Super Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

  • Author: Millie Brinkley
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: Makes 12 pancakes 1x


Super fluffy buttermilk pancakes are the perfect way to start off your day.  Made completely from scratch, these pancakes rise up tall and fluffy, are super flavorful, and easier than you think to make.  You’ll never buy that boxed stuff again.



2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 cups buttermilk, room temperature

2 large eggs, room temperature and beaten

½ teaspoon vanilla

½ teaspoon almond extract

½ cup melted butter


In a large measuring cup, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.

Gently fold in the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and almond extract just until combined.  You’ll have some small lumps.  Don’t overmix the batter or your pancakes will be tough and flat.

Set the batter aside to rest for 10 minutes.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat.

Once the pan is hot, generously brush the bottom of the pan with melted butter.

Ladle ⅓ – ½ cup of the batter into the pan for each pancake.  Don’t overcrowd the pan.

Cook the pancake until small bubbles appear on the surface.

Carefully flip the pancake and continue to cook on the other side until golden brown.

Serve hot with butter and syrup.
