Buttermilk Pancake Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    2 cups buttermilk
    1/2 cup salted butter, melted and cooled slightly
    Clarified butter or high-heat vegetable oil, for cooking

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Whisk in buttermilk and melted butter. Stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture until just combined (lumps are OK).
  3. Heat the oven to 90°C and place an oven-safe plate or baking dish inside. Heat a large, non-stick skillet on the stove top over medium heat. Melt 1/4 teaspoon of butter on skillet. Dollop 1/2 cup batter onto skillet; depending on the size of the skillet, it may fit 2-3 pancakes. Cook pancakes until bubbles rise to the surface and pop, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip pancakes and cook another 2 minutes.
  4. Transfer cooked pancakes to plate in the oven. Cover with foil. Repeat with more butter and remaining batter, until all pancakes are cooked.
