Course Breakfast


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • Pure maple syrup


  • Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl together. Use an electric mixer if possible.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk an egg. Add in the buttermilk and the melted butter.
  • Mix in buttermilk egg mixture with dry ingredients until the batter is smooth.
  • Run a stick of butter over a warmed griddle (or a large, flat frying pan.) Be careful not to make it too hot. This will scorch the pancakes.
  • For larger pancakes similar to Cracker Barrel's, pour on a 1/2 cup batter for each pancake (makes about 5)
  • Serve with maple syrup and butter.
