Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

Here is an amazing fluffy buttermilk pancakes recipe that is so easy to make and very versatile. These are perfect for Fat Tuesday Pancakes. You can add blueberries, chocolate chips, or whatever flavors you like to the batter. I serve the pancakes plain with blueberries on the side drizzled with pure maple syrup.

I love these pancakes because they are moist and  flavorful, but not too sweet. I like my pancakes to have just enough sweetness that is enhanced by maple syrup and fresh fruit but doesn’t taste like cake. I like to make a batch of these delicious buttermilk pancakes and store the leftovers (if there are any) in the refrigerator. The next day I pop them in the toaster oven and lightly toast them to warm them.

When I don’t have buttermilk, I use 2 cups of whole milk mixed with a teaspoon of lemon juice and let sit for 5 minutes to duplicate the buttermilk taste. The pancake batter is thinner and the pancakes are not quite as fluffy as when buttermilk is used but they are just as delicious.

Here is the recipe:
