Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat griddle to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons butter; whisk to combine. Batter should have small to medium lumps.

    Advertisement
  • Heat oven to 175 degrees. Test griddle by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If water bounces and spatters off griddle, it is hot enough. Using a pastry brush, brush remaining 1/2 teaspoon of butter or reserved bacon fat onto griddle. Wipe off excess.

  • Using a 4-ounce ladle, about 1/2 cup, pour pancake batter, in pools 2 inches away from one other. Scatter with berries, if using. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.

  • Repeat with remaining batter, keeping finished pancakes on a heatproof plate in oven. Serve with Cranberry Syrup.

Cook's Notes

If serving with bacon, reserve half a teaspoon of bacon drippings to grease the griddle.

Except for the berries, this recipe was published in the 100’s in Gourmet magazine.. While we love this recipe anduse it often, don’t you feel you should give credit to the-original publisher of this recipe? It is a great 5 star recipe, but not a recipe by Martha Stewart/.

Fantastic pancake recipe! The best I’ve ever had, honestly. Only thing I did differently was add chocolate chips. And I also had to use less buttermilk because of altitude here in Tennessee.

It's sad that so many people rave about this recipe, but have it rated at a zero!! Make sure when you make a comment that you give it 5 stars. I have read so many comments stating how amazing this recipe is, giving it all kind of accolades, but leave their comments and then give it a zero (make sure your stars are filled in). The recipe would have been rated higher overall if people would have done that. This is my go to recipe for buttermilk pancakes, simply amazing fluffy pancakes, also agree by letting the baking soda set in the recipe for 5 to 10 minutes before putting your pancakes on the griddle helps. Love mine with blueberries and fresh maple syrup. Give these a try with the buttermilk first, then if you want to substitute if you dare,,,,,,,,,,,you too will have so many requests for this amazing recipe time and time again!!

I have been making this recipe since the recipe was first published in the magazine in 1998. For years, I would buy buttermilk for the recipe, but several years ago, I started substituting 1 cup yogurt and 2 cups of milk so that I didn't need to buy a special ingredient. We always love them with the buttermilk, but with the yogurt/milk they are fantastic! We don't use a 4 oz ladle, but rather a 2 oz ladle. This makes more than enough batter for my family of 4 and we usually have leftover batter for a second morning. This is the best white-flour pancake recipe I have ever used. I don't know why anyone would buy a pancake mix when you can make these.

I used uncultured buttermilk, and the pancakes were thin and rubbery. Perhaps Martha meant to state that the buttermilk should be cultured. If using uncultured buttermilk then the amount should be cut to at least 2 cups instead of 3.

I make and love a similar recipe: I combine milk with white vinegar and set for 5 minutes to "sour". I then combine the dry ingredients. Then I whisk the egg and butter into the soured milk and lastly add the dry ingredients. My measurements are reduced for one - they come out light and fluffy every time.

THIS is the nastiest pancake recipe I’ve ever made. There is NOT enough flour in this recipe. When you weigh out the flour (more accurate than scooping) the pancakes come out in a more gummy, crepe-like consistency. Yet these couldn’t even pass for crepes! They taste like burnt eggs.

This has become my favorite pancake recipe. I've made these over and over for brunches, including today's at a friend's house. Because of the generous buttermilk content, these pancakes have a lovely custardy texture. As long as we don't overcook them. (Undercooking them makes them hard to flip.) I use an electric skillet for consistency. I usually make slightly smaller pancakes than called for; they flip better even if I try to turn them before they're fully set because they fit well on the spatula. We usually have leftovers, which I freeze on a cookie sheet and then slip into freezer bags to warm up for instant pancakes on busy mornings. Raspberries work nearly as well as blueberries, though raspberry pancakes turn out a bit less tidy than the blueberry variation. I usually use brown sugar, and less than the 3 TBS called for; each diner can add as much sweet fruit, jam or syrup as s/he likes. Oh, and I often use 50% to 100% whole wheat flour with good results.

I made these today, following the recipe to the letter--light and fluffy they were not! They were flat and had a raw consistency to them, no matter how long I had them on the griddle. They came out more like crepes. I know that everyone is raving about the fluffiness of these pancakes. I can't attest to that.

I made this recipe this morning and it turned out some delicious pancakes, absolutely perfect. I left out the sugar because we are trying to cut back on sugar and it didn't take away from the flavor one bit. Yielded close to 20 pancakes so we will have the leftovers tomorrow morning. I served with strawberries, bananas, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

I've been making these pancakes for years. No, there is not a mistake in the recipe, they turn out every time. I think perhaps what people are doing wrong is not using full fat buttermilk, or baking powder that is not fresh, or over beating the batter. My batter is never thin and it has never run all over the griddle. They are never not fluffy and everyone whom I've ever made them for thinks they are the best pancakes they have ever had! The only thing I do differently is add 2 tbsp of sugar.

I have made these pancakes numerous times now and they are always well received by one and all. I do not add sugar to the batter and I half the amount of butter and they turn out beautifully . I feel that with the blueberries they do not need extra sugar also one adds maple syrup before devouring so no need for sugar. Depending on what brand of buttermilk you use will also determine the amount you will need for your batter. I have found they vary quite a bit, also remember to shake container.

Let the batter sit for at LEAST 10 minutes before using. This allows the baking powder to activate creating a fluffier pancake. I've let batter sit for 1/2 hour sometimes and the results are amazing!

I made this recipe the other night for breakfast for dinner night. These were the best, fluffiest pancakes ever. This was my second attempt at making pancakes (my first being 15 years prior and a failed one either being too burned or not cooked or very dense). Ever since then I was queen of the waffle maker. I liked the helpful tips about not over mixing and buttering the pan before the batter goes on but after the pan is hot. Very helpful for novice cooks like myself.

Made this in the middle of a play date so accidentally added only 2 cups of buttermilk instead of 3 and they came out great! Looked a bit thick on the pan but delicious and fluffy!!

I used Kate's brand buttermilk which was pretty thick. The pancake batter was not runny, though a little thinner than from a boxed mix. The pancakes were the best we had in recent memory. Very fluffy and airy, not thick and dense like from a boxed mix. Almost spongy. The two eggs we used were a bit on the small side - I think it might have even been better with jumbo eggs. But overall, great recipe and will use again anytime we have buttermilk around.

Really a great recipe! A keeper for sure. I have made this recipe about four times now, it makes a ton of pancakes so great for feeding a lot of people. Also I recently tried making this Gluten free by swapping the regular flour out with all purpose GF flour and subbed the buttermilk with a mixture of almond milk and yogurt (didn't have any buttermilk=( ) , they were not as fluffy this way but still very delicious.

My theory is that whomever doesn't like this recipe must have a problem with technique. These are the best pancakes I've ever had (I do add vanilla extract and sometimes a little almond extract for flavor). Do not overmix (lumpy good) and do use whole fat buttermilk. I am an experienced baker and my husband is a chef and we both agree.

I made this recipe for my family Christmas morning and they loved it. The pancakes came out perfectly fluffy, light and tender. I added a little orange zest and they were a hit. I think the trick to the fluffiness is to keep the batter lumpy. I used a whisk to mix the dry ingredients but switched to a rubber spatula to mix the batter just until everything is incorporated.

I can't understand what people are doing wrong when they say the pancakes come out runny or crepe-like. Here are some pointers I've learned over the years of making pancakes: 1) let the egg and milk get to room temperature before mixing the batter, 2) make sure it's full fat buttermilk, 3) mix the egg, milk, and butter together before it goes into the dry mixture. Then, I usually let the batter sit while I make bacon on the griddle because it seems to help give it fluff time.

I agree with a reader that said these were much like a crepe. I like a more hearty pancake, will keep this on hand for oatmeal pancake which may give it that heartiness I'm looking for. Bit of a gooey texture in the middle, even when I left it on for extended time. Evenness of color best in non stick. My cast iron didn't even well. Overall the entire family.

I made these from Pinterest without realizing they were Martha Stewart pancakes. I made them for my mother. We loved the flavor (I added cinnamon and vanilla extract) but they were NOT fluffy at all. I followed the rest to a 'T' and didn't over mix, etc. I looked and read one review here and the person said they liked Joy of Cooking version better. What I found is they add slightly more baking powder. They also have slightly less liquid. I agree Joy of Cooking might have a slight edge.

I grew up in a family in which ready made or almost ready made pancake mix was the norm. However, my wife grew up in a family where almost everything was made from scratch. This is my first attempt at fresh pancakes and this recipe was perfect. My wife had the pleasure of having the first one and it brought back memories of her childhood. The pancakes were light and fluffy. The only thing she would change and I might experiment next time, is a touch of vanilla extract.

After making an entire batch, I can only second previous comments here that the resulting pancakes aren't fluffy at all, no matter how long they're cooked.

This is a good recipe, just too much buttermilk in my estimation. I doubled the recipe and used 4 cups total. (I also added a teaspoon of vanilla and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the batter). Our pancakes do look like the photo and tasted fantastic. Someone told me once to use room temperature eggs and milk for pancake batter, but using the melted butter really seemed to eliminate the need for that. These are beautiful!

Some people were posting that these are gummy. Either the batter has been over stirred or the griddle is not hot enough.

This is my absolute favorite pancake recipe. I go to my friends' in rural Arkansas at least once a month and make these for all of us. I do add a tiny bit of nutmeg and cinnamon to the batter, as well as a dab of vanilla but that is the only change I make. I also warm the buttermilk slightly prior to mixing it with the butter so that the butter doesn't curdle. Then I fold that mixture into the egg and mix wet/dry. One friend said, "these pancakes taste like french toast!" Best recipe.

We thought these turned out very good...not at all thin or flat as some people have experienced. With only 2 cups of flour to 3 cups of buttermilk, I thought the batter would be runny, but it wasn't. In fact, it was very thick. I used real buttermilk; maybe people are having issues with thin batter and flat pancakes because they are using milk and vinegar/lemon juice as a substitute for buttermilk? Milk vinegar/lemon juice is actually sour milk, not the same as buttermilk.

Haven't tried this recipe yet, but for convenience, i use a couple of teaspoons of white vinegar with this much milk, instead of the buttermilk. And i use self-rising flour, instead of getting out the extra baking powders. I've found it also improves the pancake texture if you let the mixture rest for about half an hour before use.

I thought the taste of these were good. I used the powdered buttermilk and I had to use my mixer because they were really chunky and added a lot more flour until I got my desired thickness, but I would make them again.
