  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs , beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons milk , to thin batter


  • Heat griddle to 350 degrees F (or heat a large skillet to medium). Grease with butter or non-stick cooking spray.
  • Combine dry ingredients in large bowl: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
  • Add buttermilk, eggs and melted butter and mix just until wet and dry ingredients are incorporated. You don't want to over-mix the batter.
  • Add milk, a little at a time until batter is still thick, but pourable.
  • Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop batter and pour on hot griddle. Cook pancakes until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip once.
  • Serve warm with syrup!


Store leftover pancakes in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.  Rewarm in the microwave or toaster oven.
Freezing Instructions: Allow to cool completely, then lay pancakes in a single layer on a large baking tray and place them in the freezer.  Allow them to harden for about 30 minutes, then stack them in a freezer safe container or bag and freeze for up to 3 months.  The "flash freeze" will help keep them from sticking to each other.
