Best Pancakes Ever

This is the recipe I get asked for most often. People think it’s a big family secret that I hold dear and will never share. Not so! – Here it is: they are easy and delicious!

Most of my favourite recipes are a result of trial and error.

I cook breakfast pretty much every day and sometimes people are here for several days, so I need to have a good variety of breakfast options.

People ask for pancakes ALL the time. And when I serve them, they’re ALL gone. It is the recipe I get asked for most often.  ALL the people who ate these pancakes say that they’re the best ever!

I tried a lot of different recipes but this is the one that’s stuck. The 2 secrets are the buttermilk, which gives them a really lovely texture and flavour – and making the batter well ahead of time. I make mine the night before and leave it covered in the fridge overnight.

The basis of the recipe is from The Food Network.

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • tspn baking powder
  • ½ tspn salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tson vanilla
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter melted
  • cooking spray for the griddle/pan


  • In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients
  • In a jug beat the eggs, vanilla and buttermilk and whisk it til the eggs are incorporated.
  • Add melted butter.
  • Combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. It will be a lumpy batter - DO NOT overmix!
  • Let the batter sit for at least 30 minutes. I make mine the night before - it saves time in the morning PLUS it gives the ingredients time to do their magic.
  • Spray your griddle or pan with cooking spray and add ⅓ cup sized dollops of batter on the griddle. Press several blueberries into the top of each pancake before flipping.
  • Cook for at least 3 minutes per side.
  • Drizzle with maple syrup or my famous hot blueberry sauce and serve!
