Buttermilk Pancakes with Caramel Syrup Recipes

Updated on December 9, 2012

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


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


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


¼ cup butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

⅔ cup water

½ teaspoon vanilla extract


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!
