These fluffy buttermilk pancakes are the perfect accompaniment with eggs, bacon and fresh fruit or on their own, stacked high on a plate. Once you make this easy pancake recipe you’ll never buy a box of pancake mix ever again. Even when you don’t have buttermilk on hand, I share a trick to make your own!
Our family loves to eat breakfast food. Sunday mornings usually include a nice breakfast that brings everyone to the table to connect before the busy week begins again. When my husband is in charge of dinner, he usually pulls out all the stops and puts together a “brinner” that would put Tutti Frutti to shame. He always asks me to whip up a batch of these pancakes.
When I’m really on the ball, I’ll make a few batches of these fluffy buttermilk pancakes to keep in a mason jars. I add all the dry ingredients together in a jar and store it in the cupboard. I like to add a little sticky note to the jar to remind me that I only need to add the eggs, buttermilk and melted butter to use.
These fluffy buttermilk pancakes are also an awesome addition to bring along on a camping trip. Last summer when we rented a cottage for a week, I made 2 batches to bring along with us. It also makes it super easy for the kids to step in and help out with breakfast. The kids could have fun mixing everything together in a big bowl and making smiley faces in their pancake batter with fresh fruit.
What kind of meals do you bring along with you to camp? Do you make things in advance? Or bring all the ingredients along with you? I like to make lots of salads while I’m at camp so I’ll pre make my dressings (like Caesar salad dressing) or put a salad together before we leave, like my classic macaroni salad.
Tip: How to make Buttermilk
Combine ¼ cup of white vinegar with 1 ¾ cup of milk, preferably whole milk. Allow this to sit for about 5 minutes. When the mixture appears lumpy it is ready to be used. Use the mixture immediately.
Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes
- 2 cup buttermilk
- ¼ cup white sugar
- 2 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 egg
- ¼ cup butter melted
Mix together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
Whisk the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir together until all the lumps are gone. Adjust the consistency with more buttermilk or flour as needed.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat and spray with a cooking oil. Spoon in pancake batter and cook on one side until bubbles appear in the middle and the edges appear dry. Flip and continue to cook until the centre of the pancake springs back when pushed gently.
This recipe makes approximately 12 medium sized pancakes.
