Hey Hey! Happy Monday! I think pancakes are the most absolute perfect recipe for a Monday ’cause on this day we still wish it was Sunday, and nothing feels more like a Sunday than a tall stack of soft, fluffy, pillowy pancakes. Talk about a forever long sentence, eh? Just trying to get all my thoughts in there, that’s all. Gah.

Do you know that people really like a boxed mix to make buttermilk pancakes? That’s ludicrous! And, while many resort to pancake mix when making a special weekend breakfast, honestly homemade pancakes are a must. The batter takes just as long to make as a boxed mix – really, it does! – and the result is INFINITELY BETTER.

You know what I’ve learned? I’ll tell you. Making the best ever pancakes is an exercise lesson in patience. There may have been struggles with burned bottoms and doughy interiors in my experiences, but iz all good… all good things take time to learn and time to perfect.

As long as I’m talking about experiences, here’s what I’ve learned about making better buttermilk pancakes:

HOW TO MAKE PERFECT PANCAKES

  • Have ingredients at room temperature.
  • Use a heavy nonstick griddle or cast-iron skillet for even heat distribution. <<< super important
  • Heat griddle or pan over medium heat until a drop of water skitters across the surface.
  • Lightly grease the pan with oil or clarified butter. <<< mucho importante! Regular butter will burn.
  • Use a measuring cup to evenly portion out the batter.
  • Turn over the pancake when it’s dry around the edges and bubbles have formed over the top and popped.
  • If your pancake is burned on the outside and raw on the inside, turn down the heat.
  • I always throw out the first 2, maybe even 3 pancakes, while trying to find the perfect cooking temperature. <<< my truth.

Now that you have all the ins and outs that I’VE learned, please leave a comment and let me know your best tips for the perfect pancakes!

ENJOY!

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: breakfast pancakes, buttermilk pancakes, pancake recipes
Servings: 4 Serves
Calories: 440 kcal
Ingredients
  • 2 large eggs , room temperature
  • 2 cups low fat buttermilk , room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons butter , melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour OR all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil , clarified butter, or you can also use nonstick cooking spray
Instructions
  1. In your mixer's bowl beat eggs on medium speed until frothy.
  2. Add buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla; continue to beat until just blended. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; whisk until thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the buttermilk mixture and, using a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula, mix just enough to combine; batter should be creamy, but lumpy. DO NOT OVERMIX.
  5. Allow batter to rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet or griddle over high heat.
  7. Lightly grease the skillet with oil or nonstick cooking spray.
  8. Lower heat to medium-high and pour about 1/4 cup batter into skillet for each pancake - make sure there is enough space between the pancakes because they will expand during cooking.
  9. Cook pancakes for about 2 minutes, or until batter is set and bubbles cover the top while the bottom is golden brown. If the pancakes are cooking too fast on the outside, but still doughy on the inside, lower the heat to a medium.
  10. Flip pancakes and continue to cook for 1 minute, or until golden brown on the bottom.
  11. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil to pan as necessary.
  12. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes
  • Serve with spreads, jams, butter, maple syrup, strawberry syrup, fruit compotes, etc.

    Hi! Pancakes look great. I am trying to convert to WW points, so I notice you don’t have points listed or the the number of servings. How many pancakes does this recipe make?

  2. German potato pancakes are a real treat and something Germans miss when they move away. Eating freshly made potato pancakes with applesauce in the out-of-doors at a weekly market or carneval is a wonderful way to do indulge,

  3. YUM! I’m a sucker for homemade pancakes, and I can see us making these this weekend as a special treat. And adding peanut butter? One of my favorite options for pancakes! I’d never tried those as a kid until I went on a choir tour, and our host family introduced us to it. It’s soooooooo good!

  4. K: personal requet – I’m having a party for 14 DO YOU HAVE A RECIPE FOR GREEK MEATBALLS OR RECIPE FOR GYROS
    GYROS COST TOO MUCH TO GET AT MY GREEK SHOP AND I THING I CAN MAKE A GOOD SUBSTITUTE.
    THANKS
