Despite what its name might lead you to believe, buttermilk is actually low in fat and calories. Made from cultured nonfat or low-fat milk, this particular liquid adds a tangy flavor and tender, flaky texture, making it an ideal ingredient in any attempt to create a perfect pancake. Open 24 hours a day, Gingham's Restaurant in South County is aware of this fact and serves their pancakes, made from their own special recipe, all day long. Patrons in the mood for breakfast before sunrise or long after dusk can get them served plain with their choice of syrup, or covered with toppings, or even dollar-size. Gingham's full menu include standard breakfast items, as well as sandwiches, burgers and hearty entree items, such as country fried steak and spaghetti and meatballs.
