Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

My mom's pancake recipe was a natural for the brunch we held at our family reunion. We made three batches and served the golden pancakes with a variety of toppings.—Betty Abrey, Imperial, Saskatchewan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 cups buttermilk

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and baking powder. In another bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk until blended; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • 2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until second side is golden brown.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled pancakes between layers of waxed paper in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, place pancakes on an ungreased baking sheet, cover with foil and reheat in a preheated 375° oven 6-10 minutes. Or, place a stack of three pancakes on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 45-90 seconds or until heated through. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

"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."

"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."

"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 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."

"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...."
