Fluffy American Buttermilk Pancake

We used to go to Tick Tock Diner every weekend for breakfast/brunch/lunch in a big group when we were in NY a few years ago (graduate training for 3 months), it is just a few blocks behind where we stayed, we always ordered pancakes, talked about all the funny things and exciting busy plans for the weekend. We all have our best memories in NY, even now we are still talking about our silly stories.

I miss the good old days... and the American pancakes! I was searching for places in London that do good American pancakes, none of them is the right texture/flavour :(  I have tried several recipes and I found this prefect fluffy one!
