There are 2 things I can count on that my picky 4 year old will eat - hot dogs and pancakes.
Last time I made homemade butter, I got quite a bit of buttermilk out of the process.   What better to do than make buttermilk pancakes?  It didn't matter that it was the middle of the afternoon.

I enjoyed a plate of stacked hot pancakes covered with butter and maple syrup that were super delicious!  I actually used to use a mix to make the little guy's pancakes - but no more!  It's so easy to make buttermilk pancakes, and these taste so much better than any mix.

How to Make Buttermilk Pancake

To make buttermilk pancakes, you first need your ingredients.  Of course you'll  need buttermilk, but no - you don't have to make your own LOL.  You will also need flour, salt, baking powder, butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs. 

You will also need a few kitchen tools.  I recommend a nice whisk,a bowl, measuring spoons, measuring cups, a pancake pan, and a spatula.  Or if you'd like to cut down on how many kitchen tools you need to dirty up, then this Pancake Shaker Bottle is great.

Combine all of your ingredients into a bowl and allow to rest.  Then heat your pancake pan or a griddle.  Add some butter to the hot pan and add some of your batter.  Your pancake is ready to flip when it starts to form small bubbles around the edge.  Flip the pancake and allow to cook for about a minute before removing the pancake from the pan.  

Your pancakes are then ready to eat with your favorite topping, like this homemade whipped cream.

That's it for these buttermilk pancakes.  Until next time!

Buttermilk Pancakes

So light and fluffy, these buttermilk pancakes are so easy to make and super tasty.


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 teaspoons baking soda

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.

  5. Allow to rest for half an hour.
  6. Turn a griddle onto high heat.  Add small amount of butter or oil to prevent sticking.
