Pancake recipe from Alton Brown.
You can definitely scale the recipe. I recommend this many if you're cooking for one person with limited self-control around pancakes, or if you want to feed 4 but don't want any leftovers, but my family will double it and keep them for breakfasts all week. Feel free to double the pineapple orange salad, too; I like a generous helping on my pancakes.
Would not recommend using coconut oil in place of the butter. It doesn't add any coconut flavor, and the texture was funky when I used it.
Would not recommend subbing in coconut milk for the buttermilk. I’ve found that 1) it doesn’t add that much coconut flavor, and 2) the texture of the pancakes seems wetter, which I don’t love.
