Tired of pancakes from a box – or worse, from the frozen food section? Mama’s homemade buttermilk pancakes are easy to make and will satisfy the whole family.
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp sugar
2 large eggs
3 cups buttermilk
4 tsp melted butter
extra butter (as desired) for topping and for frying
Step 1: Mix Dry Ingredients
Blend together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar) in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
Step 2: Whisk Eggs and Add Wet Ingredients
Whisk the eggs together in a separate bowl and mix in the other wet ingredients (melted butter and buttermilk).
Step 3: Whisk all Ingredients Together
Now slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, whisking until blended well. The mixture should be wet, but thick, with little to no lumps.
Step 4: Melt Butter on Griddle or Pan
Melt a small amount of butter onto a heated griddle or pan. A griddle should be heated at about 375F, while a frying pan should be on med-high.
Step 5: Spoon Pancake Batter Onto Pan or Griddle
With a spoon, pour buttermilk pancake batter onto the pan or griddle so that it forms a circle of the desired pancake size. Make enough for for everyone. This makes around 20 small pancakes or 10 larger ones.
Step 6: Serve as Desired
Pancakes can be served with butter, syrup, fruit, whipped cream, or any other desired toppings. For healthiest options, eat them plain or with fruit.
