  1. do you think I could make the batter tonight and have ready to throw on the griddle for tomorrow am before school? also, I do not have buttermilk but do have whole milk- would that be ok? thanks!

    1. Yes, you can make the batter up ahead of time. And if you use whole milk add 1 Tablespoon of vinegar for every 1 cup of milk and let it sit for 5 minutes before adding it to the recipe, that will give you buttermilk.

  2. hey hey- thanks for the tip! I may have my son helping me now while our kale chips are cooking:) i thought this would be fun for the valentines day morning.
