"Aspiring to a soufflé, he achieves a pancake at which the reader saws without much appetite."
-John Leonard, Author
This healthy recipe was originally created using sugar and eggs. I was experimenting one morning with Splenda and egg substitute and didn’t expect the changes to make a better pancake but they do. The pancakes are lighter and fluffier.
If you are caught without any buttermilk you can make it easily by using 1 cup of skim milk and a tablespoon of any acid. Using white vinegar or lemon juice will work and these add more tartness. Using a tablespoon of cream of tartar will work as well and this will not be quite as acidic.

Leftover pancakes aren’t very good. The batter will keep overnight but the pancakes will not be as good.
|2/3 cup||all purpose white flour|
|1 Tbsp||Splenda or stevia|
|1 tsp||baking powder|
|2/3 cup||non-fat buttermilk|
|1 tsp||pure vanilla extract|
|1 Tbsp||(per serving) unsalted butter|
|1 Tbsp||(per serving) pure maple syrup|
Sift flour, Splenda and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
Add buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract and blend using a large whisk until smooth.
Heat a non-stick griddle over medium-high heat. Let the batter stand for at least 2 minutes while the griddle is heating. Stir once and wait another minute before placing batter on the griddle.
When the griddle is hot enough that a few drops of water will dance on the surface, reduce the heat to medium and place about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake on the griddle.
Allow to cook for another 1 - 2 minutes until bubbles form on the surface and burst. Turn pancake and cook for about 1/2 the time of the first side until they are golden brown.
Remove and top with one teaspoon of Promise Buttery Spread Light on each pancake and serve one tablespoon of pure maple syrup for every two pancakes.
Serving size = 2 pancakes (without fruit), 2 tsp. Promise Buttery Spread Light, 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
