In this video I shoe you how to make pancakes like IHOP buttermilk pancakes at home. 

I've personally have tried making buttermilk pancakes with little success in making them fluffy until I uncovered three very important steps.  I guarantee that if you follow this recipe and my instructions below, you'll have super fluffy pancakes that taste almost identical to the IHOP Buttermilk Pancake.

Don't miss the three tips that I share with you through the process.  If you skip the three steps you will not have Fluffy IHOP Pancakes.

1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 cup vegetable  oil (I use olive oil)
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg (slightly beaten)
1 1/2 cup buttermilk (1/8 - 1/4 cup more if needed to keep batter thinner)

Preheat a frying pan or griddle.  If you are using a griddle, preheat to 375 degrees.

Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl and sit aside.

Put egg and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric hand mixer or wire whisk until the egg is light, fluffy, and will nearly stand on it's own.

Mix the vegetable oil (I use olive oil), milk, and vanilla gently into the egg.

Now mix in the dry ingredients being careful to leave a little bit lumpy.  If you mix until smooth, your pancakes will be thin and tough.

Let Stand for 5 - 10 minutes.

Pour batter onto griddle to desired size and turn pancakes when air bubbles come to the top and burst.  Turning pancakes is made much easier if you spray your pancake turner with a non-stick spray. The turner does not stick to the uncooked dough of pancake when you are turning them.

This recipe makes about nine 4" - 5" pancakes.

Serve warm with your favorite syrup.
<p>I love the simplicity of the video; especially the cat checking in to see if it's ready...too cute. I notice in the video it calls for five cups of flour; however the recipe says 1 1/4 cup. 1 1/4 c double is 2 1/2 cs so in order to get 5 cups it's suppose to be 2 1/2 cs double. I double the recipe and it was a wet mess. But that's the fun of cooking you get to do it all over again until you get it right. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for the video!</p>
<p>These don't work well as blueberry pancakes, just so you guys know</p>
<p>I just did it here in Costa Rica and it's an amazing recipe. You are right about not missing the tips. </p>
<p>Great American pancake recipe. </p>
<p>Whoops should say American Style Pancakes. I lived in England and abroad and what are called pancakes are often closer to crepes.</p>
<p>I only use this recipe now, it's great!</p>
Nice write up, I've never been able to get my pancakes to fluff up. Thanks for sharing.
I'm glad I could be of assistance! :) Hopefully the video wasn't too much of a drag and you enjoyed it. Thanks for watching. Please like, comment, and share. Wayne, SC
I didn't watch the video, my Internet is too slow most of the time for videos. <br>I just liked that you had good grammar, and your instructions were easy to follow. :)
For somebody to say that my grammar was good is a huge compliment. Grammar is not my strongest attribute and I've been working on it for quite some time. Thank You! Wayne
