1 1/3 cups of buttermilk
3 tblsps hot vegetable oil
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees while heating the well oiled skillet over medium heat. When the oven is ready, mix all ingredients; add the buttermilk to make a rather thin, but not watery batter. Pour the batter into the skillet, place in the oven, and cook until golden brown (usually 20-30 minutes).
If you use regular milk, add 2 tsp baking powder.
Mix all dry ingredients before adding liquids.
