Are you like me? You sorta have a love hate relationship with pancakes?  I love buttermilk pancakes but hate what they do. I feel like every time I eat them I need to immediately run to the gym.

But I don’t let that stop me from whipping up a batch.  These have been in the family for years, so they have become a favorite family tradition recipe.

Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes

The best part about these Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes is they are easy to make and taste like you spent all day making them.  The trick is to make the batter with the buttermilk the day before. You want to let the batter sit in the buttermilk overnight to absorb the buttermilk flavor. This gives it a homemade flavor that really sets the pancakes apart from regular pancake mix.

Make your family happy and try a batch! You will love it!

Be sure to add butter on top of each pancake when it comes off the skillet. The butter will melt down into the pancakes giving them extra flavor. Keep them warm in the oven until they are ready to serve.

Top with warm maple syrup.

    Oh my! Now I want pancakes for dinner 🙂 I have to admit I always make mine from the box, the one that you only have to add water. But I’ll try it with the Bisquick! They look so much better than mine!

    Have a great week!

      Bisquick is great, but you could probably use the box mix you have been using and add buttermilk instead of water, if you prefer. 🙂
