The BEST Buttermilk Pancake Recipe
It’s finally here!!!! After testing, and testing, and testing all sorts of buttermilk pancake recipes, we’ve finally come up with what Cade and the girls say is finally the award winning, melt in your mouth buttermilk pancakes recipe!!
Woop there it is!
This recipe for buttermilk pancakes truly took us months of testing, but I just know you’ll love it too so it was worth every disaster and every re-do.
We tried all sorts of different techniques, like adding oil instead of butter, sifted flour or regular flour, egg whites beaten to stiff peaks, an extra egg yolk, whisking versus stirring, baking powder, both baking powder and baking soda and blah blah blah.
Everyone swears by the egg white method, but we actually found that not only did it take too much time, but the pancakes were surprisingly too airy for us. We wanted a light pancake but we still wanted it to melt in our mouths, which means we had to ditch the egg white and change up our baking soda and baking powder method.

Can I Substitute Powdered Buttermilk?
You can use buttermilk powder, however I HIGHLY recommend sticking with the liquid as it is absolutely better, thicker and fluffier. If you need to use powdered, I suggest our Read more
