5 Old Fashioned Pancake Recipes You Will Love

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’m sharing my favorite 5 old fashioned pancake recipes you will love today, I promise! Let’s picture a brunch for a school graduation, with the tables decorated with bowls of every color filled with toppings for pancakes, crepes or waffles. It could be a party, a brunch or even breakfast for dinner. My daughter Heidi and her husband, Nate cook a huge brunch every Sunday and whoever drops by is always welcome. You know what I mean, there is always enough food for everyone. There could be 15 or 30 people, we never know. But the food is made from scratch and you can smell the yummy food as you walk through the front door. You can keep your pancakes warm in one of these: Norpro Tortilla Pancake Keeper I purchased two of these because I have a big family. I love fixing breakfast!

Some of these recipes will need a blender, a mixing bowl, hand mixer, dough whisk or spoon to mix the ingredients. You can use a griddle, a crepe pan or cast iron pan. So start thinking which recipe you want to make first, don’t forget the butter and whipped cream in some cases. You know you can use the whipped cream in the cans but there is nothing quite like fresh cream whipped with sugar and vanilla added.

Pancake Recipes:

Buttermilk Pancakes

pancake recipes

2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
I start with a medium bowl and add the flour and make a well in the center. I then add all of the other ingredients and use my Danish whisk or one of my stainless steel whisks. I use approximately 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and cook each side until golden brown. These are fabulous and fluffy!

Sliced bananas
Mini chocolate chips, use amount as desired (I sprinkle just a few on each pancake)
I place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk it until blended. It will be a medium thick batter or add more milk until you reach your preferred thickness. I use approximately 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and cook each side until golden brown. Serve with maple syrup or caramel sauce.

Oven Puffy Baked Pancakes

pancake recipes

6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup bread flour
1/2 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees, place all of the ingredients in a blender and whip until fluffy and blended. Quickly place the batter into a greased 9-inch by 13-inch cake pan, or fill a greased muffin/cupcake (12 cupcake pan) to the top of each cupcake spot. They will puff up.

Bake the cake pan or cupcake pan approximately 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with butter, powdered sugar, cinnamon/sugar, jam or syrup.

Whole Wheat Pancakes

pancake recipes

1-1/2 cups freshly ground hard white wheat
1-1/2 cups milk
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. I use approximately 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and cook each side until golden brown. These take a bit longer to cook because of the whole wheat, but it’s worth it, I promise. Cook these on a hot greased griddle and cook each side as you do any pancake. These are delicious!

    1. June, I love this recipe, I have got to try it! I just bought some small containers of unsweetened applesauce because Mark and I can’t eat a whole jar. Thank you!!!! Linda

  2. Hi Linda,
    I hope you don’t mind my asking about two related but different things in the one query.
    Firstly, I was wondering why you specified using a blender for some of these recipes and how you would suggest making them if the electricity died. Eg in the Swedish/Norwegian I assume it is because it saves having to rub the butter in to the dry ingredients, but in the Puff pancakes melted butter is used so, would I need to change the way the ingredients are mixed if I made them by hand (here in rural Australia we regularly lose power. Even though we have solar we’re still tied to the grid because the economically viable batteries and inverters required to be off grid still haven’t reached Oz. Result when the grid’s offline, so are we. Sigh).
    Secondly, I often catch your videos out of the corner of my eye when reading one of your pages, but as the video isn’t repeated I need to find the written recipe to get the whole recipe. However it’s almost impossible to find them using your search box. E.g. I came halfway into the “Puffy pancakes” video but entering ‘puffy pancakes’ only brought up ‘best pancakes’ and some unrelated pages. Next I tried the terms; ‘pancakes’ then ‘baked pancakes’ then ‘puffy’ then ‘muffin pancakes’ plus a few more derivations but none brought up a page with the recipe in the video. I almost gave up but, I really wanted that recipe so I started working on variations of the two words – and putting just the word ‘puff’ in finally rewarded me with the right recipe. Given you know your site better than I do, can you suggest any faster/easier ways to track down specific items on your site?

    1. HI Carol, I’m so glad you asked about the puffy pancakes. The original recipe had me melt the butter in a 9 by 13-inch pan. The faster you can beat the batter the more “muscles” the cakepan has with the pancake puffing up. The kids love it. I would melt the butter then pour the batter into the cake pan. I wanted a way to make the batter without melting the butter in the pan. That’s why I use a blender. You can easily use a whisk, but you will need to beat ever so fast!! I’m glad you mentioned having trouble with finding my posts by a specific word. When I first started blogging, I was instructed that “TAGS” are not needed. WELL, they are needed. I have been slowly going about over 1500 posts and adding tags. LOTS of tags. NOW, when I write a post, I think to myself how will my readers find THIS post, I probably put way too many tags. LOL! But I really hope you can find my recipes or articles!! I will go find my puffy pancake recipe and add TAGS right now. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Linda

    2. HI Carol, I may do a totally new post on Puffy Pancakes aka Popeye Pancakes which is under “best pancakes”, I will work on the tags and possibly do a new post so people can find that recipe, thanks again, Linda
