Recipe Time: Anissa's Buttermilk Pancakes

posted on: Wednesday, April 27

There is a little backstory to this recipe. I had to call West Elm to arrange the delivery of some furniture we had ordered. While speaking to the woman on the phone {Anissa} she heard me whisking eggs in the background and next thing you know I'm telling her how  I am not the breakfast master of the family. Well, we got to talking and before I knew it a half hour had passed and we had chit-chatted our way to swapping recipes. Alas Anissa's famous buttermilk pancake recipe can now be shared with y'all. She's from the south folks so believe me, they're good! Recipe below. You're welcome!

  • Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

— In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Separate the egg whites and whisk to fluff. Add vanilla to egg yolks, mix, and set aside. In a separate bowl, beat together buttermilk, milk, egg whites and melted butter. {This is your wet mixture.} Keep the mixtures separate until you are ready to cook.

— Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. You can flick water across the surface and if it beads up and sizzles, it's ready!

— Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a wooden spoon or fork to blend. Fold the egg yolks into the mixture. Stir until it's just blended together. {If you are adding fruit, do so here.} Do not over stir! Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/2 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
