These basic cakes can be embellished with many delicious ingredients. Blueberries, bananas, chocolate chips, pecans, bacon, green onions, and grated cheese are just a few possible variations. Adding a little cornmeal will give the pancakes some texture.

Difficulty: Easy

Hands-on: 30 minutesTotal: 30 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1½ cups buttermilk

Directions

  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl, using a whisk.
  • Combine eggs, melted butter, and buttermilk in another bowl with whisk.
  • Add just enough vegetable oil to a frying pan to coat the bottom. If you’re using a griddle that isn’t nonstick, lightly oil it to prevent pancakes from sticking. Heat pan or griddle over medium heat.
  • Stir egg mixture into the flour mixture until combined, but don’t overmix.
  • Pour about ⅓ cup batter onto hot, oiled griddle or pan for each pancake. Flip pancake when bubbles have formed and started to pop on one side. Cook on other side for a minute or two.
