An easy pancake recipe – make these quick and easy pancakes for breakfast or brunch. Made with buttermilk, the pancakes turn out light and fluffy.
This homemade pancake recipe will become a favorite breakfast and brunch recipe with your family.
Pancakes that are made from scratch just can’t be beat. Be sure to have plenty of real maple, blueberry or apple cinnamon pancake syrups on hand along with real butter to make these pancakes even better.
Buttermilk in these homemade pancakes makes them moist and light and gives a homemade flavor. If you don’t care for the flavor of buttermilk, you may substitute the same amount of whole milk instead. But I would suggest you give the buttermilk a try, as the flavor mellows after the pancake has been fried.
“If no buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon lemon juice to one cup of milk and let sit for up to 5 minutes this works in place of the buttermilk.” – Stacy S. via FB
