I’ve written about so many different pancakes in this blog and each one has been a winner. We’ve just rotated the recipes in our house and try to make them all! We can’t really decide on one winning recipe. If the readers do use these recipes and can write in with feedback on the ones you prefer, that would be awesome.
My 8 year old daughter suddenly craved pancakes this morning for breakfast, and I told her the only way she’s going to have pancakes (instead of upma) is if she makes it herself. So she went off to the kitchen at 9.30, and was devouring these pancakes at 10.15. Slathered in maple syrup, and with dollops of butter, she looked like the cat that licked the…syrup!
Easy Buttermilk Pancakes
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup salted butter, melted and cooled
- Oil, or butter for cooking
Mix all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt) in a bowl. In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs and melted butter.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry flour mixture. It’s okay if there are lumps, but make sure its all wet and there’s no dry flour left.
Heat a griddle or flat bottomed pan on medium high. When warm, add the cooking oil or butter. Add 1/4 capfuls of the batter to the pan. Wait for a minute until bubbles begin to appear on the surface, then flip over. Cook for a further couple minutes on the other side until browned. Remove from pan and keep on a warm plate. Repeat for the remaining batter.
Serve warm with maple syrup, honey, jam and butter. Or Nutella. Or fresh fruit. Or just eat it plain off the plate. Especially those crispy little pieces of batter on the edges. Mmm.
