Buttermilk Pancakes

Buttermilk Pancakes

You don't have to go to a local diner to get the best homemade pancakes!! You can make them in your kitchen with this secret recipe of mine. Either make them plain or with whatever mix-in you want (blueberries, chocolate chips, bananas, exc).



18 pancakes
  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. 3 tbs granulated sugar
  3. 1 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 tsp baking soda
  5. pinch salt
  6. 2 tbs butter, melted
  7. 4 eggs, yolks and white separated
  8. 2 cups buttermilk
  9. 1 tbs granulated sugar
  10. non-stick spray
  11. blueberries, bananas, maple syrup, exc


  1. Change

    To make the dry mix: sift the flour into a medium bowl. Add the 3 tbs of sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Set aside.

  2. Add Photo

    Melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds and let it cool for about 10 minutes.

  3. Add Photo

    Crack the eggs and seperate the yolks in a small bowl and the whites in a larger one (you will be adding all ingredients in this bowl later on).

  4. Add Photo

    Whisk the eggs until fluffy and then add the buttermilk and mix together.

  5. Add Photo

    In the smaller bowl blend the yolks together and add the room temp butter along with the 1 tablespoon of sugar.

  6. Add Photo

    Add the yolk mixture to the egg whites mixture until fully combined. Then slowly mix in the dry mix until all the clumps disappear. DO NOT OVER MIX. Refridgerate for 10 minutes.

  7. Change

    During the 10 minutes of waiting, turn on your skillet to let it heat up. I always turn it up to about 300 to 350 degrees but sometimes I turn it down if the pancakes are getting brown too fast. Up to you.

  8. Change

    If you want any mix-ins now is the time to prepare them. For bananas slice them up really small and either mix them into the batter or hand place them on the cake immediately after put on the griddle (same for chocolate chips). As for blueberries I like to dress mine with flour and then add them to the batter. Use the photo for reference.

  9. Change

    Once the 10 min are up spray a good amount of non-stick spray onto the skillet. Grab a large spoon or a mashed potato scooper and spoon a cookie-sized portion of the batter onto the griddle (now would be when you place the chocolate chips or any mix-in you like). Cook until you see bubbles forming in the middle and then flip once.

  10. Change

    Top with more mix-ins, butter, or syrup. You can keep them warm if you heat your oven to 200 degrees and let them sit in there until someone is ready to eat em. Enjoy!
