Buttermilk Pancakes

This is a simple recipe that you can throw together and have pancakes from scratch. It was quick and easy and the whole family loved them.

The recipe came from Hillary at Dinner On a Dime. The only downside to these pancakes was the batter is not that sweet.

We tried these babies with fruit syrup and regular syrup. Because the batter is not that sweet we preferred these pancakes with regular old syrup. Maybe a little vanilla extract in the batter would help.

  • No problem. Thanks for responding and I will try to let it sit (and check the dates on my stuff)


  • Sorry, things have been crazy since I got back to my blog. You may have had bad (old) baking soda or baking powder. I also allow the batter to rest a little bit before cooking it. You will notice when you do that, that the batter will puff up in the bowl. It allows the soda and powder to start working. Over mixing could have also been a problem. Hopefully this helps.

  • Hi! I made these over the w/e and not sure where I went wrong. It was my first time making pancakes from scratch though so that could be it. The pancakes weren’t “fluffy” enough and you could still taste the batter, even though they were cooked through…if that makes sense. Where do you think I went wrong? If was definitely me and not the recipe! I know a common problem is overmixing, so that could be it. They also expanded when I cooked them!

    Hope this makes sense 🙂


  • Laura – these sound so good. Thanks for the alternative to using real buttermilk… you know I’m not that great at planning ahead! Just wanted to let you know I nominated you for a blog award. Check it out here: https://fabulesslyfrugal.blogspot.com/2009/02/lemonade-award.html

    Thanks for your inspiration!

  • I was looking for a buttermilk recipe to try so thanks for posting~ your superbowl appetizers looked so delicious I had to come grab a recipe. Thanks so much for posting. I posted a good sour cream pancake with buttermilk syrup over at ohsweetbasil.blogspot.com if you want to give that a try too. They are not at all healthy though. Thanks again!

  • You need to try the chocolate chip pancakes posted on joythebaker.com. I have made them with and without the chocolate chips, and they are good to eat even without syrup! Trust me!

  • These sound really yummy with the addition of sour cream!I love buttermilk pancakes.
