Classic Buttermilk Pancakes

Buttermilk pancakes are a classic.

We love pancakes in our house. They really are an easy meal to make that can be enjoyed by everyone. This is the first time I’ve made classic buttermilk pancakes and this recipe didn’t disappoint. I found it on the Taste of Home website.

Wait for telltale bubbles before even thinking about flipping these classic buttermilk pancakes.

The key to making pancakes is patience. Before flipping them, you have to wait for the telltale bubbles around the edges and in the center. The edges should also start to appear dry. If you flip and it doesn’t look golden brown, you can always flip back once the second side is done.

Add in's like chocolate chips, blueberries or pecans make classic buttermilk pancakes more special.

Pancakes hold a special place for me. I love that they are so customizable. Add berries, nuts, or chocolate chips. We all like something different so hubby gets blueberries, I get pecans, and the kids opt for chocolate chips. Of course, plain are good too.

Sometimes the classics are best. These classic buttermilk pancakes are perfect any day of the week. Click to Tweet

The best time to throw in your add-ins is just before they begin to bubble up. This gives the pancake batter a chance to puff up around the berries, nuts, or chips. That way they aren’t just sitting on the bottom where they have an opportunity to fall off the pancake.

Enjoy classic buttermilk pancakes for a delicious Sunday morning breakfast.

Pancakes are a perfect way to make Mom or Dad feel special. Older kids can help make the pancakes. Both of my boys make them on their own, but they are teenagers. Younger children should always be supervised. It’s a great life skill to learn to cook for yourself and pancakes are an easy place to start.
