Your weekend is about to get a whole lot better with these Buttermilk Pancakes. Get ready to wake up on the right side of the bed and greet the day with this delicious breakfast.
Just imagine this with me. It’s Saturday morning, and the kids are still asleep. You wake up without an alarm and you’re the first one in the kitchen. The coffee pot starts to brew, and the aroma of breakfast comes to life. This sounds pretty great, right? Add in my Buttermilk Pancake recipe and nirvana will be reached. 😉
There’s nothing like a warm homemade fluffy stack of pancakes topped with melted butter and a sea of maple syrup. Growing up we would use a boxed pancake mix, and to be honest, I would use the same to cook for my family. Once I discovered the magical powers of homemade buttermilk my pancake game changed forever.
I can’t make these fast enough on the weekends. My kids will snatch them right off of the griddle as soon as they’re done. I feel like I’m running a small-town diner and I just have to keep the flapjacks coming. I don’t mind though because I love these pancakes just as much as they do! It’ll be hard to go back to a boxed mix once you try this recipe.
WHAT CAN I ADD TO THE PANCAKES?
Try adding chocolate chips, blueberries, or bananas for an easily enhanced pancake.
PRO TIP: Don’t add the extra ingredients to your batter. Instead sprinkle them on top of your pancake after you’ve poured it onto the griddle.
CAN THESE BE MADE GLUTEN FREE?
Yes! Substitute the all-purpose flour for a gluten free flour.
CAN I COOK THEM ON SOMETHING ELSE BESIDES A GRIDDLE?
Absolutely! Use a non-stick pan and your pancakes will come out just the same.

- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 ½ cups buttermilk
- 1/4 cup salted butter melted
- 1/2 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In a separate, medium bowl, beat the 2 large eggs, then slowly add whisk in the buttermilk until blended. Add this wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until combined. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract. Batter will be slightly lumpy and thick.(I let my batter stand for 5 to 10 minutes to let the ingredients settle before making the pancakes. I will also add a Tablespoon or two of milk to thin the batter if it's way too thick.)
- Pour a 1/3 cup of batter onto a hot 350 degree F. (or medium-low heat) buttered griddle. Gently spread out the batter to create a circle shape. Cook on first side until the underside is golden and bubbles appear on the surface. Carefully flip pancake and let cook another minute or until center is fully cooked.
- Serve with syrup, whipped cream, strawberries or whatever you like on your pancakes. Enjoy! ♥

I don’t normally keep buttermilk, but have seen the powdered buttermilk in the cooking aisle. Might have to finally buy that to make these! They look very yummy!
You can easily whip together buttermilk with just milk (1 scant cup) and lemon juice (1 TBSP) OR 2 Teaspoons white vinegar. Just let it sit for about 10 min. and as it starts to thicken you can use it in recipes 🙂
WOW!!!, these looks yummy!
Thanks for sharing
These pancakes look perfectly light and fluffy!
These look perfect to me! YUMMMM
A great tip for making your own buttermilk is to add 1 Tbsp of vinegar to just under one cup of milk. I use Fat Free milk and it works perfectly. Can’t wait to try these! We have pancake Saturdays too!
Nothing like homemade buttermilk pancakes like grandma used to make. One question though. did you mean to say “1/2 cup” of sugar? seems excessive. I’d think more like 1/2 tbls? But maybe it really is 1/2 cup? thank you.
The 1/2 cup sugar is correct. These are sweet and delicious. You can always reduce the amount of sugar if you would like to though. 🙂
would THIS WORK AS A WAFFLE RECIPE, WITH SOME MINOR REVISIONS? I HAVE NEVER CARED FOR THE TEXTURE OF PANCAKES.
I think it would work in a waffle maker, but I would mix in a tablespoon of vegetable oil to the batter first. Let me know if you try it!
