Basic Buttermilk Pancakes

September 1, 2022

"Pancakes of all kinds are what I think of when I imagine a big Saturday morning breakfast. This is a classic buttermilk pancake recipe, and it’s the perfect base for all kinds of toppings and add-ins. For example, try popping 5 to 8 blueberries or chocolate chips into each pancake before baking."

Directions

Preheat the oven to the lowest setting (that’s 170°F for me), if desired. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, stir together the buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture, and stir together until just mixed, but some lumps remain. Fold in the melted butter until fully incorporated.

Add a small pat of butter to the hot pan to melt. In batches, add about 1⁄3 cup batter per pancake to the hot pan, spacing them evenly. Cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and, if desired, keep warm in the oven while you cook the rest of the batter.

Serve with your favorite syrup and more butter!
