Pancake Tuesday is only a few days away and, well, who doesn’t love pancakes for dinner? I make pancakes almost every weekend and I always make the American style ones, I definitely prefer these to the skinny pancakes. So with Pancake Tuesday in mind, I thought I would share with you the best recipe for yummy fluffy buttermilk pancakes!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of sifted plain flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 2 cups of buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • Mixed berries

Method

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl or jug whisk the buttermilk, eggs and melted butter. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the wet mixture. Stir gently until almost completely combined – the more you stir the flatter your pancakes will be.

Heat a large pan or griddle at a medium heat and spray with oil. For perfectly golden pancakes, I always use spray oil when cooking these, but only spray the oil on the pan or griddle once.

Using a ladle, drop the pancake mixture onto the pan. Depending on what size of pancakes you want pour as little or as much as you want! I normally get 12 -15 pancakes from this mixture as I make medium sized pancakes.

The pancakes will be ready to turn when bubbles start to form on the top. Just flip them over and cook until for another minute or until they are golden brown. The first batch will always be a little paler, so don’t worry, the rest of the batch will be a perfect colour.

If you want to turn these into blueberry or chocolate chip pancakes, then once you ladle the mixture into the pan, then add your blueberries or chocolate chips to the top and pour a little more of the pancake mixture over them. This will make sure that the blueberries or chocolate chips don’t burn when you flip the pancake over.

Serve warm with mixed berries and whatever it is that you love on your pancakes and enjoy!

Tip: If you want to make a smaller batch then, just cut the ingredients in half.

Happy cooking:)
