Description

I’m a pancake snob. Cake-like pancakes that absorb the syrup in 2 seconds are NOT my thing. After an extensive search for the perfect pancake recipe, I finally found it! I could eat these every day of my life. Really.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1 whole Egg
  • Oil, For Cooking Pancakes

Preparation

Heat your oven to 200ºF (to keep your cooked pancakes warm). Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk, melted butter, and egg together. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, pour the buttermilk mixture into the well, and gently whisk together until just incorporated with a few lumps remaining (don’t overmix). Heat your skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes before pouring your batter in. Brush the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of oil. Cook pancakes until golden brown on both sides.

FANTASTIC!! This is the kind of recipe I was looking for. My family loved it, and the fact that it was super easy makes using a pre-made mix a thing of the past for me. Thanks for sharing!

Holy Moly those are good panckaes! I’ve never made pancakes that thick before so I was a little skeptical, but they were the bomb!

these are great! i added a little bit of vanilla and about 1/4 cup of cornmeal. very easy to make. i was a little leery of using oil instead of butter to grease the pan. in the end, i couldn’t do it; i had to use butter!

Yummy! I usually add 3 cups of buttermilk and 2 eggs. This makes more batter and thinner pancakes.

Awesome – and simple (no sifting or beating egg whites…) – they were sweet with all the sugar but really great!
