Reviews for Buttermilk Pancakes
"Perfect pancakes. I have been making these for years with my youngest granddaughter. The only change I have made is to only make 1/4 of a batch for her and I, a small splash of vanilla plus the addition of blueberries."
"I was out of regular milk but had plenty of buttermilk on hand, & I was really happy to find this recipe. Its a keeper!"
"My husband and kids loved them, even the one that is not much of a pancake lover. The batch was perfect for my whole family (six people) So it makes a lot. So fluffy and the taste can definitely say HOMEMADE."
"This makes very good pancakes! It is very close to my regular recipe, except has no vegetable oil, but they were still great! It also makes a lot."
"I have never made good pancakes, until now. I have pretty much always used box mix thinking that was the way to go and having them never turn out. After trying this recipe I will never go back and now I will be happy to serve my family pancakes. The recipe does make a lot I may try to cut the recipe in half next time."
"Perfect recipe! This will forever me by go-to pancake recipe!"
"I have been using the same recipe for years. Today I decided I wanted something different. Although it's pretty much the same as the other, this will be my go to recipe from now on. These were very fluffy and a bit sweeter, and no added fat. YUMMY!!!!"
"Excellent. Thick and fluffy. We did some plain, some with blueberry and some with sliced banana and pecans. Made enough to freeze."
"great mix I too mix all the dry and then add the eggs and buttermilk for the amount we need. Stores very well.Perfect pancakes no more box mix in this house."
"These were easy to put together, husband loved them, no more pancake mix in our house. Cut recipe in 4ths as it is only the two of us and had to use soy milk mixed with lemon juice for the buttermilk as I have a severe milk allergy. Will mix up dry ingredients and have on hand for a quick breakfast."
"Very good. Nice and fluffy. Perfect buttermilk pancake!"
"These are the fluffiest pancakes I have ever made. They are perfect."
"A wonderful, basic pancake that's ready for any toppings you want to put on it!"
"Best pancakes I've ever made! I have never used eggs in pancakes before and I wasn't sure how they would taste. This is one recipe I will use from now on!"
"Wonderful! A few simple ingredients and a stellar pancake!"
"Has anyone tried combining the dry ingredients, possibly using dry buttermilk to store as a mix and then just adding the eggs and milk, (which would then complete the buttermilk ingredient each time you use the recipe?"
"Very light and fluffy, way better than buttermilk pancake mix"
"Very flavorful, I love it.The problem of thick vs thin is the flour. Measure out 4 cups of flour and tap down the cups to fill, then triple sift the flour and measure without tapping down. You will have up to 1/2 cup more. First thing you could do is measure by weight, 4 cups is 17 ounces of flour per the usual baker's conversion ratio. (1 cup = 4 1/4 ounces) It's quicker to use 3 /12 cups of buttermilk and add more as needed."
"The only pancakes I'll ever make!"
"These pancakes are delicious and it is now my #1 pancake recipe. I cut the recipe in half as it made too many."
"My family loves this recipe they like how fluffy the pancakes are."
"Best pancakes ever!! Even better than IHOP. Some said they turned out thin. It may be because you over-mixed them. Stir just until moist and they will be thick and fluffy. Definitely my go to recipe."
"Have made these many times, they turn out perfect and freeze well"
"really easy, and so good.."
"Best buttermilk pancakes I have ever made. Added half a cup of blueberries just before cooking."
"I will never use boxed pancake mix again after having these!!! Great recipe"
"Delicious! Super easy, a new family favorite."
"I Made this recipe as waffles instead of pancakes and cut it in half, i used about 2 1/4 C of buttermilk so the where watery enough.:)"
"I've never made real, homemade pancakes before. These blow away store bought, box pancake mixes! yum. So easy and taste great. I will probably never make pancakes from a box mix again."
"These were great! I was worried they'd be dry because of no oil or butter added, but they were very moist. Cannot wait to make with blueberries. Will always use this recipe when I want to make pancakes."
"Amazing fluffy pancakes!"
"super easy and amazingly delicious! family favorite"
"Reviewed on November 6, 2011 by Mrs.C.I thought my recipe for buttermilk pancakes was the best, but this is the best I've ever made. They were absolutely delicious. Thanks."
"Absolutely perfect pancakes."
"Sooooooo simple and delicious!!"
"Excellent. I like to add fresh or frozen blueberries."
"I just made these and they were very good ,my family loved them and from now on I will make these all the time ,thank you for sharing this marvellous recipe."
"What a treat! Everyone enjoyed it! Easy to make too!"
"If you want them even more tender, use all cake flour or at least 1/2 cake flour."
"This is my go-to recipe for pancakes. They're wonderful. Often I'll add fresh or frozen blueberries, which really makes them great."
"Very Good, I halved the recipe to feed less people, and had good results! I think the "thick v/s thin" batter has to do with the consistency of your buttermilk, and sea level elevation. Here in Chicagoland we have a thicker buttermilk, and I found the batter very thick. But still delish! This has become a keeper recipe in my house...."
"Not too thin at all!"
"If you are used to the thicker Bisquick pancakes, these will seem thin. I, on the other hand, add extra milk to Bisquick when I use it, because they are too thick! Think IHOP!"
"Based on the comments from other "reviewers", I decided to try using only 3 1/2 cups of buttermilk. The pancakes turned out beautifully and everyone agreed that they were the best pancakes I had ever made."
"I was concerned at first by the comments that the batter was too thin, but that was not my experience at all. The batter was fine and the pancakes are very moist and tender. This is definitely now my go-to recipe for pancakes."
"these are the best pancakes I've made! they are so easy and quick. we make them all the time!"
"These are my son's favorite pancakes. Every weekend he asks for the 'fluffy pancakes' and I am happy to serve these.They are the best I have ever made. I half the recipe sometimes with great results.Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Batter was very thin, i added 1/3 cup more flour."
"I thought the batter was a little thin so I added about 1/4 cup more of flour."
