Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

And just like that, its holiday season and 2019 is on our doorstep!

I can’t think of a better way to kickstart the festive season, than by sharing a recipe for the fluffiest buttermilk pancakes which will be your savior on those lazy holiday mornings (or evenings)! They are delightfully crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside…YUM!

There are so many magical ingredients in this recipe that helps to achieve the best pancake but the star I’m going to focus on is the Snowflake Baking Powder.

Baking powder is an ingredient we use so often and therefore take for granted, unfortunately. Here are a few baking powder tips, to ensure you utilize it optimally.

Tip 1: To test whether your baking powder is still good, mix 1 teaspoon baking powder with 1/2 cup water.  If it bubbles and foams, the baking powder is still good. Always check the expiry date too 🙂

Tip 2: Always store your baking powder in an airtight container in a cool, dry place so it does not lose its magic 🙂


  • 310g flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon Snowflake baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 600ml buttermilk
  • 113g melted butter
  • 2 eggs, whites, and yolks separated


  1. In a large bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients – flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  2. In a medium bowl add the remaining “wet ingredients” except the egg whites – buttermilk, melted butter, and egg yolks and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and gently fold with a spatula until just combined, careful not to overmix.
  4. Add the egg whites and fold until just combined, careful not to overmix.
  5. Allow the batter to rest 15-30minutes.
  6. Add some butter to a cast iron skillet and heat over a medium-low heat. Once the butter has melted and is bubbling, reduce the heat to medium-low and add 1/3 cup of batter to the pan.
  7. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles start to appear on the surface and flip over on the other side cooking for another 1-2 minutes.
  8. Serve with your desired sides – I served with caramelized peaches and nectarines, homemade salted caramel and fresh cream.
