I'm on a pancake cooking spree, and I've been trying a variety of recipes. Today for instance I made banana grain pancakes(my own homemade recipe). Tomorrow morning I was thinking of cooking regular good old fashioned fluffy buttermilk and I've concocted a recipe that I think will be good, but I'm wondering which will be better in this particular recipe, butter or vegetable oil. I always come across pancake recipes which call for either oil or butter and I wonder which one taste better. I've always made pancakes with butter.

I got rid of my last box of bisquick some months ago when I realized how much fluffier my pancakes are when made from scratch but I've yet to make them with buttermilk. Buttermilk is just not something I have much use for. All I can think of using it for is pancakes and fried chicken. Butter is my choice for pancakes-never oil and love fresh fruit cooked in my pancakes. yummy

As I posted in another thread recently, real buttermilk is milk that has had the butter removed, and it's a tangy cultured product, in which the lactic acid chemically changes the batter for pancakes and the dough for biscuits in a way that makes them turn out fluffier and lighter. The imitation buttermilk sold in most dairy cases is not nearly as wonderful.

Using butter in the recipe will give them more of a butter taste, natch.
