This recipe was originally from Martha Stewart Living for pancakes from scratch and adapted to what I use now.


2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1/2 teaspoon for griddle
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

(I don’t buy buttermilk so I mixed 1tbsp of white vinegar into my milk and let sit while combining the ingredients in the first part of the recipe.  Can also be done with 1 tbsp lemon juice)

Optional: various chocolate chips, nuts or fresh fruit.

Heat your griddle to medium heat while mixing ingredients. Combine all the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl thoroughly.  In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Begin by beating the eggs lightly first then adding; buttermilk, and 4 tbsps of the melted butter. Gently fold the wet into the dry ingredients. . Do not overmix; it will have small to medium lumps.

Pour 1/4 cup full for each pancake and cook until bubbly and the edges are browning.  Flip and cook an additional minute or two.  Top with your choice of toppings and serve!

-If you are like me, this makes more than my family can eat.  I usually freeze half of it in a large ziplock bag and just sit in the fridge the night before I want to use it.  Works just as good after being frozen.
