buttermilk pancakes with maple flavored syrup

Its been a long time since I posted anything here; just got busy with life and family and kids!  Now that I’m back, lets start off with a simple breakfast recipe.

You don’t need pancake mix or boxed powder to satisfy your cravings for pancakes.  In only a couple of minutes you can make your own batter from scratch.  Mmmm …

I love simple, no-fail recipes.  This pancake recipe is one of them.  It makes a lot of servings, very good for breakfast/brunch parties. I like to freeze the leftover pancakes.  One of my sons is crazy about pancakes, he can literally eat them everyday, so huge batches of fresh warm pancakes are more than welcome in our house.

If you want to freeze the pancakes for a quick future breakfast, just let the pancakes cool down completely, place them in zip lock bag, and freeze.

Serve these with your choice of fruits and syrup.  I made my own maple flavored syrup.  It literally takes 3 mins to make it, even though it takes a lot of sugar, but on the bright side it doesn’t contain any added preservatives like the store bought ones.

Ideally, I like to refrigerate the syrup; the feel of cold syrup on fresh warm pancakes is just priceless 🙂

For the pancakes you will need:
source: add a pinch

  • 4 cups flour, self-rising
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 5 tbsp butter, melted

In a large bowl whisk the dry ingredients.

In another bowl mix the wet ingredients.

Add wet ingredients to dry until combined.

Heat non stick pan over medium heat.

Pour 1/4 cup scoops of batter.

Flip once to cook the other side.

For maple flavored syrup you will need:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (you can sub vanilla if you like)

Pour brown sugar, white sugar, and water in a pot.

Cook on high heat for 3 mins.

Turn off the heat and add maple syrup.

Serve with the pancakes, store the leftovers in an airtight jar and refrigerate.

Enjoy =)

  1. I didn’t know you could make your own maple flavored syrup at home! These look gorgeous, and I love that you can make a big batch and freeze for later use; especially with those rushed weekday mornings!
