Buttermilk pancakes

This is the recipe I mentioned from Genius Kitchen.  Serves 2.  Happy baking!


  • 1 egg
  • 128g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 245g buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 -2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Bananas, kiwi fruit, plain yoghurt and maple syrup for serving


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the egg on medium speed until frothy.  If too difficult, froth up using a whisk.
  • Add the buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla and mix well.
  • Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, and beat on medium speed just until blended.
  • Heat a lightly greased frying pan or pancake pan.
  • Pour about half a soup ladle of batter onto the pan for each pancake.
  • Cook until the tops of the pancakes are covered with tiny bubbles and the batter is set, about 4 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until the undersides are golden brown, about 3-4 minutes more.  Adjust cook time, according to hob.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Top with toppings of your choice, as suggested.
