Grandma's Chicken-Killing Pancakes

First I should clarify that this recipe was from my husband's paternal grandmother, whom I never had the chance to meet. At her funeral, family members shared stories about her and handed out this pancake recipe with that title. Apparently one day, she threw some leftover pancakes out for the chickens, and one choked on a piece and died!

I used to make Bisquick pancakes, but now I only do these. I usually do half the recipe, which makes about six large. If I don't have buttermilk on hand, I substitute milk and lemon juice. (Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice to measuring cup, then fill with milk to make one cup liquid.)

Grandma P's Chicken-Killing Pancakes
Mix together:
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt (I usually cut back a little)
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk

Pour on hot griddle and serve with syrup. (Gotta have real maple syrup too!)
