Old-Fashioned Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes – melt in your mouth tender and fluffy, these buttermilk pancakes are a weekend staple.
Old Fashioned Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes
These pancakes are hands-down our family favorite and a weekend staple in our house. Buttery and fluffy with just the right amount of old-fashioned buttermilk flavor. My brother-in-law Tony has always made the best pancakes, and several years ago he gave me the recipe. We have been using it ever since. I always make a double batch so my kids can have leftovers throughout the week.
How to Make Buttermilk Pancakes
- Preheat a nonstick griddle to medium heat. I use 325 degrees on a non stick electric griddle.
- Melt butter for recipe.
- In a large mixing bowl combine, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt and whisk together.
- Add buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract and stir until combined.
- Pour batter onto griddle using a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Let cook 4-5 minutes or until edges are set and pancakes are golden brown. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes.
Pancake Making Tips
- For evenly golden brown pancakes, just use a good nonstick griddle.
- For crispy buttery pancakes, brush griddle with melted butter before cooking.
- For even cooking, only flip pancakes once. Wait to flip until first side is completely golden brown.
- Refrigerate or freeze extras for leftovers.
Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes
To make blueberry buttermilk pancakes do not mix blueberries into batter. Here is how to do it:
- Spray griddle with nonstick cooking spray or brush with butter to prevent berry juice from making a sticky mess.
- Ladle plain buttermilk pancake batter onto griddle.
- Drop blueberries individually into each pancake.
- Once pancakes are golden brown on bottom and edges are dry, flip and cook blueberries into pancake.
- Use fresh or frozen blueberries. The berries are so small, frozen berries will cook through.

Oh my goodness were these yummy! Keeper recipe. The tip for putting butter on the griddle makes quite a difference. I don’t usually do that. I added blueberries to half of them which turned out super well.

Delicious…Couldn’t find the recipe I’ve used for decades that was handed down to me from my Grandma (she lived in Ky her whole life and never wrote down a recipe in her life
. She would say I just eyeball it and go by how it feels when I am mixing,and since I didn’t start cooking until I was in my teens and we had moved to California when I was 9, I couldn’t watch her. Took me forever to get it right (or as close to right as I could) Hers were so good, I remember when I was little and we were over at her house and start cleaning up after breakfast I would sneak a cold left over hot cake and just eat it cold with nothing else on it. So dang good. I’m still working on trying to duplicate her homemade syrup. Was just Vanilla, sugar (don’t remember if it was brown or white, and water.. But nothing on the market is close. i’m just going to keep trying unless anyone on here has an idea
