Classic and delicious, old-fashioned Buttermilk pancakes.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 Tb sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tb extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/4 c buttermilk
  • butter or oil for cooking


  1. To begin, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar together in a bowl. Give it a stir with a whisk to combine. Set that aside for a moment.
  2. In your mixing bowl, beat 2 eggs. Add in the extra virgin olive oil and the buttermilk. Mix until this is just combined and smooth.
  3. To make the pancakes, heat your griddle over medium heat. (I use an electric griddle set to 350 degrees.) Lightly coat the griddle with butter or oil (whichever you prefer) and using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, portion out the pancakes, giving them plenty of room to "grow."
  4. Cook until the pancakes are bubbling on top, and slightly dry in the edges. This will take 2-4 minutes depending on how hot your griddle is. Carefully flip the pancakes and cook them on the other side until golden.
  5. Repeat with all of the batter.
