Yield:
12 pancakes
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • For the Syrup:
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • Small pinch of salt
  • For the Pancakes:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups well-shaken buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for greasing
  • Vegetable oil, for greasing
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
Directions

Make the syrup: Add 3/4 cup water, the brown sugar and salt to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer and stir until the sugar dissolves. Let simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool before serving.

Make the pancakes: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl. Add the buttermilk, eggs and cooled melted butter to a second bowl and whisk to combine.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet mixture. Stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Do not overmix or you'll end up with tough and chewy pancakes!

Heat a large electric griddle or nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add a few drops of vegetable oil and a pat of butter. Once the butter melts, wipe the skillet with a paper towel. Ladle about 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Place a small handful of sliced strawberries on top of the pancakes. Cook until the bubbles begin to burst on the surface, about 3 minutes, then flip and cook until the second side is a nice golden brown, about 2 more minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter; put the finished pancakes on a sheet tray and keep warm in the oven as you finish.

Arrange the pancakes on individual plates and serve with the syrup.

    DELICIOUS! My son asked me to make Strawberry pancakes, found this recipe and will be using it from now on. Absolutely Divine! All my son could say is MMMMMmmmmmmmmm. Thank you for a fabulous recipe.
    I made these with only one substitution (half and half and milk and they came out great! Everyone loved these and the syrup was outstanding!
    Unbelievable pancakes. I just added blackberries and blueberries along with the strawberry's. 
    Perfect recipe, the buttermilk really makes them thick and creamy. It's a must make!
    Came looking for a good buttermilk pancake recipe that i could make from scratch...found two...and chose this one. The one word I'd use to describe it "SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS" And for those of you who don't know what that word means buy this disney classic film "Mary Poppins" to learn, and reconnect with your inner precociousness and love of Disney. Shame on you if you don't ;-
     
     I'll definitely be using this recipe again when the mood for pancakes strikes me.
    Love mamma callie's homemade syrup! I can't stand store bought syrup anymore. When they did the pancake challenge in our house she won hands down! Now every sunday i make homemade pancakes for my girls. Thank you for inspiring me!
    I really like this recipe, the pancakes are more like a crepe consistency probably because I didn't find the buttermilk so I substituted it with whole milk and blueberries instead of strawberries. The syrup was great and I added chopped granny apples and cinnamon to it. We really love it. YUM This one is a keeper!
    These were great, the pancakes came out so fluffy and moist. I will make again but next time I will use blueberries. I also added a table spoon or two of extra sugar. I couldnt get the syrup right. I tried it twice but each time the syrup ended up crystalizing..
    You may have stirred the mixture, which will cause crystallization. Anytime you make a sugar syrup, never ever disturb the mixture. Just let it sit there and cook. At the most, you can very gently swirl the pan, itself.
    This was soo delicious...my hu7bby loved this as well, and he's not a big pancake man...very sweet!
    So great, i used bananas and put some walnuts in it soooooooooooo good.
    These are great! The recipe was easy, the syrup was surprisingly yummy, and the strawberries carmelized perfectly onto the pancakes. I served with turkey sausage which balanced out the sweetness really well.
    Amazing Pancakes! Light, fluffy, moist, flavorful, with caramelized strawberries - I ate 3 giant pancakes myself. It is very important to mix lightly only - undermixed is probably better than overmixed. Enjoy these delectable treats!!
    These are great! I will never go back to a box... or as I was taught bisquick... My family loves these.. I do use frozed blueberries instead and it is just awesome. Very filling. It is thick so back sure they are cooked before flipping. they are so fluffy, so easy to make, totally impress everyone with this recipe. and the sryup is awesome!
    Very good... Husband and son devoured them! I am normally a maple syrup person (and I mean 100% REAL maple syrup) but I made the brown sugar sauce and it really worked with the strawberries. The batter is THICK so watch it to make sure it is really cooked before you pull it off the griddle.
    We loved this recipe in our house. It is a great basic pancake recipe that is there in place of boxed pancake mix. I added an extra tsp. of baking powder to make it extra fluffy.
    We made these alongside Pat Neely's Buttermilk Pancakes with Vanilla Bean-Berry Syrup and they just didn't match up. The syrup is very basic, much like Mrs. Butterworth's. The pancakes are good, but the addition of the strawberries changed the consistency and made them a bit like crepes and not pancakes.
