Buttermilk Birthday Pancakes


I’ve met people who hate lemons, chocolate, and even cookie dough, but I have never met a single soul who hated sprinkles.  I mean, what’s not to love??





If you’re looking for a light, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth pancake recipe, look no further than these buttermilk beauties.  Toss a handful of colorful sprinkles into the batter and you’ve got the perfect birthday breakfast.  They will make you want to celebrate every day!



These pancakes are particularly good with Vanilla Buttermilk Syrup, which is to die for.  So party like it’s your birthday and treat yourself to this happy breakfast!

  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp clear vanilla


  1. In a medium bowl, sift dry ingredients together. This will help the pancakes have a light and airy texture.
  2. In a small bowl mix beaten egg, buttermilk, and vanilla.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined. DO NOT OVER MIX! The batter will be slightly lumpy, but that’s okay.
  4. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter on a warm, greased skillet and cook on medium heat. The pancakes are ready to flip when small bubbles pop on the surface of the batter and the edges separate from skillet easily. After flipping the pancakes, just let them do their thing. Resist the urge to squish them down or move them around in the pan; this will destroy the air bubbles that make them so fluffy. After they’ve puffed up and are golden on both sides (about 30 seconds) they are ready to go!
