TRADITIONAL FLUFFY BUTTERMILK PANCAKES

 

Makes about 8 3-inch pancakes

 

My friend Robert called asking for a good buttermilk pancake recipe – he said he was very surprised not to find one on my site. I do have one for whole grain pancakes, but if you’re looking for a traditional buttermilk pancake, this one works just fine. It can easily be doubled if you have serving a larger crowd. 

 Download TRADITIONAL FLUFFY BUTTERMILK PANCAKES recipe


1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons granulated sugar

½ teaspoon table salt

½ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup buttermilk

¼ cup milk (plus an extra tablespoon or so if batter is too thick)

1 large egg, separated

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

vegetable oil (for brushing griddle)

 

1.  Mix dry ingredients in medium bowl. Pour buttermilk and milk into 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup. Whisk in egg white; mix yolk with melted butter, then stir into milk mixture. Dump wet ingredients into dry ingredients all at once; whisk until just mixed.

 

2.  Meanwhile, heat griddle or large skillet over strong medium-high heat. Brush griddle generously with oil. When water splashed on surface confidently sizzles, pour batter, about 1/4 cup at a time, onto griddle, making sure not to overcrowd. When pancake bottoms are brown and top surface starts to bubble, 2 to 3 minutes, flip cakes and cook until remaining side has browned, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Re-oil the skillet and repeat for the next batch of pancakes.
