Buttermilk pancakes vs regular
The only difference between buttermilk pancakes and regular pancakes is the buttermilk. I know it sounds ridiculous, but buttermilk affects the texture of pancakes as it breaks down gluten. They turn out to be extra fluffy, light, and soft and they will melt in your mouth. I also love a tangy flavor the buttermilk provides.
Buttermilk Pancake batter from scratch
The secret to perfect buttermilk pancakes is the batter! It should not be too runny because pancakes will spread and won’t fluff up. And if the batter is too thick, you will end with undercooked pancakes.
- First, whisk dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Add the remaining ingredients and mix just until combined. Don’t overmix! A few lumps are fine. The batter must be thick, but if you lift it, it must be able to slowly run off the spoon.
buttermilk substitute for pancakes
For vegan buttermilk pancakes use any plant-based milk and add two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice. Allow it to rest for 15 minutes or until it thickens.
You can also use regular milk like I did for Fluffy pancakes without buttermilk or learn how to make buttermilk at home in 5 minutes.
