here you go, not only home made buttermilk for you pancakes, but home made 
butter and homemade maple syrup to to top them off. enjoy!!!. 
homemade buttermilk 
  heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp  salt (optional, see below)
this is soooo easy!! get a large container of heavy whipping cream or as 
much as your mixing bowl can safely hold. let it sit out at room 
temperature overnight or outside in the sun for 3-4 hours. using a kitchen 
aid type mixer, pour it into the mixer bowl with the flat beater, not the 
dough hook. start it on a medium low speed for 2-3 minutes, then turn it 
up to medium high. soon you will hear it start to slosh,that means the 
milk is separating from the butter (instant homemade buttermilk!). you 
don't want it splashing all over the kitchen, so pour as much of the 
buttermilk out into a container for later use and continue on medium high 
speed until it's done separating. again, pour as much of the milk out as 
you can. take a spatula and put the fresh butter in a butter mold or tub 
type container, allowing any milk or air to drain out. 
note: most folks don't like added salt, but you can if you desire. if you 
do, keep in mind that if you taste it right after you add it, the butter 
will taste extremely salty. so let it rest for a few hours and it will 
mellow out tremendously.
