There’s something special about making homemade pancakes for the family especially on the weekends! I’ve developed the perfect peanut butter and jelly buttermilk pancake recipe that really hits the spot. You can use whole wheat four like I’ve done today, or substitute with all purpose flour. Either way, you get a beautiful fluffy pancake recipe!

How To Make The Best Pancakes!

pancake recipe

  1. To make the perfect pancakes, you wan to start with a nice non-stick skillet.
  2. Preheat your skillet for a couple minutes before adding your pancake batter.
  3. Plan on your first pancake to be just a tester pancake. This is to test the heat of your skillet and see how long the pancake will take to cook. I generally discard the first tester pancake. Make it small.
  4. A good rule of thumb when cooking your pancake, is when the pancake starts to bubble up on the fist side, it’s about ready to flip!
  5. Cook pancakes in skillet until golden brown and cooked through in the center.

How To Serve Pancakes

  1. If serving for guests, I enjoy stacking my pancakes on a cake plate.
  2. Serve pancakes with a nice side of fruit.
  3. Drizzle with a little pure maple syrup and enjoy!

    I checked the ingredients in the Similac and there’s way too many un-pronouncable ingredients and too few Vitamins for me to feel comfortable with. Recipe loos good though.

    This look so yummy! Can I follow this recipe exactly without the 2 packets Similac Go & Grow Mix-Ins; or will the measurements of the other ingredients?

      Johanna says:

      Sorry, just noticed my incomplete thought, a year and some change later lol! If I omit the Similac, will it affect the measurements of the other ingredients?
