I modified this recipe from one I found at AllRecipes a few years ago. These are The Man's favorite pancakes, or panclocks, as he calls them. :) He rarely orders pancakes in restaurants anymore because he says they don't even come close to these!
1 c flour
1 t salt
1 t baking soda
1/2 T sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1 c buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat and lightly grease a large skillet or griddle. (I like to use my 2-burner cast iron griddle for pancakes.)
Mix the flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar together in a bowl. Add the egg, buttermilk, and butter; stir together lightly, but keep it lumpy. Let sit for 5 minutes. The batter should look thick and a bit bubbly.
Drop 1/3 cup of the batter onto the cooking surface, spreading lightly with the bottom of the cup. Cook until lightly-browned on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
