Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

Yesterday was IHOP free pancake day: an amazing day of the year. I haven't eaten at an IHOP in ages, but given that it was my day off, I thought pancakes still sounded like a fabulous idea.

These pancakes are extremely light and fluffy. They taste like the ones you would get at a place like IHOP, and they go perfectly with real maple syrup. Best of all, the ratios are equal numbers of everything, and are therefore super super easy to remember.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk (maybe a little more to the right consistency)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 Tbsp sugar (I always add just a little bit more butter and sugar)
  1. Mix together all dry ingredients
  2. Add egg, butter and buttermilk, mixing gently. Don't remove all the lumps
  3. Cook pancakes on heated pan. Flip when bubbles form on one side and stay (just like normal pancake instructions)
