How to Make Buttermilk Pancakes from Scratch

You Can Eat Breakfast For Dinner

My kids just love breakfast for dinner. It’s quicker to prepare than a typical dinner,  and it changes up a routine.

This recipe for buttermilk pancakes is so easy. I bet you have everything in your pantry so there is no need for a boxed mix. The recipe can be simply increased for a bunch of hungry people you are feeding. My personal largest recipe was 25 times which fed about 100+ at the USO (United Service Organization) Spouse Breakfast at Ft Meade.

Ms Victoria’s advice for “start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it”- Proverbs 22:6.

  1. Teach them God’s word. It could be instilling verses while you’re cooking, bible stories at bedtime or even when sharing a meal together.
  2. Don’t set high expectations for your children.
  3. Your children see you do things. Use actions of your faith to teach them how to love and help others.
  4. ALWAYS point them to Christ.

Use breakfast time for Breakfast and Bible and instill these practices in you and your families everyday life.
