Best Buttery Buttermilk Pancakes Put all ingredients in one bowl. Whisk by hand or use an electric mixer on low until batter is smooth - no lumps. Use 1/2 cup batter per pancake. Cook on low to medium (setting 2 on electric cooktops). You will have an 7-8” pancake. Flip when raw side is bubbly or takes on a dull sheen. Cook 2 more minutes. Serve with butter and favorite topping like maple syrup or fruit preserves. Enjoy!
