The Best Pancake Recipe

Saturday, March 7, 2015

A couple of years ago I shared my family's love and obsession of pancakes with you. Since then we have done a lot of mixing, pouring and eating; perfecting our pancake craft and developing our own recipe that I believe really makes the best pancakes! All the recipes we have tried in the past always ended up tasting like baking soda so we dispensed with the baking soda and I think you will find that you won't even miss it.

When I think of the best pancake, I think of crispy and buttery on the outside and fluffy and soaked with syrupy goodness on the inside. These are those pancakes. They are crispy but not hard; fluffy but not heavy.

If you love pancakes but have struggled to find the perfect recipe, look no further! Happy pancake making!


The Best pancake Recipe
 *makes about 15 pancakes
 *Can also be used to make waffles
 *triple the dry ingredients to make a ready  made mix( use the same amount of wet ingredients for every 2 cups of mix, but if you want to decrease the amount, use 1 cup of mix and half the wet ingredients)

Wet ingredients
*4 Tbs. of melted butter
*2 eggs
*1cup of milk
*1 cup of buttermilk
*2 tsp. vanilla

Dry Ingredients
*2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour(I use grain that I buy from a co-op ( )and I mill at home, called soft white wheat. It makes a huge difference and is very nutritious ) But you can buy soft white wheat at the store if you don't have a mill.
*3 tsp. baking powder( this is the key to fluffy pancakes without the baking soda taste)
*1 tsp. salt
*2 Tbs. honey or sugar

Mix all the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet mixture. Pour on buttered griddle. Flip when bubbles form on top. Serve and enjoy with maple syrup, fruit and whip cream!

 Fruit Syrup
1 cup of your choice of fruit( strawberries and mixed berries are our favorite)
1/2 cup of orange juice
2 Tbs. brown sugar
Heat over  medium heat for 10 min.
Pour over pancakes while hot.

If you are all out of maple syrup here is a great buttermilk caramel syrup that you can make at home. We love it!

  3. Oh my, these look sooo good! We are just getting into making pancakes and we have been using a traditional recipe which is fine. I'm not sure if we have buttermilk in New Zealand. Can you think of a substitute?

    1. Thanks Sarah! Yes you can! You can use milk instead and put about a Tbs of vinegar or lemon juice and let it sit for a while and it will thicken up or keifer works also:)
