Buttermilk Pancakes Default

Comments: 0


Maple syrup and crispy bacon are the classic accompaniments but cream cheese with smoked salmon, mackerel, or spicy sausages are also delicious.

Yield: Makes 14-15 × 3inch pancakes


  • ¾ cup (6fl oz) buttermilk
  • 1 egg, preferably free range
  • 1 tablespoon (½oz) butter, melted
  • ½ cup (2oz) tapioca flour
  • ¼ cup (1oz) fine cornmeal
  • Good pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Clarified butter


Mix the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter in a large bowl, until smooth and blended. Sift together the tapioca flour, fine cornmeal, salt, and baking soda and gently stir into the buttermilk only until the ingredients are moistened—don’t worry about the lumps.

Heat a heavy iron or non-stick skillet until medium hot. Grease with a little clarified butter. Spoon 1 generous tablespoon of batter onto the pan and spread slightly with the back of the spoon.

Cook until the bubbles rise and break on the top of the pancake. Flip over gently. Cook until pale golden on the other side. Remove and keep warm. Continue until all the batter has been used.

Spread each pancake with butter and serve a stack of three per person with crispy bacon and maple syrup.


Serve with: Crispy bacon, Maple syrup
