Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes

Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes

It doesn’t get much better than a big stack of Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes in the morning or I sometimes have them for dinner, too! These light and fluffy pancakes with their delicious buttermilk flavor are the perfect way to start or end your day.

Making these Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes is so simple. Seriously, once you make these pancakes you will never make pancakes from the box again. And the best part is they taste WAY better than any box mix. Trust me…make these pancakes this weekend and I guarantee your family will love them!

Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

 DON’T OVERMIX: When mixing the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, you only want to mix the batter  until you don’ see any more flour, the batter will be LUMPY! Overmixing your pancake batter will result in dense, heavy pancakes.

LET THE BATTER REST: While you are waiting for the griddle to get hot, let the batter rest. This allows the gluten to relax and settle, which means the pancakes will be more tender. Yummy!

 GRIDDLE TIP:  If you are using a griddle, make sure it’s hot enough before putting the pancake batter on it. I like to do a test to make sure the griddle is hot enough. What I like to do is drop a tablespoon of pancake batter in the center. If, after one minute, the pancake is golden brown on the bottom, the pan is ready. If you still see pancake batter or the bottom is burnt…adjust the heat accordingly.

    Made these today for Shrove Tuesday.  It was a new recipe and one can never be sure how they turn out. The comments were so positive I decided to try the pancakes. I am so glad I did. As per my diet requirements I used skim milk with vinegar to make “buttermilk” and low fat sour cream. other than the pancakes my Oma used to make, these were one of the best pancakes I have ever made/ eaten!!! Delish.

    I have tried several different kinds of recipes; each time being disappointed. So after looking at this recipe and finding sour cream and buttermilk together I was so excited.; these by far ARE THE BEST PANCAKES EVER!!!!! I made them exactly like the recipe except I omit the vanilla .  Three min on each side measuring the amount out. They were light fluffy and held their size. My whole family voted this recipe to BE NUmber ONE.  And only one  to make. Thank you for this re pie I will no longer spend hours looking for that special recipe..
