Gram's Buttermilk Pancakes

One risk I have run into with raising our own chickens, is serving eggs to often for breakfast! Truckin' Man is pretty good at letting me know when he needs a change up in our menu plan! Today, was one of those days. He wanted pancakes, so I got out my Grandma's recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes. She gave me this recipe about a year ago when I was complaining about always being out of pancake mix when the mood struck to make them. I haven't bought a mix since. 

These are so simple, you don't need a box mix. Don't have buttermilk on hand? You can make a buttermilk substitute in just 5 minutes with milk and vinegar or lemon juice!

Grams' Buttermilk Pancakes
2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
2 eggs
2 c. buttermilk**

Mix dry ingredients.  Add eggs and buttermilk to dry mix. Mix until combined,there may be a few lumps.

Bake on hot griddle.

Buttermilk Substitute: For two cup of buttermilk, add two tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to a liquid measure cup. Fill cup to equal two cups, with milk.  Let set for 5-10 minutes. Add to recipe as needed.

  1. Oh Kris...these look fabulous! You know, I'm ashamed to admit this, but I've never made pancakes totally from scratch. I'm always using the Bisquick box recipe. If you don't mind...I'd love to adopt your grandmother's recipe! Oh..and can I borrow a couple of fresh eggs, too? These are just scrumptious! : )

    1. Oh Anne.. You have to try these! I bet you could totally take them over the top with one of your homemade syrups or sauces! Blackberry syrup would be delicious on these!

  2. My daughter is a pancake fan..She will love this.
