Martha Stewart Buttermilk Pancakes

"The key to fluffy pancakes is not to overmix the batter; it should not be beaten smooth. If serving these pancakes with bacon, reserve half a teaspoon of bacon drippings to grease the griddle instead of butter. Serve with Raspberry Syrup, if desired."

Ready In:
9 6inch pancakes




  • Heat griddle to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons butter; whisk to combine. Batter should have small to medium lumps.
  • Heat oven to 175 degrees. Test griddle by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If water bounces and spatters off griddle, it is hot enough. Using a pastry brush, brush remaining 1/2 teaspoon of butter or reserved bacon fat onto griddle. Wipe off excess.
  • Using a 4-ounce ladle, about 1/2 cup, pour pancake batter, in pools 2 inches away from one other. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.
  • Repeat with remaining batter, keeping finished pancakes on a heatproof plate in oven. Serve warm.

    These have great flavor, but found them to be too thin. 3 cups buttermilk to 2 cups flour was too much liquid. Will try them with less buttermilk next time. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.

    I made half the recipe for the 3 of us. It was enough for us. These pancakes are not thick like the ones I'm used to do. But still the taste and texture was great. thanks FullyClothedChef :) Made for New Kids on the Block tag game

    These were great pancakes...I love thin buttermilk pancakes, I thought that these were perfect. So much flavor. The cakes were tender, fluffy, light and fragile. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely recipe. Made for Fall Pac/12


I'm really not very good at cooking at all. Hence the need for other people's recipes!! So thanks for making me look good!
