Buttermilk Pancakes

This amazing showstopper of a dessert is perfect in any weather for a more casual dining experience. I wouldn't server as a five star option but anything under five star and it's perfect!

2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups sour cream
2 large eggs
4 tsp vanilla extract (not essence)

1. Whisk ingredients from flour to salt in one bowl
2. Mix remaining ingredients separately in another bowl
3. Combine two mixtures well
4. Fry in butter/oil hot mix in pan to create thick cakes.
5. Add berries reduced with water and sugar as sauce, and good quality vanilla bean ice cream or similar for perfect dessert.
