Print Recipe


  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 Cups buttermilk
  • 2 Large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup salted butter melted
  • 2 Tbsp sprinkles plus more for serving


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Lightly whisk the eggs, then add the eggs, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla to the dry ingredients.
  • Whisk until you have a thick, but pourable batter. If you want thinner pancakes you can add a bit more milk.
  • Stir in the sprinkles.
  • Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat your electric or stovetop griddle to medium heat. It is ready when you sprinkle a bit of water on the surface and it sizzles and evaporates right away.
  • Lightly butter the griddle, then pour the pancake onto the hot surface. I use 1/3 cup measuring cup, but you can make them bigger or smaller as you like.
  • Let the pancakes cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the edges are starting to set and you begin to see bubbles on the surface.
  • Flip the pancakes and cook a few mintues more then remove to a serving plate to serve.


You can keep the pancakes warm as you are cooking them by placing them on a baking sheet in a 225°F oven and cover with tin foil or a clean tea towel.
If you don't have buttermilk you can replace with an equal part milk and add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
