  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2-1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • SYRUP:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Combine eggs, buttermilk and oil; blend into dry ingredients.
  2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Cook until the second side is golden brown. Roll each pancake around a sausage link.
