Homemade Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe for Pancake Day


ID-100106262Every once in a while I like to serve breakfast for dinner and with it being Pancake Day (also known as Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday and Mardi Grau,) on the menu tonight we will celebrate with yummy pancakes.

I love the convenience of cooking up pancakes, mixing up the homemade batter to be put on a hot skillet and in minutes you have a treat with your choice of toppings. Some of my family members go with the traditional melted butter and maple syrup , others prefer chocolate chips cooked into the pancake with a whip topping. I prefer honey over my pancakes and adding blueberries and raspberries. No matter how you like your pancakes, this is a great batter to start with and dress up your pancakes anyway you like.


1 cup Self Rising Flour
2 TBS Sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons Milk
1 egg
2 TBS Butter, melted
1 tsp Vanilla

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, beat buttermilk, milk, eggs, vanilla and melted butter.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until just blended. (Do not over mix!)

Using a ladle, pour onto hot skillet (about 1/2 cup full) for each pancake.

When you see bubbles forming on the top, carefully flip to cook a couple minutes more on the other side.

Serve with fresh berries or toppings your choice.

Serves 4
