The BEST and EASIEST Buttermilk Pancakes

I think it’s safe to say that one of my favorite breakfast dishes is pancakes – more specifically today’s butter-y, syrup-covered Buttermilk Pancake recipe! Thinking about it makes me salivate. I’ve loved pancakes for as long as I can remember but had never really made a recipe from scratch until recently.

You see, we love pancakes any way they are served, but we have fallen in love with homemade pancakes. Not only are they easy to make, but the pancakes end up being so fluffy and flavorful. I had always wanted to try a buttermilk version and am glad we finally made the time to do it. The result was amazing and the kids ended up eating all of them in about .2 seconds (Seriously!) Since we always have breakfast for dinner on Wednesday nights, we are excited to add this recipe to the rotation.

We are so glad we found a “go-to” homemade buttermilk pancake recipe. We often have batter mix on hand, but not always and now we won’t have to. This homemade version is even better than any mix you can find at the store. The pancakes always end up so soft and are irresistible! Best part is that pancakes are loved by the entire family, which means we have an easy and loved-by-all recipe that we can make each month. That’s not always easy with 6 kids so I have a feeling we will be making these very often. ;D

Who else’s family is obsessed with pancakes??

    How many pancakes does the recipe for buttermilk pancakes make. It’s only two of us eating and from the ingredients it must make them for a army?

      Kristyn Merkley

      I’m not sure how many it makes, it just depends on how big you make them, but it can make quite a few. You can always half the recipe for just the two of you 🙂

    I tried your meatballs. I decided that I needed more sauce than called for in your recipe. The sauce was great – just needed enough to cover.


    Hi, I tried to make bread for the first time,it raised up fine, I punched it and it didn’t raise the second time😑. Any suggestions.


    This is a great recipe. What I have discovered from other recipes for pancakes is after you mix everything together is let the batter sit for 30 minutes. This lets the soda and baking powder along with the buttermilk do its thing and makes the pancakes rise more. Try it!
