Buttermilk Pancakes

I've made my share of pancakes for the blog here. Well, I say share as if I've made a ton, when really I should say I've made a few. The banana pancakes have to be one of my favorites, but this one is right up there as well. You know what I don't like in a pancake? Flatness. These pancakes have none of that! They're nice and tall and fluffy and oh so good.

It's funny, though, because typically I am more of a waffles person that a pancakes person. Technically I supposed waffles are easier to make then pancakes, because you just stick them in a waffle iron and kind of leave them to do their thing, but for some reason pancakes seem easier. What is that about? I suppose it might have to do with the hassle of actually getting the waffle maker out, and then having to clean it afterward, even though it's nonstick so it's not that hard to clean. Am I the only one who thinks this way??

Nevertheless, if you were to offer me these pancakes, I'd say yes please! The touch of vanilla in there gives them some oomph without being too overpowering, and I also like that this recipe doesn't make a crap ton of pancakes. That said, if you're feeding a family, you should probably double the recipe. As it stands, it's good for a couple of adults and maybe some small children, depending on the level of pancake love going on.

Delightful tall and fluffy buttermilk pancakes.

  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for pan
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup plus 2-4 Tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  1. Heat oven to 225F and place a large baking sheet inside.
  2. Melt your butter halfway in a large bowl, then whisk in the sugar. Make sure it's lukewarm and not hot, then add in your egg and vanilla and whisk again. Then add in your buttermilk and whisk some more. Whisk in your salt and baking soda until fully combined, then wipe down the sides of the bowl and stir in your flour until it just disappears.
  3. Heat up your griddle or frying pan over medium, plop on some more butter, then dollop your pancake batter. I used a cookie scoop and made little baby pancakes. Once bubbles form on the top, flip that baby.
  4. Reduce your heat to medium-low, and cook the other side. Once golden brown on this side, remove to the oven. If you see some uncooked bits on the sides, that's fine, they'll cook in the oven the rest of the way.
  5. Repeat for the rest of the pancakes.
