Buttermilk Pancakes

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Author Holly


  • 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! ♥
