Buttermilk Pancakes

buttermilk pancake recipeI am not much of a breakfast eater. When I do eat breakfast, I eat the same boring thing every day. Whole wheat toast with a little peanut butter. See, I told you, boring. But these Buttermilk Pancakes could make me change the way that I feel about breakfast. These are what I want in a pancake. Flavorful, light, fluffy, and delicious. While I am not much of a breakfast eater, the rest of my family lives for breakfast. My children have declared these the best pancakes ever. Until there is a batch of Cinnamon Bun Pancakes on the table that is. Pancakes are an ultimate comfort food. Not only do they satisfy my breakfast food craving, they all also satisfy my inner Domestic Goddess. Nothing makes me feel more like a mom than standing over the stove on a Saturday morning in my pj’s flipping pancakes. Well, maybe the insane amounts of diapers that I have changed in the last 6 years make me feel like a mom too, but making pancakes is way more fun.

  • Made these for my boys this morning and they were a hit!!! And easy enough for them to help too which made them even better! Thanks!

  • Made these this morning and they were awesome. I had to make a few alterations because I have been gaining weight from all my baking and I need to get my blood sugars lower. I did half the recipe and there still had tons of pancake which is awesome. I used wheat flour instead and splenda sugar blend plus I added some mini chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup). These pancakes rock and I love how fluffy they were! I am glad I came across this website! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

  • I made these pancakes with the blueberry sauce this morning for my husband and he declared them the best pancakes he has ever eaten. Buttermilk is going to have to become a staple in our fridge. The blueberry sauce was fabulous too. I think we’ll be making some greek yogurt pops later with the leftover sauce. Thank you for sharing such wonderful recipes!

    • Wow! Buttermilk is easy to make if you do not have any on hand. Pour a cup of milk into a cup and add a Tablespoon or so of lemon juice or vinegar and let it sit for a few minutes. Viola! Buttermilk.
