Pancake Tuesday

Today is Pancake Tuesday... or Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday... depending on where you live and how you  celebrate.  I have never been to Mardi Gras, nor have I ever participated in a Pancake Race, but in recognition of this day we will have pancakes for dinner. 

Which will make this breakfast-for-dinner-loving-girl very happy indeed.  My go-to pancake recipe is a standard buttermilk one, which I've shared at the end of this post.  It  makes wonderfully thick and fluffy pancakes, but I'm tempted to try something different tonight.  

Like these German Apple Pancakes at Jamie Cooks it Up!  Amazing, no?

There is no shortage of alternative pancake inspiration out there and in the spirit of true over-indulgence, I believe a Pancake Buffet may be the answer.  Seriously, check these out:

Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Banana Bread Pancakes with Vanilla Maple Glaze at How Sweet It Is


Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes at A Good Appetite
Including directions for making your own Ricotta!

Sparkling Apple Cider Pancakes!  A delicious and flavorful breakfast! #breakfast #recipe #apple

Sparkling Apple Cider Pancakes with Sparkling Apple Cider Syrup at Chef in Training

Egg Nog Pancakes from yours truly!


almond pancakes with blackberry syrup and sweet yogurt cream

Of course, no Pancake Buffet is complete without an assortment of syrups:

Blueberry Simple Syrup


And if one wants to ensure their Pancake Buffet is completely over the top, I give you dessert pancakes:

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Oreo Cookie Pancakes at Minimalist Baker

Classic Buttermilk Pancakes


1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 cups buttermilk*
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 

Whisk together the buttermilk, vanilla, melted butter and eggs in a separate bowl until well combined. 

*If you don't keep buttermilk on hand, make your own buttermilk with one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar for each cup of milk.  Put the tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar in your measuring cup, then add the milk to measure one cup of buttermilk.  Allow to sit for a few minutes before combining with the other ingredients.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients.  Allow batter to sit for a few minutes.

Lightly butter a large frying pan and set over medium heat.  Use a 1/3 cup of batter for each 6” pancake.  Flip each pancake when bubbles form on the surface and the edges begin to brown, 2-3 minutes.  If your pancakes brown too quickly, turn heat down to medium-low.  Cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes or until browned. 

Serve right away or keep warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining pancakes. 

Maple syrup is required :)

Happy Pancake Tuesday!

Thank you for featuring me!

  1. Jenn, I love pancakes for dinner. In fact I eat them for dinner more often then for breakfast. I will be checking out several of these yummy recipes!

  2. Those pancakes look fabulous, my mouth is watering even though we had pancakes this evening too! My husband makes them perfectly, mine always come out a little stodgy, but with bananas and chocolate sauce as a topping I don't mind too much!

  3. I can't get enough of pancakes. They are absolutely yummy. I almost want to cheat my diet :)

    Hoping from Aloha Friday to visit u.

  4. OMG I need pancakes right now :-D These look all so yummy!

    xoxo Pakize (Keke)


  5. What a fantastic post. You've covered all the bases here and each of these recipes has an appeal all its own. It will be hard to pick one or two to try. I hope your week is off to a great start. Have a good day. Blessings...Mary

  6. Oh my goodness those all look great! It's leftover day for dinner tonight, but I'm thinking tomorrow may have to be pancake day! =)

    thanks for stopping by and linking up with my Oh HAPPY Day party too!

  7. I kind of hate you a little. I'm eating a reduced carb diet right now, and now I WANT TO EAT ALL THE PANCAKES!!!!

  8. Hi Jenn,

    Happy belated pancakes day! Love your massive list of delicious pancakes! Now I will know where to go if I need one or more pancake recipes.
