Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (250 grams)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter (plus more butter for cooking)
  • High-heat vegetable oil (like canola or safflower) for cooking


  1. Pre-heat your griddle to 375° or heat a nonstick sauté pan or skillet over medium heat.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 200°F.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  4. Beat the eggs thoroughly. Add the eggs, melted butter and half the milk to the dry ingredients and mix gently until combined. Now stir in the remaining milk until the batter is the desired consistency. Don't overmix!
  5. Melt butter on the griddle or pan. It should foam and sizzle. Drop a tiny bit of cooking oil onto the griddle and blend it with the butter.
  6. Now, for each pancake, ladle ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle or pan.
  7. Cook until the tops of the pancakes are full of bubbles and the bottoms are golden brown.
  8. Flip the pancakes and cook until the tops are golden brown, then either serve right away or transfer to the oven to keep warm.

  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • Clarified butter or high-heat vegetable oil, for cooking

  • Mini chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles, for garnish


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Whisk in buttermilk and melted butter. Stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture until just combined (lumps are OK). Fold chocolate chips into pancake batter.
  3. Heat the oven to 200°F and place an oven-safe plate or baking dish inside. Heat a large, nonstick skillet on the stove top over medium heat. Melt 1/4 teaspoon of butter on skillet. Dollop 1/2 cup batter onto skillet; depending on the size of the skillet, it may fit 2-3 pancakes. Cook pancakes until bubbles rise to the surface and pop, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip pancakes and cook another 2 minutes.

4.  Loaded Blueberry Pancakes

Recipe courtesy of thetribunenews


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or slightly less table salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1 tablespoon extra for brushing griddle
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen and thawed (optional)


1. Preheat an electric griddle to 375°F, or place a griddle pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons melted butter, and whisk to combine. The batter should have small to medium lumps.
2. Test the griddle by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If the water bounces and spatters, the griddle is hot enough. Using a pastry brush, brush the remaining 1/2 teaspoon butter onto the griddle. Wipe off the excess with a folded paper towel.
3. Using a 4-oz. ladle, about 1/2 cup (for a 6-inch pancake), pour the batter in pools 2 inches apart. If you wish to make blueberry pancakes, arrange a handful over the cooking pancake, pressing them in slightly. When the pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around the edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. If any batter oozes or blueberries roll out, push them back under with your spatula. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.
4. Repeat with the remaining batter. You can keep the finished pancakes on a heat-proof plate in the oven at 175°F.

Recipe compliments of joythebaker


  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon zest
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • butter, shortening, or vegetable oil for frying
  • maple syrup for serving


  1. In a small bowl combine granulated sugar and lemon zest.  Rub together with your fingers until sugar is fragrant.  Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Stir in the lemon sugar.  Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl (or you can use a large liquid measuring cup), whisk together buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and melted butter.  Pour the wet ingredients all at once into the dry ingredients.  Add the poppy seeds and stir to combine.  If a few lumps remain, that’s no problem.  Let the batter rest for 10 minutes while the griddle heats.
  4. Place a griddle, or a nonstick saute pan over medium heat.  Add a bit of butter, shortening, or vegetable oil to the pan.  A teaspoon of fat will do for a n0nstick saute pan, a bit more fat may be necessary for a griddle.  Dollop batter onto hot pan.  For small pancakes, I use about 2 tablespoons for each pancake.  For larger pancakes, I use about 1/4 cup of batter.  Cook until golden brown on the bottom and and bubbling on top.  Flip once and cook until golden brown on each side.
  5. Place cooked pancakes on an oven-proof plate and place in a warm (about 150 degrees F) oven until all pancakes are cooked and ready to serve.  Serve with butter and warm maple syrup.

  2. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and whisk to blend (don't overmix, batter should still have some lumps). Butter griddle if necessary, pour batter onto preheated griddle 1/4 cup at a time and slightly spread batter in a circular form outward (so the centers aren't so much thicker than edges) and allow to cook until bubbles begin to appear on the surface, about 1 minute. Then carefully flip to pancake to opposite side and cook until done.
  3. Serve warm topped with chocolate sauce, strawberries and bananas.

For the chocolate sauce:

  1. Place chocolate chips in a medium heat proof bowl. Bring heavy cream just to a gentle boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Pour hot cream over chocolate chips and stir until chocolate has melted.
  2. Note that chocolate sauce will thicken as it cools, also if you want a thinner consistency you can add a few more tbsp hot cream. Reheat as needed in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.

Recipe photos compliments of topwithcinnamon


For the pancake batter:

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp oil (I used melted coconut oil)
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup

For the frosting:

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 oz powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp pecan butter (or v. finely chopped or ground pecans)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean past (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 2 tbsp malted milk powder
  • 1-2 tbsp milk


  1. Make the pancakes by combining the first 3 ingredients in a bowl. Make a well in the center and add the rest of the pancake ingredients. Stir together until just combined.
  2. Pour heaped tablespoons of batter into a large, non-stick frying pan preheated with a little oil. Cook over a medium-low heat until bubbles form + burst on the surface of the batter. Flip the pancake using a metal spatula and cook on the other side until golden brown, then remove from the pan and transfer to a cookie tray. Repeat until all the batter has been used up.
  3. Make the frosting by creaming all the ingredients together in a medium bowl. Add 1 tbsp of milk at first and if you need it, add the second tbsp.
  4. Stack the pancakes, with layers of frosting in between, then frost the outside of the cake if you want too (I use a smooth butter knife to smooth it all out).
