"Aspiring to a soufflé, he achieves a pancake at which the reader saws without much appetite." -John Leonard, Author

The refrigerator light goes on...

I prefer to use a non-stick griddle for cooking my pancakes. The result is fantastic and they cook evenly and quickly.


Buttermilk Pancakes

Servings: 2 | Serving size: 2 pancakes

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied or halved. Leftover pancakes aren't very good. The batter will keep overnight but the pancakes will not be as good.

Buttermilk Pancakes recipe from Dr. Gourmet


  • 6 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 6 Tbsp. whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup non-fat buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. (per serving) unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp. (per serving) pure maple syrup

Sift the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.

Add buttermilk, eggs and vanilla extract and blend using a large whisk until smooth.

Heat a non-stick griddle over medium-high heat.

Let the batter stand for at least 2 minutes while the griddle is heating.

Stir once and wait another minute before placing batter on the griddle.

When the griddle is hot enough that a few drops of water will dance on the surface, reduce the heat to medium and place about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake on the griddle.

Allow to cook for another 1 - 2 minutes until bubbles form on the surface and burst.

Turn pancake and cook for about 1/2 the time of the first side until the are golden brown.

Remove and top with butter and maple syrup.
