Buttermilk Pancakes

Cooking From: “I need a Feed”

Featured Buttermilk Pancakes myfavouritepastime.com_0467_2We had these pancakes for breakfast today and we absolutely loved them, so I decided to take photos and post the recipe. The original Gluten Free Recipe came from I need a Feed blog. I used all-purpose flour instead of gluten free flour; normal castor sugar instead of coconut palm sugar and normal baking powder instead of the gluten free one. I added ¼ cup more buttermilk than original recipe.

Buttermilk Pancakes myfavouritepastime.com_1437These pancakes are so easy to make (easy is my magic word these days) but they are also pleasant to eat. I have added the recipe to our repertoire of recipes and intend to make them at least once a week. Thank you Nell for this wonderful recipe. I’m sure I shall be browsing your blog for more of your wonderful recipes. For original Gluten Free Recipe, Click here:

    1. […] husband saw the wonderful photo of these pancakes on My Favourite Pastime and had to have them! 🙂 I loved the easy recipe; I modified it to be half whole wheat and to […]

      I also want to try the half-whole wheat version. Thanks for sharing!

  1. My daughter ALWAYS requests pancakes for breakfast, so it’s great to see another recipe out there! I try to make them slightly different from time to time so that we don’t get bored of them!

    1. Hi I bet it’s Belated New Year Greetings. I’m not sure I’ve seen you this year. I also love varying the recipes from time to time. People get tired of the same thing. Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Sorry so long in commenting. These pancakes look wonderful. Yummm…. I can’t wait until Mr. Hubs is off his diet so I can make some of these for both of us.

  3. I’ve just finished breakfast, then saw these….if they were presented to me right now I’d dive right in! Just call me miss Piggy when it comes to pancakes. Wonderful photos and I’m waiting to taste them!! Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Hi Sandy,
      I wish I knew when breakfast was, I could have mailed you some pancakes. I loved these ones. The buttermilk makes a huge difference: fluffy and soft and mmm..delicious! Thanks so much Sandy for your continued support. You are one of the most pleasant and amazing friend I ever met. I hope one day I’ll be able to see you in person. Best wishes to your family and friends. I look forward to posting more of your recipes in future.That bread of yours was a hit! Have a most wonderful weekend!

  4. Hi Rosa,
    Oh my! I just die for pancakes. And buttermilk ones? My absolutely favourites in the entire world!!!!
    Easy as they seem I still have a question. How did you manage to take so many photographs (if any) before you had them? Last time I tried, I just could snap a couple of pics with my mobile before they disappeared! Even so, I posted the recipe on the blog but definitely I’ll have to fix that one day (if my pancake eater monsters can wait for a whole photograph session before their breakfast; tough task though 😉 )
    I completely need to try this one. Thanks for sharing another awesome recipe, Liz.

    1. Ha ha and by the way your English is very proficient…I have learnt to be patient because I don’t want to do photography twice. It takes so much of my time I always just want to get it over and done with. My little monsters are not so little (13 and 15) so I can say wait and they wait…grudgingly of course but they wait. The photographs took me about 15 minutes, It was one of those miraculous days…I am hopeless with cameras, I just point and shoot. Thank God someone automated cameras. Thanks so much for visiting me. I love your website. One day I shall visit you and bake with you (God knows when!) Have a lovely weekend my dear!

        1. Head straight up with a shocked look. Hhmm no. Silently steps out of blog. Eat myself? Shakes little piggy head. Nope. Nothing to see here. XOXO – Bacon

  5. Oh, I am drooling on my computer screen again. Will need to wipe it with some tissue papers. Someone turn away the screen from me!
    Oh, melty butter!
    Oh, Pancake, come to me…!

    1. Hey Hari you gave me a good laugh. Food photos are addictive. I love food photos! I hope you’re having a great weekend. Best wishes!
      Liz

  6. These look yummy. Great photos too! My kids certainly love pancake mornings. I meant to make some this week and didn’t get to it, maybe this weekend. Time for a double batch and freeze some for quick weekday breakfasts.

    1. Hi Ngan,
      Oh yes savoury pancakes can be served for dinner. I used to eat pancake dinners and lunches in the Netherlands. They have great and huge pancakes over there. Thanks and have a lovely weekend!

  7. We have a couple of local restaurants that make some excellent buttermilk pancakes – but I’m going to give these I try & then I won’t have to leave the house to enjoy some light and fluffy buttermilk pancakes!

    1. Hi Cecile,
      I always seem to make my own pancakes because I can control what I add to them and they taste far much better. These ones are very light and fluffy and easy to make!
      Liz

  8. I’ll have that! I read a big article once in Cook’s Illustrated about the reasoning behind using baking powder and baking soda when using buttermilk in pancakes. Apparently a little bit under or a little over with the baking soda, and you have a royal disaster.

    Just ate breakfast for dinner, but it was a scrumptious Swiss cheese omelet. For pictures, see my blog . . . soon! ;->

    Virtual hugs,

    Judie

    1. Hi Judie,
      I am glad I didn’t have a royal disaster. The pancakes tasted good. Breakfast for dinner sounds very interesting. Swiss cheese omelette, that sounds delicious. I’m on my way to your blog to taste it right now. Virtual hugs to you!
      Liz

        1. Okay, so coconut sugar it shall be. I might buy myself some just to see how tasty it really is. have a goodnight!
          Lizz

  9. Oh, my!! These are picture perfect!!!! When I was younger I could eat this whole stack. Nowadays, I’m lucky if I can eat 2 or 3. Someone need to give you a big hug and a kiss for the perfect breakfast. 🙂

    1. Oh Richard, thanks so much for the compliments. My daughter just gave me a big hug and a kiss, ha ha. The pancakes tasted really nice. My 13 year old son can eat the whole stack! Have a pleasant Friday!
