Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes


I made pancakes a few weeks back, and they were beautiful. I got the “OMG how did you make them so perfect” comments. So i thought, “why not just do a post?”. Smart right?



People prefer to grab a pancake mix off the shelves (I used to do that), which is okay, but making them from scratch is “okayer”.

To make this you need the following:


  1. 1.5 Cups of Flour
  2. 3 Tbsps of Melted Butter
  3. 1.25 Cups of Milk
  4. 3 Tsps of Baking Powder
  5. 1 Tbsps Sugar
  6. 1 Tsps Salt
  7. 1 Egg

Notice there are 7 ingredients haha, seven the perfect number; perfect buttermilk pancakes.

If you use this exact recipe, it yields 14 pancakes, well I have 13 in the photo cause I ate one while I made them.

NB: When making this you really can just throw everything in the bowl and mix. it should take you less than 10 minutes, trust me.

How to make it? Easy!

  1. In a bowl combine your egg, flour, baking powder, milk, salt, sugar and melted butter. Mix thoroughly with a whisk. And batter is ready.
  2. That’s all. I’m serious.

But wait, how I get the round shape? When you are pouring your batter in the medium heated pan, pour it in one exact spot, so the impact spreads into an almost or perfect circle.

I had mine with fruits and scrambled eggs (not pictured). Beautiful Init?

    Sorry for too much questions. What kind of butter because some people might think margarine as butter… Just saying

    Regards, Sepi


    1. Tobi says:

      Real butter, not margarine. Margarine is kinda processed but butter is made from cows milk.

    and you used olive oil but not too much abi?

    Regards, Sepi


    1. Tobi says:

      Not too much. About four table spoons. Shouldn’t be too oily.

  6. sepi4real@gmail.com says:

    Do you buy the butter melted like that or you boil it?

      I usually buy normal butter, then melt it myself. Microwave or in a pan. Anyone that suits you is fine.
