Classic Dinner Pancakes


These classic DINNER pancakes are my favorite when we have breakfast for dinner. So soft and fluffy and just begging for maple syrup.


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Separate eggs; beat egg yolks. Sift dry ingredients; add alternately with buttermilk to the beaten egg yolks. Add melted butter. Whisk the egg whites for about a minute and fold into the batter.
  2. Bake on hot griddle (400 degrees) until bubbles rise in the pancakes, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook another 2 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.


I use my Griddler for this so I can see the exact temperature of the griddle. 400 degrees is the magic number – it works beautifully every time. It’s one of the higher settings, so if you’re using a skillet I’d set it at medium-high or high.
