The Best Buttermilk Pancakes With Mascarpone Whipped Cream
This is a delicious brunch entree that is sure to please the whole room! The classic pancakes are a perfect combination of fluffy and crisp: By using buttermilk, the pancakes are easy to rise and creamy to boot. Fresh berries make things feel even more like spring on a sunny morning!
Make sure to fry the batch in a hot pan of butter for that ultimate rich taste and slight crunchy exterior. A sweet, thick, and creamy mascarpone-based topping is the perfect contrast to those crispy edges.
