Buttermilk Pancakes

Buttermilk Pancakes

Even though I’ve posted plenty of pancake recipes, I’ve never posted a traditional buttermilk pancake recipe. My other favorite pancake recipe that I’ve posted with several variations is an oat flour buttermilk pancake, which is so delicious, but if you don’t happen to have oat flour or are unable to find it then these are another great option for your weekend breakfast (or dinner for that matter, we’re always having pancakes for dinner at my house).

Pancakes are one of my favorite comfort foods. Don’t they just remind you of being home and waking up to the scent of buttermilk pancakes and salty bacon sizzling over a hot griddle? For me this rarely happened growing up, usually only on the holidays and most often the pancakes began from a mix. That changed though once I realized my love for cooking, pancakes were one of the first things I learned how to make and I made them the way pancakes were meant to be made –  from scratch. Once you make the switch from a box pancake mix to made from scratch pancakes you’ll never look back. They just don’t compare. Not to mention they are actually very easy to make, you just have to do a little bit more measuring and add a few more ingredients (vs. working with a mix), which adds only number of minutes prep in comparison. For this recipe, if you want thinner pancakes you can add a few more tablespoons of buttermilk or milk and spread them a bit thinner on the griddle. Enjoy!
