Buttermilk Pancakes on Family Day Weekend

It’s family day weekend where we live! This means that the following will happen over the next 3 days:

  1. Tomorrow morning there will be pancakes.
  2. We will play with trucks and balls and rings.
  3. There are books to read.
  4. We have songs to sing.
  5. There’s definitely running to do.
  6. We may enjoy movies.
  7. There will be a walk in the sunshine.
  8. We will just be ‘family’.

If need a delicious, easy recipe for pancakes for this weekend this one is fantastic! This is so easy and very tasty. You’ll never need a box again. I originally got this recipe from a Jamie Oliver cookbook, Jamie’s Food Revolution. I have changed one thing. I’ve substituted buttermilk for the regular milk as it gives the pancakes a much fuller flavor. Enjoy!

Buttermilk Pancakes


  • 1 cup/mug of buttermilk
  • 1 cup/mug of cake flour
  • 1 egg


  • Whisk the ingredients together until well combined.
  • Heat a pan to a medium-medium high heat.
  • Before the pan gets too hot add a small amount of butter and make sure it covers the pan well.
  • Pour small amounts of the batter on the pan.
  • Leave the pancake until the top begins to bubble.
  • Flip the pancakes.
  • Remove when completely cooked through.

Extra Information:

  • Jamie says in the original recipe that this recipe works with any mug. It is true. I’ve used mugs, cups and exact measurements. As long as the flour/milk ratio is the same it turns out beautifully.
  • You can make these with regular milk. They will be flatter and less flavorful but still tasty. I do recommend the Buttermilk if it’s at all possible. So much better in my opinion.
  • You do need to use cake/pastry flour for these. It helps with the fluffiness factor as it has ingredients in it to help with rising. If you use all-purpose you’ll wind up with something similar to a crepe.
  • Once you flip the pancakes it takes very little time to cook through.
  • We love these with warmed maple syrup.
