  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 & 1/2 cups flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk (whole milk recommended)
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • Bacon grease (for frying; butter can be used as an alternative)


  1. Heat your oven to 170 degrees F, often referred to as the “keep warm” setting, to ensure your pancakes stay warm while preparing the entire batch.
  2. Set up three bowls: large, medium, and small.
  3. In the large bowl, microwave the butter until melted. Allow it to cool slightly.
  4. In the medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  5. Add buttermilk and milk to the melted butter.
  6. Separate the eggs, adding the yolks to the wet ingredients in the large bowl. Whisk in the yolks.
  7. In the small bowl, beat the egg whites for about 20 seconds until slightly bubbly, aiding in even folding.
  8. Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir roughly with a wooden spoon, ensuring the batter is just barely combined with visible streaks of flour.
  9. Gently fold in the beaten egg whites, leaving some streaks, ensuring a light and fluffy texture.
  10. Heat a griddle or large frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, smear a little bacon grease over the griddle.
  11. Scoop the batter using a half-cup measurement onto the griddle.
  12. When bubbles form on the top and start to pop, carefully flip the pancakes. They should be a delightful golden brown.
  13. Continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes until both sides achieve a perfect golden hue.
  14. Remove the pancakes to a cooking rack and keep them warm in the preheated oven.
  15. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter.
  16. Serve the pancakes with generous amounts of butter, syrup, and for an extra touch, consider adding a dollop of peanut butter.
