No eggs? No problem! You can still get the moisture and structure eggs provide pancakes by using buttermilk. The acid in the buttermilk keeps the pancakes tender and helps maintain a fluffy texture. A bit of extra butter in the batter also helps to keep the pancakes moist. They're all the better with a smear of butter and drizzle of maple syrup.



  1. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk the buttermilk, butter and vanilla in a medium bowl until incorporated. Whisk the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture until just combined (it's OK if there are a few lumps).
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and lightly brush with butter. Pour 1/3 cup of the batter into the skillet for each pancake and cook until bubbles form on top and the bottom is lightly browned, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. (If the pancakes are browning too quickly, reduce the heat to medium-low.) Flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side, 1 to 2 more minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter, brushing the pan with more butter as needed. Serve with butter and syrup. 

Cook’s Note

When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.) Take care to mix the batter until it just comes together to ensure that the pancakes do not become tough or chewy.
