“You have got to make these delicious pancakes again!” – A friend trying buttermilk pancakes for the first time.
Who doesn’t love pancakes. If you’re a pancake lover like me, you’ll love this recipe. Buttermilk pancakes are smooth, fluffy, and filling to eat. They are great for a family breakfast, brunch, or even a late lunch. You can add chocolate chips, banana and apple chunks, and berries. These pancakes are fast and easy to whip up with the batter only taking 10-15 minutes and all the cooking a quick 30-45 minutes! Always be sure that you have a nice plate that you can stack your pancakes on, the aesthetics of it become appealing to all. If you have a big sweet tooth like me, add a bit of icing sugar, it makes the pancakes not only look good to eat (like you see in the pictures on the left), but adds even more sweetness to it. You can add anything you want to make is sweeter. Peanut butter, nutella, cinnamon, raisins, and anything else you can think of can make these buttermilk pancakes enjoyable to top, and even more fun to eat. If you aren’t much of a sweet tooth, then just go traditional and pour some maple syrup over those butter milk pancakes. The subtle sweetness of the buttermilk pancakes and maple syrup will leave a light taste on your tongue. You can add a bit of healthiness to it with a side of an apple, banana, grapefruit, or an orange. If you’re interested, the recipe for these bad boys are just bellow.
Psst, here’s a little secret for when I plate my buttermilk pancakes. In between each pancake, I leave half of a handful of chocolate chips. The heat from the fresh pancakes melt the chocolate, and leave you with a gooey goodness spread to eat.
Buttermilk Pancakes (made from scratch!)
1 1/4 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 egg (or 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum)
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
For each cup of milk, add 1 tbsp lemon juice
Making the batter:
Sift all dry ingredients into a bowl. Beat egg in with buttermilk before adding to dry ingredients. Mix batter until smooth.
- Take out a medium sized frying pan and place it on the stove at medium heat.
- When hot, add butter to grease the pan.
- Once butter is melted, take a ladle and pour as much batter as you want. The amount of batter spread on the pan is the size of the pancake you’re making.
- (Optional) As soon as the batter is spread on the pan, add a small handful of semi-sweet and white chocolate chips. Be sure that the chips are covered in the batter.
- Wait till bubbles start to form on the pancake. Once bubbles start to form at the center of the pancake, flip it.
- After a minute, flip the pancake again. The pancake should be a golden brown. Take it off the pan and stack it on a large plate.
This single batter makes 12 medium sized pancakes.
