Delicious, fluffy, mouth watering pancakes for the win! [img src=”” width=”800″ height=”600″ class=”aligncenter size-full” title=”pancakes”]
  • 2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp sugar or 1 tbsp stevia
  • Zest of 1 large lemon
  • 3.5 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 3 tbsp melted butter plus extra to coat your skillet

  1. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda & sugar or stevia in a medium bowl to combine.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, vanilla extract, eggs, lemon zest and melted butter.
  3. Add flour mixture to the buttermilk mixture and mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Allow the batter to sit for about 5 minutes. It should be fluffy and a little thick (not runny or watery). If the batter is too thick, you can add a little more buttermilk.
  5. Heat a large skillet or griddle and grease with extra butter.
  6. I use one medium-large soup ladle full of batter for each pancake. Cook each pancake until bubbles begin to appear – then flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
