Buttermilk pancakes

Prep 15 min
Total 25 min
Makes 12



2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/4 cup
granulated sugar
1 tsp
1 tsp
2 cups
1/2 cup
unsalted butter, melted
2 tsp
maple syrup, optional
berries, optional


  • WHISK flour with sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk with butter, eggs and vanilla in a medium bowl. Scrape buttermilk mixture into flour mixture. Whisk until batter is just combined. It will be lumpy.
  • HEAT a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Spray with oil. Pour 1/3 cup batter into pan. If the pan is big enough, add more 1/3-cup portions of batter. Cook until bubbles form on top of each pancake and edges begin to brown, 2 to 4 min. Using a wide spatula, flip and continue cooking until the bottoms of pancakes are golden, 2 to 3 min. Don’t press or they will become tough. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with berries and maple syrup.

Kitchen tip: All out of buttermilk? Mix 2 tbsp lemon juice into 2 cups milk and let stand 10 min. You can reduce or omit the sugar in this recipe if desired.
