Buttermilk Pancakes with Homemade Syrup

Prep Time: 7 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 17 minutes | Yield: 16-20 pancakes

Pancake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour (I love White Lily)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 TBSP sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 4 TBSP butter, melted

Syrup Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar (could try 2/3 cup next time- was a little too sweet)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (could try next time to mix this 50/50 with milk or cream)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat griddle to 375 F.
  2. Melt 4 TBSP butter and let cool.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  4. In a separate smaller bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk and melted butter. Whisk until well combined.
  5. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture. Mix until combined.
  6. With a 1/3 cup measuring cup, pour pancake mix onto griddle. Cook until brown.
  7. To make syrup, combine butter, sugar and buttermilk in saucepan over medium heat until butter melts. Whisk until combined. Remove from heat and add baking soda and vanilla and whisk again.

Notes: These pancakes are so light and fluffy, and everyone loves the syrup that goes with them. Can freeze pancakes for later. Not sure how long syrup keeps.
