The Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes

"This is a staple in my house on the weekends. Its a hit with my kids and guests that come over. It can easily be double or tripled. They freeze very well so no batter goes to waste. Warm in microwave and they taste like they were just made. You can even dress it with whipped cream and/or fruit of your choice."

  1. Great Pancakes. Just the way I remember growing up from Mom's kitchen.
  2. These Buttermilk Pancakes came out "Perfect". The only small changes that I made was that, where I live (the Philippines), they don't sell buttermilk here. So, what I did, was I substituted it, by using 2 tablespoon of white vinegar to 2 cups of milk. And the of changed that I made was instead of adding 4 tablespoon of milk like the recipe calls for, I added 5 tablespoon to the already made batter. These Buttermilk Pancakes is being made every Sunday morning, along with Maple Syrup Sausages, and Scramble Eggs.
  3. Excellent pancakes. Light and fluffy with good flavor. We enjoyed these very much. I really liked the blender method!
  4. These were wonderful buttermilk pancakes Air Force Mama. We really enjoyed this lovely treat. The texture and flavor were spot on. Quick and easy to make, made exactly as written, wouldn't change a thing. I garnished these treats with icing sugar and butter, my favorite way to enjoy pancakes. Thank so much for sharing, I will be making these again. Made for Best of 2013 Tag Game, thanks lazyme for recommending.
  5. Made this for two except used almond ext. instead of vanilla. Served with chokecherry syrup which has almond ext. in it also. Soooo good together.
