Best Ever Buttermilk Pancakes

Oh man, we love pancakes in our house…we have them every weekend.  Without fail. If we’re all home, we eat pancakes on Saturday morning! And I look forward to them every week, especially because I don’t have to make them! This is the hubby’s job!

A while ago, he ventured out of our usual recipes, and tried a new one…gasp! He wanted to try Martha Stewart’s Best Buttermilk Pancakes, and I thought that they wouldn’t be any better than any other buttermilk pancakes we’ve had.  Boy was I wrong. These are the best.  Literally.  They rocked our socks off! Yeeum.

Simple.  Rich.  Comfort food.


Best Ever Buttermilk Pancakes


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 large eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp butter (melted)


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  2. Add eggs, buttermilk and butter. Stir to just combine. The batter should be slightly lumpy (small lumps).
  3. Scoop about 1/3 cup batter for each pancake.
  4. Pancakes are ready to flip when the top of each pancake is spotted with bubbles and some of the bubbles have popped.
  5. Serve with yum yummy syrup!


You can use all white flour if you wish.

    We love this recipe too! We tried it a little while ago, and it has been our go-to recipe ever since then. We use all white whole wheat flour and have substituted the butter for olive oil; and we toss in blueberries too! Amazing. Stopping by from Tasty Tuesday – glad I did 🙂
