Buttermilk Pancakes
Forget about the box mixes, be adventurous and make homemade buttermilk pancakes! There are literally tons of different ways to make pancakes but you can’t go wrong with the classic buttermilk. Buttermilk pancakes are some of the lightest and fluffiest pancakes you will ever eat and they are so delicious. If you have never cooked pancakes before don’t let the process intimidate you, making pancakes are very easy and in no time at all, you will be a pro at it. You want the pancakes to cook rather slowly so they don’t burn (black pancakes don’t taste very good
J) and so they are cooked all the way through without burning the outside. The process is simple, basically mix the batter, pour and flip. If you’re looking for a fast and delicious breakfast this recipe is for you, and after all, what would breakfast be without pancakes?

Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

  • Author: Bobby


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • oil or cooking spray (for cooking)


  1. In a large bowl beat eggs. Add buttermilk, butter, and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until smooth and let the batter sit for a few minutes.
  2. Heat griddle or pan over medium heat. Brush lightly with oil or spray with cooking spray. You can test to see if the pan is hot enough by adding a few drops of water, if or when the drops start to dance its hot enough.
  3. Pour a ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle. Cook on the first side until bubbles that from start to pop. You can also gently lift up the pancake to make sure the bottom is not overcooking if it is the pan may be too hot and you will need to adjust the heat. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is gone.

    Bobby my mouth is watering. I feel like getting up and making some pancakes but the problem is that we don’t get any buttermilk. Can this be substituted by heavy cream?

  2. Bobby says:

    grace – haha, thanks! These pancakes were great.

    Ivy – Thanks! These pancakes were great. Nope, Sorry. Buttermilk and heavycream are very different and they would not have the same flavor at all.

    Larissa – Thank you!

    These pancakes were just yummy, my family loved them. You eat more than you would w/ other pancakes. They don’t feel as filling. When I pull them off the griddle they are very fluffy, but while in the pile waiting to be eaten, the fluff seems to defluff, I don’t flip them til the bubbles are gone & they look absolutely gorgeous.
    I’m sure its a cooks error, but that never changes the flavor. Buttermilk pancakes blow all the others away. Thanks for sharing Bobby.

    These were the best buttermilk pancakes I have ever made. Not too thin,and not to thick just perfect! Reminded me of restaurant style. My husband wanted me to say, “tell them you made it for you amazing and sexy husband for fathers day and that he thought they (the pancakes) were amazing and sexy.” lol they really were that good!

    A substitute for buttermilk can be made by pouring 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice into a 1 cup measuring cup and filling it up with milk. Let stand for 5-10 minutes, It should look a little chunky and curdled. Happy Baking!
