  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, milk, eggs, and melted butter until well combined.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently fold until just combined. Don’t overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  4. Preheat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or cooking spray.
  5. For each pancake, pour a quarter cup of batter onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
