Buttermilk Pancakes with Caramel Syrup Recipes

Breakfast - The Most Important Meal of the Day

There are many varieties of pancakes, but one of my favourites is the basic buttermilk pancake. This is a simple yet tasty recipe and it is easily modified to accommodate fresh blueberries, chocolate chips, banana slices or any other ingredient that you would like to add. My family loves to top their pancakes with maple syrup, but caramel syrup is gaining popularity and is fast becoming another favourite. To complete this breakfast meal, I add sausages or bacon along with a cup of freshly cut fruit that is in season.

Buttermilk Pancakes

 Ingredients

1 ½ cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten

1 ⅓ cups buttermilk

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Method

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.  In a separate medium sized mixing bowl, combine egg, buttermilk and oil.  Stir this mixture slowly into the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended.  Preheat a griddle or non-stick skillet on medium-high heat, or until the surface reaches 400⁰F.  Pour ¼ cup batter onto griddle for each pancake.  Cook until the surface of the pancakes turn from shiny to dull. Turn and cook until underside is golden grown.  Cover and keep warm in a 200⁰F oven while cooking the remaining pancakes.  Serve pancakes topped with Caramel Syrup along with a fresh cup of fruit.  Makes 16 pancakes.

Caramel Syrup

Ingredients

¼ cup butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

⅔ cup water

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

 Method

Combine butter, brown sugar and water in a small saucepan.  Simmer over medium-low heat for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.  Serve warm over buttermilk pancakes.

What to do with leftovers?

Pancakes can be frozen in zippered air tight bags.  Instead of toast, you can pop a frozen pancake in the toaster, and it comes up just as good as when it was made fresh.  It’s a wonderful alternative to toast.

Caramel syrup is extremely adaptable to all types of foods.  I slice bananas into a bowl and pour caramel syrup over the bananas until all are coated.  This is great with either hot or cold caramel syrup.  Another decadent dish is to drizzle the sauce over vanilla ice cream.  Mmm, it’s delicious!

I love pecans and caramel. I was also thinking of making this for my kids as a dessert. I would make it a turtle pancake sundae. I would top it with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with bananas and pecans.. then drizzle your caramel sauce and chocolate sauce on top.

luvintkandtj -- Oh yes!! You have me heading to the kitchen to try your combination!! I usually serve a fresh cup of fruit salad or a fresh berry salad alongside but have not tried the pecans. I loooove pecans!! Thank you for suggesting a mouthwatering combination!

TheEVILDuck! -- You can substitute the egg in the pancakes for egg substitute which you can find in the vegan aisle in your healthfood store. The ratio is one tablespoon of egg substitute per egg but read the instructions carefully. I have quite often used the egg substitute in my recipes, and the results are the same as if using real egg.

You can use the Hershey's one, but this one is much, much, much more delicious! You can keep any leftovers (if there is any...I never have any leftover), you can rewarm it and pour it over vanilla ice cream as a desert after dinner.

Enjoy!

RNMSN -- Switch things up a little! I quite often make breakfast for dinner, especially on the weekends. My kids love it when I do that! Enjoy!

Hi!

Got a recipe without egg? Egg isn't allowed at home! :/

Some religious belief or something! :/

Oh and for the caramel syrup, can't we just use the Hershey's one?

I would definitely recommend this reading the comments though haven't tried it yet! :P

Dashingscorpio -- Aunt Jemima is great in a pinch, and especially if you add a bit of egg, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon into it. If you try mine, you'll never go back to a mix, not even Aunt Jemima! :)

Hey Beth, I always have enjoyed Buttermilk Pancakes. They used to be something I would order whenever I went out to breakfast, after a night of drinking. As I aged, I switch to eggs, toast and hash-browns. It was a great hub. Rated it up and marked as useful. Thank you for sharing. :)
