Buttermilk Pancakes

I know there are a lot of Pancake recipes out there but, I am a sucker for Buttermilk Pancakes. They are just so delicious. Not to mention they are versatile but, That is a few other recipes. Right now I am going to share with you my Basic recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes. These Pancakes are Light and Fluffy. I make these a lot for a quick breakfast before School or just whenever. Yea… they are that good. So let’s get started. Here is what you’re going to need:

1 c. Buttermilk

1/4 c. Flour

2 Tbsp. Cornstarch

1 Tbsp. Sugar

2 Tsp. Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp. Salt

2 Eggs, Beaten

1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

4 Tbsp. Butter, Melted


(1.)  In a large Bowl whisk together the Flour, Cornstarch, Sugar, Baking Powder and Salt.  Set aside.

(2.) In a large Measuring cup or bowl beat together the Buttermilk, Vanilla Extract and the Butter with a fork. Using a fork Gently mix in the Buttermilk Mixture into the Flour Mixture until almost but not quite combined. Beat the Eggs in a bowl or cup and add to the Mixture and Stir into the batter mixture until completely combined. There will be a few lumps but that is alright. They will cook into the Batter.

(3.) Now that the Batter is made and ready Heat up a large skillet (or griddle pan) over medium low heat. Add 1 Tbsp Butter and spread around the pan. This helps the Pancakes not stick to the pan or griddle. When the pan is hot the ladle on One ladle full of the Batter at a time to make 2 or 3 Pancakes in the pan Or however many that will fit in the pan. Now let them cook for 2 or 3 minutes on each side. When Bubble appear and the sides of the Pancakes look set then they are ready to flip. Slide your spatula underneath the pancakes and in one fail swoop Flip them over. Do not press down on the Pancakes or they will not be Fluffy like we want them. Let them cook another 2 or 3 minutes so the middle of the pancakes will set and cook through. When they are cooked through remove them from the pan and onto a plate or platter. Top with a Pat of Butter (1 Tbsp) and your favorite syrup. I like to serve them with a side of fruit such as Bananas or Blueberries.

It is a funny thing how something so simple can be so filling. This recipe makes about 4 to 6 Pancakes depending on how  big you make them.
