast for dinner is one of our favorite meals!

(adapted from allrecipes.com)

2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
2 Tbsp. sugar

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, butter and buttermilk. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Mix well. Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Stir gently until most clumps are gone. Add more buttermilk or flour, depending on how you like the thickness of your batter. Cook on a hot griddle (greased or ungreased...however you usually make pancakes) until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip and cook until other side is golden brown.
