The Best Buttermilk Pancakes

I used to buy a buttermilk pancake mix that was incredibly good, but starting about a year ago, I couldn't find it in stores anymore. After trying different mixes that just didn't match up, I found a Martha Stewart Recipe that claimed to be "the best", so I had to try them. Sure enough-they totally rock and we make them all the time(the kids and I like chocolate chips in ours)!!

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1/2 teaspoon for griddle
Blueberries, chocolate chips, etc for mixing in(optional)

Heat griddle to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons butter; whisk to combine. Batter should have small to medium lumps. We made a few plain ones for my husband and then add in blueberries or chocolate chips for me and the kids!

Heat oven to 175 degrees. Test griddle by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If water bounces and spatters off griddle, it is hot enough. Using a pastry brush, brush remaining 1/2 teaspoon of butter or reserved bacon fat onto griddle(we spray with Pam). Wipe off excess.

Using a 4-ounce ladle, about 1/2 cup, pour pancake batter, in pools 2 inches away from one other(we just pour out of the bowl until they are the size we want). When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.

Repeat with remaining batter, keeping finished pancakes on a heatproof plate in oven. Serve warm.

This recipe makes a lot of pancakes. We often half the recipe for our family of four. If we want extras to heat up for the kids during the week, then we'll make the full recipe. Enjoy!

Those sound so good! We almost always make our pancakes from a mix...I don't know why I never thought about making them from scratch:)

That's basically my recipe, but mine aren't buttermilk. I mix up a TON of the dry stuff ahead of time, then I just measure out 2 cups and all the wet stuff and make it that way. It saves lots of steps for me! said...

Yummy, Now I really would like some pancakes. Mine never turn out. Maybe I can get my mom on board to make me some .

We eat pancakes for dinner all the time. We love banana walnut ones and strawberry banana ones too. We never try chocolate chip though.

BTW Evan is so cute in that picture. He's getting so big!

Yummy recipe here. Can't wait to try this out myself. And the boy Evan is so cute with his let-us-make-and-eat-that-pancake look..

These look wonderful. I have never tried anything but the mix.

Those look GOOD!

I am partial to blueberries and bananas in my pancakes, but I can never get bananas right...they always get too mushy.

Tired Mom Tésa said...

These look so good and so easy! My kids love pancakes, so I'll definitely give these a try.

Robin said...

I have to try these they look amazing! I might sub out a few things that fit our family's diet like using whole wheat flour but... I bet they turn out just as good. I'll let you know! Thanks!

I LOVE homemade pancakes. My mom used to make them all the time. I'm a lazy cook and buy the box mix (lol!). Your pancakes look delicious! You can't go wrong with Martha Stewart. Good idea to add chocolate chips to the mix. I may have to give this recipe a try. Thanks for sharing :)

This reminds me of camping when I was a kid. Getting up early in the morning and starting a fire, making the batter and cooking up a bunch of cakes...

This looks really GOOD!
