No-fail Buttermilk Pancakes

If you are looking for a pancake mix that always works really well, and is delicious, here is my favorite:

2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
2 1/2 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. melted butter

Put oil on griddle for every pancake. Put 1/4 cup of mixture at a time on medium heat.
Serve with warmed maple syrup.

Ooooh. Yummy.

Does it work well in waffle form? My kids like that a bit better.

Andrea said...

I've never tried it for waffles. I think I have a waffle recipe somewhere on this blog that works well.

Courtney said...

Yum! I'll have to try it. Why are my pancakes always "wet" and soggy, do you think?

Andrea said...

Do you use a griddle? I think that makes all the diff.

Two questions if you have time...does whole wheat flour work?
How do you keep all the pancakes warm while you are making the rest? We have been putting a plate in the oven at 200 degrees while we keep frying more pancakes. Then it seems like they still get cold fast. This is just for our family (which will demand more as our boys grow!). I can't imagine how we would have another family over and serve them too! Any ideas about how it works for you are appreciated. Love, Mary Brooke
PS we use a "griddle" that is plug-in.

Mmm...I am a pancake-aholic. I'll have to try these!

Mary Brooke, I have never tried whole wheat with this recipe. I am guess it could work? But I don't know.

another way to keep pancakes warm is put them on a cookie cooling rack in the oven at 200 degrees or less after they are made. They don't get soggy and they stay warm. Make sure it's low enough so they don't get hard!
Another thing is just to eat them as soon as they fly off the griddle, which is what we do!! =)

Sounds yummy. This recipe is close to mine with two exceptions: I use self-rising flour and add a teaspoon of vanilla.

Rose said...

another thing you could do is add mini chocolate chips and banana slices, that's how i make mine! and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top. sweet treat. :)

In our houes, our recipe for pancakes is called "fly off the plate pancakes" because they don't have time to get cold. We make a similar version without buttermilk and add a little bit of brown sugar. I'll have to give your recipe a try this weekend! Thanks!
