Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10-12
  • 2 cups flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 to 1-2/3 cups buttermilk
  • 6 Tablespoons melted butter or Crisco Oil
  • 3 eggs
  1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Make a well in the center and add wet ingredients.
  3. Stir with a wire whisk to mix, just until ingredients are blended, scraping sides and bottom of bowl to get everything incorporated. Be careful not to over-mix. Batter will be thick.
  4. Let batter sit in bowl for 1 hour to rise.
  5. Do not stir batter at all during this time.
  6. Do not stir the batter when you are frying the cakes.
  7. Just use a large ladle to scoop out batter. Fry on a hot griddle or frying pan.
This recipe makes 10-12 cakes.

If you like a thinner cake, you may add a little more buttermilk when you initially mix the batter, before you let it rise, rather than stirring the batter later.
