Cracker Barrel Buttermilk Pancakes

Total Time

Update: I have double checked the baking soda amount and it is indeed 2 tsp. Hope this helps avoid any confusion. *** I absolutely adore the pancakes served at Cracker Barrel, especially their pecan pancakes. This recipe comes from the Cracker Barrel Cookbook. In my experience, you need to make sure that your cooking surface is well greased or you get leathery pancakes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together until incorporated, but do not over mix.
  2. Heat a griddle or non stick pan under med. - med. high heat, and grease with a little butter or oil (more if you like a crispy edge).
  3. Drop batter using a 1/4 cup measuring cup onto hot pan. Once the bottom side is golden, flip and brown remaining side.
  4. Serve with butter and real maple syrup.

Yes, this is the cracker barrel pancake recipe. I use 2-3 c. of buttermilk, some buttermilk is thicker than others. You want a fairly thin batter and a very hot pan. I use 475 on my griddle. The sugar and butter is key to the browning factor and taste. This aren't thick pancakes, enjoy

I'm also a huge fan of Cracker Barrel pancakes and this recipe was the best. I also think the baking soda recipe is a typo. I used 1 teaspoon. I did an extra step to ensure fluffle pancakes. I whipped the eggwhites separately till they had stiff white peaks and folded it into the batter after mixing all other ingredients. Viola!They came out the best ever.

This is a great recipe, however, I think you mistyped the amount of baking soda to add. I used about 1teaspoon. They were great and had a nice flavor reminiscent of Cracker Barrel's.
