Buttermilk Pancakes

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Buttermilk Pancakes are so easy and inexpensive. This excellent recipe is perfect; top with powdered sugar and fruit or maple syrup.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 4 minutes

Total Time: 14 minutes

Yield: Makes about 6-8 pancakes


  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • Solid shortening for pan


Sift all the dry ingredients into a large bowl. In small saucepan, combine buttermilk and butter; heat over low heat just until butter starts to melt; stir and remove from heat.

Quickly beat egg into the buttermilk mixture, then pour over dry ingredients. Stir with a whisk just until the batter is blended. If there are a few lumps, that's okay. Let batter stand for 10 minutes.

Heat griddle to 350 degrees F or heat over medium heat. Rub with a little bit of solid shortening and pour batter by 1/4 cup measures onto griddle. Cook on first side until edges look dry and bubbles form and just begin to burst, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip over and cook for 1-2 minutes on second side. Serve immediately.
