  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups buttermilk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • Cooking spray or additional butter for greasing the pan

  • Toppings
  • Maple syrup

  • Fresh berries

  • Whipped cream

  • Butter


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter until well combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps in the batter are okay. Let the batter rest for about 5 minutes.
  • Preheat a non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium heat. You can also use a lightly greased pan if desired.
  • Once the pan is hot, ladle about 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, and the edges start to look set, usually about 2-3 minutes.
  • Flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until the other side is golden brown.
  • Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and cover with a clean kitchen towel to keep them warm while you cook the remaining batter. You can also keep them warm in a preheated oven set to low temperature.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining batter until all the pancakes are cooked.
  • Serve the buttermilk pancakes hot with your desired toppings such as maple syrup, fresh berries, whipped cream, or butter.
