melt-in-the-mouth buttermilk pancakes


I bought a small carton of buttermilk to make whoopie pies for my sister’s party. The next few posts will of course be about buttermilk as I try to use it up before the expiry date. 🙂

A really delightful way to use buttermilk is to make buttermilk pancakes. There are a lot of buttermilk pancakes recipes on the internet. This one caught my eye because of the title.

I halved the recipe and made 7 pancakes of approximately 5 inches diameter each.

Melt-in-the-mouth buttermilk pancakes (from ohsweetbasil)

  • 128 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, slightly whisked
  • 250 ml buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  1. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt into a bowl.
  2. Mix egg, buttermilk and salt in a bowl.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold to combine.
  4. Melt about 1/2 tbsp butter in a  frying pan.
  5. Pour in 1 ladle of pancake mix in the middle of the pan. Reduce heat to low.
  6. Flip over when pancake turns golden brown.
  7. Serve warm with butter and drizzled with maple syrup.


Were they melt-in-the-mouth? Hmm. They didn’t exactly melt. But they tasted very good! Fluffy with such wonderful fragrance from the buttermilk. This is a super way to use buttermilk.
