Pancakes are happy food. When I was about nine years old, I compiled all my favorite brunch recipes together into a book and stuck it to the kitchen cork board with a thumbtack as a not-so-subtle reminder to my parents what I wanted when the sun rose on Saturday morning. That book is long gone and I didn’t think to save the file so for this post I am linking someone else’s Dad’s Buttermilk Pancake recipe (thanks, L.V. Anderson). This photo may look familiar from my Shrove Tuesday post earlier this year.
Because I live in Ireland, I am going to now tell you where you can find a true American buttermilk pancake in the Republic. This is a partial list and one I will add to over time so if you know of a place I’ve overlooked or don’t know about, please add a comment.
There are many options for Brunch in Cork, if you’re interested in a meal including but not limited to pancakes.

37 on Dawson St. does them, as do Herbstreet on Hanover Quay (thanks to @sherqui via Twitter)
