Aunt Clara's Buttermilk Pancakes

Aunt Clara's Buttermilk Pancakes


5 people made this

This pancake recipe was handed down to me by my Great Aunt Clara. The only instruction apart from the ingredients list was, "keeps well in a sealed jar". This pancake batter doubles well and gets eaten up right away, so no need for sealed jars!!! The main thing to remember when making these pancakes is: don't overmix!!! You should always have lumps in the batter.

LDeane Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

Serves: 3 

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 dessertspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Whisk together first three ingredients in large bowl. Add dry ingredients, sifting if necessary. Stir in just until combined, leaving batter lumpy.
  2. Cook on frypan, turning when bubbles begin to break surface of pancakes. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
  3. A nice accompaniment would be bacon and fresh or tinned fruit. And definitely coffee!!!
