magical buttermilk pancakes

magical buttermilk pancakes, originally uploaded by iamchanelle.


these are magical.

especially when topped with cinnamon cream syrup.
magical, i tell you.

these are the very same pancakes i told you about before – see how magical they really are? they can be blueberry, or plain, or chocolate chip, or even sprinkled with fairy dust. whatever you want.

Magical Buttermilk Pancakes
makes about 8 smallish pancakes.
i recommend tripling this recipe – these freeze exceptionally well if wrapped securely in plastic wrap (I love using that press&seal stuff).

1 large egg
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons applesauce (or oil. but trust me, you cannot even tell the difference when you use applesauce! try it.)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch kosher salt

* blueberries, chocolate chips, cooked and chopped bacon, etc. optional – about 1 cup.

heat a little butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Beat egg in a large mixing bowl, then incorporate remaining ingredients just until smooth.

ladle about 1/4 cup batter onto skillet and cook about 1 minute before adding any of the optional ingredients (blueberries, choco chips…) over the batter. i just grab a handful and sprinkle over the top.
When edges are golden and cooked through, flip pancake over and cook about a minute more.
Place in a warm oven, on a cooling rack or in your face.

best served with generous pats of sweet butter and cinnamon cream syrup, or real maple syrup. i mean, in my opinion.

hope you enjoy the magic!

  1. *sigh* stupid store. My stupid, only store in town, isolated for hundreds of miles from any others, refuses to bring buttermilk in anymore ‘cuz it doesn’t sell well’. Grrrr…. I’ve been buttermilk deprived for months. I WANNA MAKE THESE PANCAKES! *pout*

  2. aw, thanks stacey!

    nerissa – BOO! no buttermilk?!?!?! lame. but there is a solution i wanted to pass along:
    1 tablespoon distilled vinegar for every 1 cup milk. voila! it totally works in a pinch. i use that all the time when i am out of buttermilk but really want to make a recipe that calls for it.

    teri, thanks girl! let me know how you like it! and i have an awesome choco chip cookie recipe i use all the time – maybe i will post that one next. 🙂
