Best Buttermilk Pancakes

Best Buttermilk Pancakes


This scrumptious buttermilk pancake recipe will create the best buttermilk pancakes you’ve ever had. I’m so excited to share images of my favorite buttermilk pancakes with you along with instructions on how to make them in your own kitchen.


  • 2 +1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 1 tablespoon Mexican vanilla (or vanilla extract)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup milk, either whole or 2% lowfat
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • Butter for cooking and garnishing
  • Pancake syrup


  1. Briefly mix or whisk dry ingredients together: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Add the wet ingredients: eggs, melted butter that’s been cooled down a bit so it’s not hot to the touch, vanilla, lemon juice, milk and buttermilk. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Don’t overmix! The pancake batter will still have some lumps – but that’s okay.
  3. Heat a pancake griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease the griddle with butter.
  4. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, ladle the pancake batter onto the grill. Allow pancakes to cook about 1-2 minutes. You’ll see small bubbles starting to form. Flip the pancakes over and continue to cook them for another 1-2 minutes until done.
  5. Briefly remove your griddle from the heat while you transfer the cooked buttermilk pancakes to a platter. Grease the griddle again and put it back over the heated burners. Repeat the process until all the buttermilk pancakes have been made.
  6. Garnish as desired. Serve hot.
