Why I Love This Recipe

Everyone that tries these pancakes raves that they are the best they've ever had!

Ingredients You'll Need

3 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
3 eggs
3 cup buttermilk
6 tbsp melted butter


Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl beat eggs then add buttermilk and melted butter and mix well.
Stir dry ingredients into egg/buttermilk/butter mixture just enough to mix slightly without leaving too many dry parts, Do not over-stir.

Cook on griddle over medium heat until the tops are bubbly and start to look almost dry looking. Flip over. I do it from the outside and flip in. If you get a little batter on another pancake just scrape it off. Cook second side 1 to 1 1/2 min more and then remove from heat. I put mine on a plate in a warmed oven (175 degrees F) while I make the rest of the batch and serve all at once.


Note: If buttermilk is not available in your fridge use sour milk.
To sour milk: for every cup of milk use 1 tbsp of vinegar.

Pairs Well With

Serve with lots of butter and your favorite pancake syrup.
