2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1½ teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground sage
11/2 teaspoon sage leaves
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs , beaten
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 Tablespoons milk , to thin out the batter
Heat griddle to 350 degrees F (or heat a large skillet to medium). Grease with butter or non-stick cooking spray.
Combine dry ingredients in large bowl: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, sage leaves, ground sage, salt.
Add buttermilk, eggs and melted butter and mix just until wet and dry ingredients are incorporated. You don't want to over-mix the batter.
Add milk, a little at a time until batter is still thick, but pourable.
Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop batter and pour on hot griddle. Cook pancakes until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip once.
enjoy with warm maple syrup!
