Daisy's Buttermilk Pancake Recipe
We’re doing it!! We’re giving away our secret Buttermilk Pancake recipe (yes, the very same ones we serve at our cafe!!). These fluffy, golden, pancakes have beautifully crisp edges and an irresistible buttermilk flavour. You can add chocolate chips, bananas or blueberries to them or leave them as is. They come out perfect every time and will surely become a family favourite as they are in our house.

Materials Needed

  • 1 large non-stick frying pan
  • non-stick spray
  • 1 spatula
  • 1 whisk
  • Measuring spoons
  • 1 cup measure
  • ¼ cup measure
  • 2 large mixing bowls



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1.25 tsp table salt


  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


Have on hand some of your favourite pancake toppings. A few of our family faves are: Blueberries / Banana & Chocolate Chips / Strawberries / Whipped Cream and of course, local Canadian Maple Syrup!

Make your pancakes into a full meal deal by adding breakfast sausages or smoked bacon on the side. I’ll be cooking up my fave breakfast sausages from Fresh From the Farm located on Donlands.



Mix together all dry ingredients in one bowl


Whisk together all wet ingredients in a separate bowl


Add the wet mix to the dry mix then be sure to whisk out all dem lumps!
  Let batter sit at least 5 - 10 minutes before cooking 


Warm your pan over medium low heat. Spray with cooking oil (butter tends to overbrown the edges).


Using the ¼ cup measure, scoop batter and place in frying pan so they form medium size circles
Let cook until batter begins to bubble then flip

If you are adding any toppings, now is the time to add them in!


Continue cooking for another minute or so until second side is lightly and perfectly browned and batter is cooked all through the center. (careful – your pan might get hotter over time so cooking time will decrease)

Plate, serve and enjoy!
