Buttermilk Pancakes

As I may have mentioned about a million times before, my son is on a Gluten-Free/Casein-Free diet for autism.  He is a very picky eater!!!  One of these things I can almost always count on him eating is pancakes.  We use the Kinnickinnick pancake mix.  Problem is, my two girls love pancakes too so I always have to make GFCF pancakes and regular pancakes.  Until recently, I just made simple Bisquick pancakes.  Super easy.  Hubby is  a bit of a pancake snob though.  Did you marry a man who loved his mama's cooking and yours just doesn't compare?  My hubby is like that about his Nannie's pancakes.  I'll admit they are good, but I'm too lazy to beat my eggs to stiff peaks in a seperate mixer every time I want to make pancakes.  It's too much trouble and quite frankly I'd need to get up 20 minutes earlier to do it, which isn't gonna happen very often.  Then, I discovered a new recipe from Real Mom Kitchen

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

•2 cups all purpose flour

•2 tablespoons sugar

•2 teaspoons baking powder

•1 teaspoon baking soda

•1/2 teaspoon salt

•2 cups well shaken buttermilk (you may need a little more if you want a thinner batter)

•2 large eggs

•1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used canola)

1.Mix dry ingredients together in medium bowl.

2.Add all wet ingredients (eggs, buttermilk, and oil) to a separate bowl and stir just until blended.

3.Add the wet ingredient to the dry ingredients just until combined. Do not over mix, batter will be slightly lumpy.

4.Lightly coat skillet with oil. Heat to medium low (I do one notch below medium).

5.Drop 1/4 cup of batter onto heated skillet. Use the back side of a spoon to help even out the batter.
    (I cooked mine on a griddle and they were fine)

6.Cook on first side until bubbles begin to form on surface and underside is golden, about 2 minutes.

7.Flip over and cook another 2 minutes until golden brown and center springs back when lightly touched.

8.Serve warm with maple syrup and butter. Makes 10-12 pancakes.

YUM!  Easy as Bisquick and a WHOLE lot fewer bowls to clean.  Not to mention I'm a whole lot less gripey not having to get up twenty minutes earlier to beat the durn eggs! 



  1. I love pancakes but rarely make them. I should do them for dinner sometimes!

  2. I'll try them! The fact that they're healthier is an added bonus.

    (And I would so not want to beat eggs to peaks for pancakes either...)

  3. Mmmm! We're pancake lovers around here too, and these look good!

  4. I loooooove pancakes!!! Those look thicker than the ones I've made. I'll have to try your recipe sometime soon!

  5. I have been looking for a good pancake recipe, and now I have one! Thank you! I usually use bisquick. I think next weekend I will make these!
    Have a pretty day!
