These light and fluffy giant buttermilk vanilla pancakes are just like my Grandma Janet (Granny Janny) used to make when I stayed with her as a kid and I always loved them, you will too!
What You'll Need
- Flour - All purpose flour is perfect for these pancakes.
- Sugar - The perfect amount to sweeten it up.
- Baking Powder - For fluffy pancakes!
- Baking Soda - Another ingredient to get those pancakes fluffy!
- Salt - Just a pinch to balance and heighten the flavors.
- Buttermilk or buttermilk substitute - To add a hint of tanginess.
- Milk - Great balance for the wet ingredients.
- Eggs - The fresher the better.
- Butter - Unsalted is perfect.
- Vanilla Extract - To get the best flavor in these cakes.
How To Make These Pancakes
- In a large mixing bowl combine all of the dry ingredients including the all-purpose flour, confectioners sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In another mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients including the buttermilk, milk, beaten eggs, melted butter, and the vanilla extract. Set both bowls aside.
- Heat your skillet or griddle to medium high heat and coat the cooking surface with oil using a basting brush to coat evenly.
- When the skillet or griddle is fully heated, pour the wet ingredients into the large mixing bowl of dry ingredients.
- Use a spoon or fork to mix the batter just enough to incorporate all of the ingredients but do not over-mix the batter.
- Use a measuring cup (½ cup) to pour the batter in heaping ½ cup portions, or a ladle, and cook the pancakes until both sides are golden brown.
- Serve the pancakes immediately, while nice and hot.
- Add your favorite fruit or syrup.
