This is my go-to recipe when my kids have friends sleep over, and I’ve made these pancakes on several school mornings as well! I also use store-bought box mix, but when I serve these homemade pancakes, my family always knows instantly! They love them!
I make this recipe the night before and simply give the mixture a stir the next morning before cooking. This recipe keeps nicely in a sealed-tight container for a few days, if you want to double the ingredients for more than one batch.
My kids tend to make these “breakfast” pancakes more like “dessert” with all the chocolate chips they add, but they are still optional! I have also added a teaspoon of vanilla on occasion, just for something different.
2 cups flour
¼ cup sugar
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
½ cup melted butter
Mini chocolate chips (optional)
Mix eggs, buttermilk and butter together. Whisk in all other ingredients. Mix can be slightly lumpy. Add a little more buttermilk or flour to reach desired pancake consistency/fluffiness for your family’s preference. Cook on griddle with non-stick spray and enjoy!
