Here’s how to make some EASY buttermilk pancakes in practically no time at all.

Make The Pancake Batter

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Set this bowl of DRY ingredients aside while you mix the wet ingredients. In a SEPARATE bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk. These are your WET ingredients.

Dry pancake batter ingredients are whisked together in a large bowl.Eggs and buttermilk are whisked together in a separate bowl.

Stir the WET ingredients (egg and buttermilk) into the bowl of dry ingredients. Stir, to combine, just until the ingredients are mixed, but do not OVERMIX. This is your batter for the easy buttermilk pancakes. See how easy it is to make the batter from scratch?

Cooking The Easy Buttermilk Pancakes

Lightly spray a griddle or large skillet with a non-stick cooking spray or brush on some cooking oil to cover the surface. Heat the griddle until hot. Using about 1/4 cup per pancake, pour the pancake batter onto the grill, forming a circle. The pancakes will be approximately 5″ in diameter.

As the easy buttermilk pancakes cook, large bubbles will appear on the surface of the pancakes, as shown below. When there are lots of bubbles on top AND the bottoms of the pancakes are golden brown, carefully flip the pancakes to the other side.

Pancakes are cooked until bubbles form on surface and bottom sides are golden brown.Time to turn over the pancakes when large bubbles appear on the top.

Continue to cook the pancakes until set, and cooked through. Both sides should be golden brown when done. Remove the pancakes from the griddle (or skillet), and transfer them to serving plates.

Repeat this process with all the batter, which will yield approximately 15 pancakes. You can wrap the pancakes in foil and keep them warm in a low temperature oven while you cook the rest of the pancakes, if you wish.
