  • 10 oz by weight all purpose flour (2 cups if measuring)
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk*


  • In a large bowl, whisk to combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 
  • In another bowl, whisk the eggs with the buttermilk until well combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and stir with a spatula until no flour streaks remain, but the batter still has a few lumps here and there. Do not overmix.
  • Transfer the batter to a measuring cup or other container for easy pouring.
  • Heat a griddle or nonstick skillet over medium heat and pour a few tablespoons** of pancake batter onto the griddle for each pancake.
  • Cook for a couple minutes, until you see bubbles form on top. This is your indication to flip!
  • Cook for another minute on the other side, then repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Serve the pancakes with orange honey butter or maple syrup, or whatever you desire. Enjoy!


 *Both liquid buttermilk and dry buttermilk powder work well here. If using dry buttermilk, mix water with the eggs, per the instructions.
**You can do more or less, as desired. Make them whatever size you'd like.
