For the Mini Pancakes:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Toppings:
- 1/2 cup granola (your favorite variety)
- Fresh berries (e.g., strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
- Honey or maple syrup for drizzling
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
- Preheat a non-stick 9.5-inch DiamoTech fry pan over medium-low heat. Lightly grease it with butter or cooking spray.
- Using a tablespoon or a small ladle, scoop small portions of batter onto the pan to make mini pancakes. You can make them as small as you like, but keep them about 2-3 inches in diameter.
- Cook the pancakes for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
- Once cooked, remove the mini pancakes from the pan and place them on a serving plate.
- Top each mini pancake with a spoonful of granola and some fresh berries.
- Drizzle honey or maple syrup over the top for extra sweetness if desired.
