My family loves when I make buttermilk pancakes. I have tried so many recipes over the years and the recipe that I make now, I think is the best of both worlds. Sweet, because of the buttermilk. Fluffy and a bit crispy. Perfect!

buttermilk pancakes



  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp butter – melted
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla


For buttermilk pancakes, first mix the dry ingredients together. That is the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix the wet ingredients together in another bowl. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet. I heat my electric skillet to 350 degrees. Pour 1/2 to 1 cup onto skillet. Wait until you see bubbles and flip the buttermilk pancake. Repeat until done. This recipe makes about 14 decent sized pancakes.
