BEST BUTTERMILK PANCAKES

I am pretty sure I grew up on a steady diet of pancakes.

I strongly believe that pancakes are a necessity on the weekends! My kids look forward to their Saturday or Sunday morning homemade pancakes.

But one thing is for sure….not all pancakes are created equal. Maybe you’ve eaten hockey pucks before that were supposed to resemble pancakes. Pancakes just taste better from scratch.

What ingredients are in Buttermilk Pancakes?

The best buttermilk pancakes are made with fresh buttermilk, eggs, a touch of sugar, butter, flour, and baking powder. It’s the ratio that counts and buttermilk is the big difference maker in the best buttermilk pancakes ever. These homemade buttermilk pancakes just melt in your mouth!

A pancake has to be fluffy yet tender. That’s not an easy feat. You don’t want it to be so thick and cakey that you think you are eating a piece of bread. A soft and tender pancake is made by using a higher ratio of buttermilk to flour. Buttermilk is a saint in the baking world!

A mix of baking powder and baking soda gives the buttermilk pancakes a nice rise. The melted butter gives it flavor and you can even eat these plain because they are that good.

Placing a pat on warm butter on a skillet before pouring the pancake batter onto the pan, gives the pancake a buttery crust. It is so heavenly! This is the skillet that we use because it fits 6-8 pancakes on it at once so it takes less time — Presto Electric Griddle

Goldie's Best Buttermilk Pancakes

By: Melissa Stadler, Modern Honey
Fluffy, soft, and tender buttermilk pancakes. A family favorite!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 16

Equipment

  • presto electric griddle
  • wolf electric griddle
  • mixing bowl set
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • turner
  • whisk

Ingredients  

  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 4 cups Buttermilk (may use up to 4 1/2 cups of buttermilk if you want thinner pancakes)
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter melted

Instructions 

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar, and stir until combined. Add eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter and whisk to combine. The batter should have some lumps. Embrace the pancake batter lumps.
  • Heat skillet over medium-low heat. Test for readiness by sprinkling some water on a pan and if it spatters off the griddle, it's hot enough.
  • Coat with butter or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Using a 1/2 cup, pour pancake batter onto pan.
  • When bubbles appear on top of the pancake, flip to cook the other side. Watch carefully as pancakes can brown quickly. Keep it at a lower heat to ensure that the inside gets cooked through without the outside getting too brown. Serve warm.
  • Top with strawberries, bananas, berries, whipped cream, and real maple syrup.

    My family loves these pancakes. Sometimes we add blueberries….so good. I like the suggestion about adding vanilla….that extra flavor makes them even better. I try to be patient and get the grill just right….lots of butter on the grill gives them even more flavor. Yum!

  2. Great recipe! Next time; however, I would love to add a little vanilla to take it up to even another notch. Thank you Melissa!

    We made these for company on our new Blackstone Griddle…fabulous recipe! Cooked fast and the flavor was amazing and even my husband commented on how fluffy they were! A huge hit! Thank you, Melissa, for another super recipe!

    Thank you, Melissa, for this recipe. I made them and every of them one I served disappeared fast! Now it’s every weekend request!

  5. These pancakes took a LONG time to cook. I have little kids and I was in the kitchen for over an hr cooking these. The pancakes were good but I’ve had plenty of other recipes that are just as good and don’t take nearly as long to cook.

    1. Hi, Chelsea. The issue might be the skillet or pan that you are using? It has to be really hot. We just made them this morning and used a pancake maker. They cooked super fast and tasted amazing!
