How to Make Buttermilk Pancake Recipe

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together buttermilk, egg, and melted butter or cooking oil in a 2-cup measuring cup.

Pour buttermilk mixture slowly into the flour mixture, stirring to combine as you pour. Allow to rest for about 3 minutes.

Heat griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. Add butter to griddle or skillet to make sure well coated. Scoop batter onto prepared griddle or skillet by about 1/3 cup.

Allow to cook until the edges have lost their sheen and bubbles have formed in the center of the top of the pancake, about 2-3 minutes.

Flip the pancake and allow to cook about 2-3 minutes on the other side.

Remove from griddle or skillet and serve warm or place on a rimmed sheet pan in a 200º F oven to keep warm for serving.

Since these are ready in just a few minutes, it’s not hard to get everyone to the breakfast table when they know these babies are waiting on them. Light, fluffy, and so delicious, you’ll get requests for these all the time. I promise!
