Buttermilk Pancakes

Leftover buttermilk (from the goat cheese biscuits)= delicious pancakes on Sunday morning.  Usually I say that these sour cream pancakes are my favorite, but this recipe for buttermilk pancakes was pretty yummy.  They are also very easy to make- no electric beaters required and you can do it all in one bowl so less mess.
Sadly, we discovered that we have no syrup in the apartment!  Instead, we added chocolate chips and sprinkled with powdered sugar.  Not as good as syrup but still tasty.
Buttermilk Pancakes
2 eggs
3 ½ cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
¼ cup melted butter (plus more butter for the pan)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Chocolate chips (optional)
Whisk the eggs and buttermilk, add the baking soda and mix together.  Add the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter, and vanilla.  Stir until just combined- it should still be lumpy!  Over-mixing makes dense pancakes. 
Cook them on the stove (cast iron griddles yield the best results).  Sprinkle on chocolate chips while they cook if you love chocolate as much as I do.  This makes a lot of batter- it will keep covered in the fridge for 2-3 days.
