Pin this recipe, save it for later, print it whatever method you prefer to use but seriously keep it close to you because this is good and the real deal! And I'm not even exaggerating one bit, these buttermilk pancakes are crispy on the edges, and soft and fluffy in the center and have the perfect amount of sweetness.
These pancakes are just as fluffy and pretty as the ones you could eat at a dinner but taste a million times better. Best of all they are really not difficult to make and take very little time.
You don't need to use a boxed mix either to make them, these buttermilk pancakes are completely made from scratch, but don't worry they are as easy to whip up as the boxed ones.
They are also so versatile, you can pair them with almost anything you have on hand, fruits, chocolate, candies, cookies, butter and maple syrup, peanut butter, jelly, the possibilities and flavor combinations are endless. But truth to be told they are so good and so old-fashioned delicious that the best way to eat them is with a good amount of butter and drenched in maple syrup, trust me.
The secret to making them extra fluffy and not rubbery or hard is to not overmix the batter. After all the ingredients are incorporated stop mixing and that's it. If you mix too much, your pancakes will end up flat and chewy. And now that I'm sharing my secrets this hack works with every pancake recipe you want to make, yes, even with the boxed ones. so next time you make pancakes just stop mixing, pour your batter into the skillet and enjoy the fluffiest pancakes you've ever had.
Needless to say, they are great for breakfast, late night cravings and even for those times where the only thing you want to have for dinner is breakfast fare.
