    Hi Susan. Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes look great. Not only are they my favorite type of pancakes but it is the only use of buttermilk that appeals to me. Still, I always learn something useful from your recipes and believe it or not I was unaware that buttermilk comes in powdered form. Now that I know perhaps I will discover other ways to like it !

    • They are a big hit, all the time, in our home Paul. I love it that I can offer that to you through my recipes. Powdered buttermilk is a great addition to any pantry. I find so many uses for it. 🙂

  • Jason Butler

    Seeing that I’m hungry right now I shouldn’t have browsed this post. I’m now in the mood for pancakes. They look very good.

    • LOL, Me too and they are my pictures Jason. Give them a try. I know you’d love them. 🙂

  • Jacqueline Gum

    Looks wonderful…I used to make them all the time for guests, but rarely for myself! I found that adding a teaspoon of vanilla makes them taste a tad richer… though they are fantastic with it as well. Good share! My mouth is watering!

    • Hi Jaquie, Thanks. I do that too when I use milk instead of buttermilk. It really does add a nice touch to the taste. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Yummy!! We all love pancakes and they definitely bring on wonderful memories.

    • They do indeed Catarina. I think that is pretty universal. 🙂

  • Shirla

    Powdered buttermilk?! Who would have thought, right? I never liked buying buttermilk at the grocery store for only one recipe. Way Cool Susan!!! I can hardly wait to try this recipe.

    • Hi Shirla, Yep, it is really great stuff. We use it all the time for many other types of recipes. Enjoy the recipe and let me know how it turned out. 🙂

  • My husband is a Pancake eater and I do use powdered buttermilk also. I must admit, it is a rare occasion for me to make pancakes lol. Dinners are no problem for me, even complex recipes. I’m not a morning person, so he has to fend for himself.
    But, on the other hand, I could make pancakes for dinner can’t I?

    Be well,


    • Hi Donna, Pancakes for dinner is an awesome idea. We do it all the time. Partly because we love breakfast foods. That said, give this a whirl, your husband would love you for it… LOL.

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    Those look quite tasty, and I bet they would go great with the Cookie Butter I just discovered at Trader Joe’s. Everyone used to love my grandma’s pancakes, but who knows where the recipe went. Not to mention she could make them out at our cabin on a wood burning cook stove 🙂

    • Oh my goodness, Cookie Butter? That would be way cool on these pancakes Jeri. I remember my grandma’s pancakes too, and how funny, she used to make them on a wood burning stove too. 🙂

  • Adrienne

    Oh yummy Susan, they look delicious. I LOVE pancakes and the only kind I admit have been from a box. I don’t make them anymore, lazy I guess plus I do not need to be eating anything like that on a regular basis. Yeah, I’m one of those people that if it’s on my plate I’m going to eat it all. I blame my Mom for that. LOL!!!

    I’ll have to share this recipe with her too because we’ll make breakfast and have it at dinner time. Just to change things up so the next time we can make pancakes instead of eggs.


    • They are really quite good Adrienne. I’m from the clean your plate club too. I too blame my mom for that… LOL. We have made these pancakes for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. They are good just about anytime. I do hope you and your mom enjoy this recipe of mine. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    Pancakes or waffles are a favorite for breakfast night around here. We tend to use normal buttermilk though. Can usually find it in pints and we use it all in one go since we tend to double the recipe.

    Of course we also like to use the buttermilk when we make waffles as well. Just makes fo an all aroind great flavor in the mix.

    • Hi Jon, I wish I could find fresh buttermilk in pints but alas it is not to be. However, the powdered buttermilk is really just as good and can be easily stored in our pantry for the spur of the moment needs. You gotta love that. 🙂

  • They look great, I have two teen boys that would love these. Milk never lasts long in our house so powdered is great.

    • Hi Joyce, These pancakes disappear when we have teen visiting. we find we need a triple batch when they’re here… LOL. Enjoy. 🙂

  • maxwell ivey

    hi susan; yes we had buttermilk pancakes growing up too. or at least we did during the times we were living at home. My grandmother mary nanny wagner use to make them for a whole house full. and for me I don’t care what they look like as long as they taste good. In houston there is a guy who has become semi famous because he makes pancakes with elaborate designs in them. I’m told some ar even portraits. and just a fun fact here. when we were still traveling with the carnival the best funnel cake mix came right out of a box of pancake mix. Of course, the fun of a funnel cake is th novelty of getting one at th fair or the rodeo. smile thanks for th recipe and th memories. take care, max

    • I’m with you on the appearance Max. It’s the taste that matters. It would be fun to see what those elaborate designed pancake look like.

      What a fun fact, out of a box… that is too funny. You’re right, it really is all about the novelty in that venue. 🙂

  • crystal Ross

    Yum !you are making me want to eat some right now! My friend and I shared a huge order the other day and we where in heaven! Love when food brings good memories! 🙂 from bhb

    • Hi Crystal, That is way cool. My pictures worked… LOL. I love it when food evoked good memories. I did the same thing with these. There is not way iI could eat a whole batch. 🙂

  • maxwell ivey

    glad we agree; at one time the box pancake mix was much cheaper than stuff sold specially for funnel cakes. and for good funnel cakes you got to have all the toppings. th pancake guy has been on the news several times so i bet you can find him on google. says he started doing it for the family and it grew into a career. enjoy th pancakes, max

    • I could see that Max. I will definitely try to look that guy up. 🙂

  • Holly Higbee-Jansen

    I never quite understand why the first few pancakes come out looking funky, I think it has something to do with the heat, but not sure. Even if I preheat the pan, I always throw out the first ones. Thanks for the recipe, it is the weekend coming up and I have a huge batch of raspberries ready to go! That would be great!

    • There really isn’t a reason that I have been able to discover. It’s just one of those mysteries. They still taste good, but it’s good that they go on the bottom of the platter and the prettier ones are on top.

      Oh, raspberries would be awesome with these. Will you put the raspberries in to pancakes, make a syrup with them or just on top? 🙂

      • Holly Higbee-Jansen

        I was thinking in the pancakes, but the syrup might be the way to go!

  • Cheryl Therrien

    These look delicious! I must get him to make me some when I visit next time. 🙂

    • Oh, and he would love to do that too Cheryl. He says come on over and he will make you a batch all for you. 🙂

  • Looks yummy! it is always good to take home made stuffs made rather than to eat outside. Good step by step process on how to prepare pancakes..

    • Thanks Tuhin, I agree, homemade anytime is always so much better. 🙂

  • Wonderful recipe 🙂 main thing is all its ingredients are so common and easily available in every part of the world. Thanks for sharing it is a must-try for me

    • That’s true Muba, It makes it a recipe anyone can make at anytime. I love that about it. 🙂

  • Oh how I love pancakes haven’t had them in ages

    • Oh, then you must give these a whirl Jo-Ann.I know you’d love them. 🙂

  • Susan — I could eat those pancakes right off the page! I don’t think I’ve ever seen powered buttermilk but then I haven’t looked. Will try these. Today I had a Belgium waffle with berries and syrup. Hadn’t had one of those in a while either. Yum!

    • Aw that is an awesome compliment, thank you Jeannette. I love the ease of having powdered buttermilk in the house. I use it all the time in various recipes. Your Belgium waffles with berries sounds delicious. I haven’t made them in a wile. I think I may have to do that. 🙂

  • Wow Susan,
    We haven’t had homemade pancakes for quite some time now. That picture inspires me to have them for breakfast in the morning. 😀

    • Hi Bill, We love pancakes and find any excuse to make them for that reason. I do hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. 🙂

  • Hi Susan,

    I love pancakes too! However since my kids have all grown we don’t make them much anymore. But I am sorry to say I made them from a box 🙁 But now since I have this awesome, easy recipe I think I’ll try it this weekend. Sunday morning’s always a great day for pancakes. Thanks for that 🙂

    • Hi Elizabeth and welcome, It’s funny how that works sometimes. I know you’ll have fun making AND easting these pancakes. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    Things have been so hectoic lately that I think a nice slow breakfast is in order. Think I’ll start with these guys…my mouth is watering already.

    • Hi Debra, We love making these pancakes on a day we need to take a break from life. Enjoy. 🙂

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    Can’t go wrong with pancakes! In fact I’m going to heat up some in a sec that I previously froze 🙂

    • That is so true. Many don’t realize they can freeze the leftovers for later. They are really are fun to have to hand like that. 🙂
