50 Cookbooks ~ Martha Stewart's Buttermilk Pancakes



The Book: The Best of Martha Stewart Living Favorite Comfort food

From: Jay (former supervisor) "Martha Stewart and comfort foods. What could be better? Thank you for jumping into some new challenges this year. You've done a great job with your new responsibilities."

Now, this cookbook I have made a few recipes from. Everything from Coq au Vin to chocolate bread pudding.

I have made these pancakes twice now, and changed it both times. I think I will be changing it again. The first time I only had 1 cup of buttermilk, the second time I used all skim milk. Next time I will cut back on the milk/buttermilk. As you can see from my photos. The batter is quite thin, this happened both times.

I have been tweaking this recipe for awhile now, and am happy with the results.  The batter is thicker due to the fact that I have reduced the liquid ingredients.  These pancakes have a nice height to them and are  fluffy.  Do not over mix the batter, it will have small lumps.  Once you flip over your pancakes do not press on them with a spatula.  This prevents them from rising and becoming fluffy. 

Buttermilk Pancakes

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon. salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
2 tbs. unsalted butter melted

Heat a heavy skillet until very hot. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the eggs, milk, and butter; whisk to combine. The batter will have small to medium lumps.
Heat the oven to 175. As you are heating up your griddle add a small amount of butter. 
Once the skillet is hot. Pour a small amount of batter (I think my ladle is about 1/4 of a cup). When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on the bottom about 1 minute.
Repeat with the remaining batter. Place the finished pancakes on a heat-proof plate in the oven.

I have to confess that I use a mix for pancake. Although I LOVE homemade buttermilk pancakes, I eat pancakes so rarely that when I want some I usually want them IMMEDIATELY! It's often when I need some comfort food and don't have the energy to cook. My little box of mix has lasted a couple years!
