Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes

We have been buying Eggo brand chocolate chip pancakes for years now. I have no idea why. My boys stopped eating them a few years ago for whatever reason, but my daughter is still in love with them. I think it is a habit when I go to the store, only to think that we are out of pancakes. This recently just stopped, however, as my coworker was talking about how he batches out a bunch of homemade pancakes every weekend and freezes them. Genius. I was now curious why I never stopped to think about doing that as after all I’ve made pancakes, and homemade waffles in the past. Now it was time to batch these out on a Sunday morning with my son.

This is not only a money saver, but you know what you are putting into the mix, and trust me (sorry Eggo), these are so much better.

Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes

Let’s get started.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • cooking spray or additional butter for your skillet
  • chocolate chips or blueberries, optional

Start by adding the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl, and give them a good mix. add the wet ingredients, and slowly stir to incorporate all of the ingredients. It’s OK to have small lumps. Let the mixture rest for about 5 minutes before ladling them onto a hot skillet.

Spray cooking spray, or use additional butter to lightly lube your skillet.

Ladle on about 1/2 cup of the buttermilk pancake mix onto the skillet. Top with chocolate chips if you desire (the demand was clear from my daughter). Cook for a few minutes, lifting up to check for a nice golden brown. Once golden, flip them over, and cook for another couple of minutes.

Remove, repeat, and serve.

If you are freezing them, lay the cooked pancakes onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let cool, then stack them and place in a sealable bag.

When you are wanting to reheat, simply place three on a plate, and place in the microphone for about 60 seconds, or until heated through.

Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
