Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  •  3 large eggs (room temperature)

Preparation Instructions

  1. Mix the batter—In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix buttermilk, milk, eggs, and melted butter. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and blend with wooden spoon or spatula. Batter will be lumpy—resist the urge to over-mix.
  2. Prepare the pan—Lightly oil or butter skillet or griddle and place over medium high heat. When a drop of water sizzles on pan, it’s ready to go.
  3. Make the pancakes—Ladle approximately 1/2 cup of batter for each pancake onto skillet—depending on size, you can cook 2 or 3 at a time. When the batter bubbles all over and edges turn brown, flip pancakes, and cook for an additional minute or two.

Tips

No Buttermilk? No Problem!

Pour one tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar in measuring cup and add milk to equal one cup. (Note: you’ll need three cups for these pancakes.) Stir together and let the mixture sit for a few minutes before adding to recipe.

Add-Ins for Extra Deliciousness:

Dressing up pancakes couldn’t be simpler—add anything from chocolate chips and toasted nuts to mashed bananas and candied ginger or try a savory spin with crumbled bacon or sausage. For delicate ingredients like blueberries, press into pancakes after ladling onto skillet, rather than mixing into batter.
