Are you with me on that?
Buttermilk Pancakes have a way of transporting me back to my childhood.
Growing up, there wasn’t a single day where my bother and I could run off without a good breakfast in the morning or not come home to a healthy nutritious snack waiting for us. My mom made sure of that. Perhaps this is where my love and devotion to food comes from? Someone psych. eval. me? Even on days when we were running late for school, she’d chase us out into the car with a muffin of a granola bar just so we’d have something to keep us going until lunch. Which, don’t get me started, was like a 5 course meal of it’s own! I totally heart moms, especially my own.
Being back to school season for the kids reminds me of those good old times! But we’re all super busy and have a million and one things going on and need quicker breakfasts// lunches// snack// and dinners to get out onto the table. I know I definitely do!

- 1 cup all purpose flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
- 1 large egg, room temp
- 1 cup buttermilk, room temp
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Use a whisk to mix until just combined. Spread the flour mixture onto the corners of the bowl essentially creating a well in the center.
- Crack an egg into the well and pour the buttermilk and melted butter on top of the egg. Using a rubber spatula break the egg yolk and stir to combine. DO NOT OVERMIX. A few small clumps are okay, you just want to work out the major flour pockets.
- Heat a griddle or nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, you can spray with cooking spray fit you'd like, I usually skip it and go straight with the batter. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, pour the batter into the skillet.
- Allow the pancakes to cook about 1-2 minutes per side or about 3-4 minutes total. Repeat with the remaining batter.
- Serve the pancakes topped with pancake or maple syrup and a ton of fresh berries, granola or sliced almonds! YUMMY!
- Keep in mind that the cooking time for the pancakes will vary based on the thickness of your skillet. I used a 1/3 cup measuring cup to pour the batter into the skillet and ended up with 6 (4inch) pancakes.
