Buttermilk Pancakes

   I grew up eating pancakes from the yellow Bisquick box. I was always excited when I could smell pancakes cooking in the kitchen on a Saturday morning. I make the Bisquick version for my family all the time, but now that I've tried these homemade pancakes, I am officially sold. They're absolutely delicious!

   The secret is in the title. Buttermilk. Yep, buttermilk is what makes these light, fluffy and melt-in-your-mouth amazeballs! I normally don't have buttermilk in my fridge, but I think it's something I will start keeping on-hand for these pancakes.

   They were a hit with my kids. They scarfed them down and kept demanding for 'just one more'. I was one happy Momma to oblige! Anything I don't have to beg my kids to eat makes me happy :)

Buttermilk Pancakes
Makes 12 pancakes

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions: In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and sugar. Set aside.

In a seperate medium bowl, beat the 2 eggs, then slowly add the 2 cups buttermilk until blended. Add this wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until combined. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract. Batter will be slightly lumpy and thick.

Drop 1/3 cups of batter onto a hot 350 degree F. buttered griddle. Cook on first side 2-3 minutes or until edges are slightly dry. Flip pancakes and let cook another 2-3 minutes or until center is fully cooked.  Swipe butter onto griddle between batches.

Serve with syrup, whipped cream, strawberries or whatever you like on your pancakes. Enjoy! ♥

I don't normally keep buttermilk, but have seen the powdered buttermilk in the cooking aisle. Might have to finally buy that to make these! They look very yummy!

A great tip for making your own buttermilk is to add 1 Tbsp of vinegar to just under one cup of milk. I use Fat Free milk and it works perfectly. Can't wait to try these! We have pancake Saturdays too!

Hi Holly

Why do you have 2 cups buttermilk, divided in the list if you are using all 2 cups in the batter.

Holly said...

Hi Jackie! So sorry for the late response. The 'divided' is an error. You add the 2 cups all at once. I'm commenting from my phone so once I get on a computer Ill fix it :)
