Buttermilk Pancakes

This recipe for pancakes Is just a basic recipe.  It makes about 6 to 8 servings depending on how big you make them. They are light, fluffy and delicious. Here is what you will need:


1 1/2 c. Flour

2 Tbsp. Cornstarch

1/4  Tsp. Salt

1 Tbsp. Baking Powder

4 Tbsp. Sugar

1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda

1/2 c. Buttermilk

1 c. plus 3 Tbsp. Milk

1 Egg

1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

Butter for the pan


(1.) In a medium size bowl add the Flour, Cornstarch, Salt, Baking Powder, Sugar and the Baking Soda. Mix together using a fork.

(2.) In a large measuring cup add the Buttermilk, Milk, Egg and the Vanilla and beat together with a fork.  Add to the Flour mixture and stir together with the fork until just mixed. It will be slightly lumpy but don’t over mix as this will make for tough pancakes. The lumps in the mixture will cook out while the pancakes are cooking. Now, If the batter is to thick for your liking then you can add 1 Tbsp of milk at a time until desired consistency is reached.

(3.) Now heat up a griddle pan or a non stick skillet over medium low heat and add in 1 Tbsp of butter and melt.  Ladle in desired amount of batter unto the hot pan and let cook for about 4 minutes or so. When bubbles appear and the top looks slightly set then carefully flip over and continue to cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until completely done in the middle. If you are not sure of this then slide a knife into the center of the pancake and if it comes out clean then it is done. Kind of like a cake. Remove to a plate or platter.


Variations: you can add fruit to this batter. Just chop them into small bite size pieces and mix them into the batter. You can also add white chocolate or chocolate chips as well.
