Buttermilk Pancakes

Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes are about as traditional a staple for a weekend family breakfast that one can find, especially with a splash of homemade buttermilk for that extra tang, drizzled with maple syrup and a pat of butter.

Buttermilk Pancakes

The weekends are great for many things, but I must say one of my favorite parts is waking up on a Saturday morning to make breakfast with my family. It’s so nice not being rushed and teaching my kids how to make some of my favorite recipes. One of our family favorites is Pancakes – if they want something sweet, it’s ALWAYS what they choose.

Pancakes are one of the easiest things to make from scratch, and you can add toppings so easily, making it a meal that is easy for everyone to enjoy. My Mom always makes fun letters and shapes for the kids, I’m not quite as talented so I keep that classic circle shape, much to their dismay.

Buttermilk Pancakes

  • Author: Heirloomed Collection


These delicious, fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes are the perfect breakfast recipe for a Saturday morning.


  • 1 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch of kosher salt
  • 1⁄4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1⁄4 cup oil
  • Topping of your choice : blueberries, butter, whip cream, syrup, etc


  1. Start by preheating your skillet or griddle, on about medium heat to get it warmed up.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, egg, and oil until combined, in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Grease your skillet or griddle with a few pats of butter to avoid sticking. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the surface for each pancake. Cook each pancake for about 1 minute or until the batter starts to set around edges and little bubbles or pockets begin to appear on the “raw” side of the pancake.
  4. Flip and cook for about 1 minute or until you see the pancakes are browned on the other side and cooked through.
  5. Repeat with the remaining batter.

This recipe gives you such nice and fluffy pancakes. We like to add different topping like blueberries or strawberries, but you can really add anything – chocolate chips, nuts, Nutella, you name it.
