{Best} Buttermilk Pancakes

Edie recently shared her trick for getting dinner on the table. I love everything about her post and I can totally relate. I was reminded that the struggle is real for all of us who have people to feed and I was encouraged to continue to feed them well.

But I still have those days when everyone wants to know “What’s for supper?” and I have no plan. Sometimes we head to Little Caesars but another good option is pancakes. I LOVE homemade pancakes. They’re my go-to comfort food on breakfast-for-supper night. With a few ingredients from your pantry you can have a tall stack ready in no time.

Pancake Recipe

{Best} Buttermilk Pancakes*

  • 2 Tablespoons, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg

Preheat griddle to 400 degrees

Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.

Combine buttermilk, milk, egg, and butter in a separate bowl.**

Add to flour mixture and whisk just until blended.

Let stand 10 minutes.

Brush butter onto preheated griddle and add pancake mix. When pancakes get bubbly they’re ready to flip.

* I always triple this recipe for all-we-care-to-eat-pancake night but this makes plenty for a normal family with normal appetites.

**A fall variation of this recipe:  Just add 1/2 of a 14 oz can of pumpkin puree (not pie filling) to the buttermilk mixture and mix well before adding to the flour mixture. I’m not a big fan of pumpkin flavored anything but these are sweet and delicious!
