Butter Milk Pancakes: Matching Syrup

Butter Milk Pancakes

Jalisco, Mexico


This recipe is my favorite pancake recipe ever! I love the tang of the buttermilk and use it whenever I can, especially in buttermilk biscuits. Whenever you serve these pancakes to family or friends they will attest that these truly are the best ever! I think what elevates these fantastic pancakes is the syrup that goes with them! It is truly phenomenal! Honestly the best pancakes and syrup you will ever make! Let’s fire up the griddle.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted


Buttermilk Syrup
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla


Instructions: The Syrup
  • Combine butter, sugar and buttermilk in a medium saucepan
  • Over medium heat
  • Cook until sugar completely dissolves, stirring occasionally
  • Then remove from heat
  • Add baking soda and vanilla
  • Stir to combine
  • Syrup will foam up, but that is part of what makes it so incredible
  • Don’t worry, just be careful


Instructions: Pancakes

Drizzle your pancakes with syrup, served with fresh fruit and your favorite breakfast sides. Maybe a Mimosa or two. Also, this syrup can be used on your French toast to kick it up a notch, give it try.
