    Great recipe! I added a splash of vanilla as well and increased the sugar to 2 tsp. Instead of whisking the flour mixture, I sifted it. Will make this recipe again : )

    A fabulous recipe for basic pancakes. I admit I usually make mine from Bisquik, but this reminded me that it's just as easy to make them from scratch! I added a splash of vanilla. The buttermilk makes them really good.

    I will never buy pancake mix again this was so easy to mix up and made the fluffiest pancakes ever! I didn't have buttermilk, so I used 3/4 c of milk and added 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.

    These pancakes never fail! I make them bigger than the recipe suggests, and substitute soured soymilk for the buttermilk. I also go about 1/4 whole-wheat flour... if you use too much, tho, the pancakes won't be as fluffy. I save any left-over batter for the next day, and really can't tell the difference once they're cooked up.

    Easy, excellent pancakes. Perfect for a morning at the cabin!

    I made the basic pancakes and they are delicious. Don't know why it is necessary to move the batter to a measuring cup before letting it stand for 10 minutes! A definite repeat.

    Absolutely love this recipe. Very easy. I add a splash of vanilla to it though.

    I have tried multiple "from-scratch" pancake recipes and usually feel they are pretty boring and lifeless, so I usually stick with Bisquick.....but I had buttermilk on hand and decided to try these. They were delightful....very moist and rich because of the buttermilk. Nice and light because of the baking powder and soda....we'll be eating these more often!

    This is an amazing recipe! This is my first time making homemade pancakes and it was super easy. I tweeked the recipe a little. I added 2 tsp of sugar, 1 tsp lemon juice, and 1tsp of vanilla, nut, butter flavor. They are great! I'm just finishing breakfast! Happy eats!

    I subbed lowfat plain yogurt for the buttermilk and was a little nervous about how thick the batter ended up. I worried for no reason, because they turned out to be absolutely delicious. Hands down, the best "from scratch" pancakes I've made.

    Was an unpaletable mess, very goopy, I would not make this again.

    Very good basic recipe. Added 1 T of cornmeal and zest of one lemon and it heightened the flavor even more. Sprinkled wild blueberries on top after pouring batter into pan. Delicious!

    I followed the recipe to a "T". The texture of the pancakes were nice and light. However, there was this weird aftertaste. I don't know if it was the baking soda or baking powder. What would happen if I decrease the baking powder or baking soda?

    Really great recipe! I usually use Arrowhead Mills Multigrain pancake mix but was out. My son is lactose intolerant so I substituted soy milk for the milk and soy creamer for the buttermilk, as well as Smart Balance light butter spread for the butter. Did 3/4 white flour and 1/4 wheat flour. They were amazingly good and very easy to make!

    This is exactly what it says - your basic buttermilk pancake. It's wonderful - my pan was too hot and they still taste amazing. I used half and half to make the buttermilk, so I ended up with a cup of buttermilk and 1/4 cup of milk. The texture is perfect and so is the flavor.

    As far as taste goes, these were very good pancakes. Probably a 4 star for the taste. I found that they didn't present very well. They were a bit on the flat side. I am not sure if I did something wrong, but I like a more fluffier looking pancake.

  • itravel Posted: 11/26/13

    These are flippin great pancakes! (Get it?) I didn't have buttermilk because who ever does? So I added a Tbsp of lemon juice to 1c whole milk. Pancakes were light & airy almost crepe like and easy to make without oil in a small non stick saute pan. I added some chocolate chips resulting in total blissfulness! This recipe turned out better this time than last I think because I used new baking powder. Sure enough my previous can was expired. I think letting the pancake mixture rest 10 min gives the baking powder time to activate which is important to the recipe.
