Minerva Dairy Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe
Prep Time:30 minutes
Servings:4-6 servings
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Minerva Dairy Maple Syrup Butter (plus more for spreading on pancakes)
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  1. Melt the butter and set aside to cool down slightly.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt to a large mixing bowl. Use a whisk to combine all dry ingredients well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, vanilla, ground cinnamon and egg. Whisk to combine. Add melted butter and whisk again.
  4. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, whisking and stirring to mix it all together. Once it's combined, stop mixing. If you over-mix, your pancakes will become too dense.
  5. Set pancake batter aside and heat a large skillet griddle over medium-low heat. Add a little bit of butter to the preheated griddle and spread it out.
  6. Use a 1/4 or 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop the pancake batter onto the griddle or skillet. Slowly pour it onto the surface, circling outwards to make a round circle.
  7. Let the pancakes cook about 2-3 minutes. You'll notice bubbles popping up on the surface of the pancake, if the edges look set, carefully flip pancakes over. Cook another 2 minutes on the other side.
  8. Remove to a plate and cover with a kitchen towel. Alternatively, you can place the pancakes on a baking sheet and keep it in a low heat oven (175-200 degrees), until you're ready to serve.
