Buttermilk Pancakes April 21, 2012


When I posted the Chicken Fried Steak recipe..I told you would share other recipes with buttermilk. The first is buttermilk pancakes!

For the longest time I’ve kept Bisquick mix in my cabinets, and used it maybe once a week for biscuits, pancakes, or an easy ground beef meal. But then I ran out…and had to make pancakes from scratch. I have no clue why I wasn’t doing this to begin with. You can really tell a difference, and it’s not that difficult. Plus, any leftovers I have, I freeze and can microwave for a morning that we are too hungry to wait!

Buttermilk Pancakes

From Allrecipes.com

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a separate bowl beat together buttermilk, milk, eggs, and butter. Wait to mix the wet and dry ingredients until you are ready to start cooking.
  2. Heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium/high heat.
  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, and use a fork or wooden spoon to blend. Be careful not to over mix.
  4. Pour about 1/2 cup of mix into the heated frying pan. When you start to see little bubbles coming up in the pancake, it’s time to flip it..a minute or so. Brown on both sides, and serve.

A few notes: Do no overmix…it will make take away from the fluffiness (if that’s a word). I noticed in my batter, there were still lumps, but once you cook the pancakes they disappear, so don’t worry about them.

Also..this recipe makes A LOT. I halved it..and it still fed Paige, Brandon and I for two days. While making this yesterday, I halved the flour, got distracted..and continuted adding the ingredients. I didn’t notice I was adding the complete serving amounts until I got to the buttermilk. Don’t do this 🙂

 

Enjoy!

  1. Those look great – there’s nothing like a hefty stack of pancakes in the morning, I adore buttermilk pancakes – I think they are the best.

    My bunch love pancakes. They are so versatile. You can change them up by adding chocolate chips or fresh berries. I even like to put in a cup of cottage cheese and sour cream or yogart for added protein instead of the buttermilk. I also make a big container of the dry ingredients and keep it in a plastic container so that I can make up a batch at any time without all of the measuring, like store bought mix. I’ve written the recipe on a card and have it taped to my container so that I know what it is and how to make it again. when you have leftover cakes, you can pop them in the toaster to warm them up again. yummm

  3. Yum! Can’t wait to try this recipe!
