Buttermilk Pancakes

They’re simple, light and fluffy, slightly sweet (you can definitely make them sweeter with syrup!), and they’re so easy to make! No need for pancake mix, these are HOMEMADE! Better than any mix, plus you probably have the ingredients hanging around your pantry, maybe except for the buttermilk, but that’s an easy fix!

Buttermilk Pancake ingredients

Make Your Own Buttermilk 

Make your own. For every cup of milk, add a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice. Mix well and it’s ready to use! You can definitely use plain milk, but buttermilk adds that tang, a little flavor enhancement! It’s subtle, but definitely is missed.

Start Your Day Flavorful

Add a pat of butter, some maple syrup and nothing is better to start your day! Although, you can add a little more flavor if you’d like.

  • Chocolate chips
  • Blueberries
  • Bananas
  • Peanut butter
  • Cinnamon
  • Oatmeal
  • Lemon zest
  • Nutella
  • Anything you want!

It’s a blank slate, a perfect vehicle for any flavor.

Or keep them simple and top them with your favorites such as

  • Whipped cream
  • Berries
  • Caramel
  • Peanut butter
  • Bananas
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Icing
