Traditional Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

Traditional Buttermilk Pancakes

This is a recipe which will allow you to make your childhood favorite buttermilk pancakes from scratch. It will take you about 20 minutes in total to prepare the mix and cook them. The result are pancakes that can’t even compare to those made with box pancake mix. These pancakes are super fluffy and light and can be served with anything on top. You can even add extra ingredients in the batter mix, like chocolate chips, cinnamon or blueberries. Tip: for extra fluffiness add ½ cup sour milk.


3 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

4 Tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

3 eggs

2 1/2 cups buttermilk

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup melted butter


In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mix and stir until combined but still a bit lumpy.

Heat a skillet or griddle and pour a 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto the griddle. Cook until light brown, then flip and cook for 1-2 more minutes.

Serve them warm with maple syrup and fruit slices.
