Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes-the perfect way to start off any day!

Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes-the perfect way to start off any day!

Reading is so important for kids. I’m blessed that 2 of my 3 kids, love to read. In Elementary and Middle school, both CJ and Cassie would complete for top reading points every year. Grace is not my reader. I have to nag her to do her reading homework and reading for pleasure is not pleasurable to her.

While shopping the other day, we came across a children’s cookbook. “Mama can we get this? You want me to read, I’ll read the recipes and then make them.” How can I argue with that. She also gets a little math in while we’re cooking since we almost always either double or triple our recipes.

Then she goes one further “Mama, I’ll write up the recipe for your blog.” Writing skills are useful too.

So….here’s Grace!

My name is Grace Hayes, I’m  Joan’s daughter and I made Light as a Feather Pancakes for dinner.
They really were light as a feather. They were really good. I love to cook and bake.

Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • shortening


  1. Place flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir with fork or whisk and set aside. Place the buttermilk into a second bowl and then add the eggs in. Beat with whisk or fork until all the eggs are mixed in with the buttermilk. Add in oil and beat again. Add wet to dry ingredients mix it all together. Its OK to have lumps.
  2. Grease the griddle with shortening and then turn on the griddle then turned heat to medium and let it get hot. Scoop some batter onto the griddle and then let them cook for about two minutes.
  3. Then flip them. Then wait about one minute and then take them off. Then you do that until there is none left. Serve with butter, syrup and fresh raspberries.

  1. Well done Grace! on the blogging and the baking! these pancakes look so super delicious, I’ve pinned the recipe straight away and will be making them soon for sure! I also love your sparkly top!

  2. GREAT job, Grace!! You’ll be a regular food blogger in no time!! These look so doggone good – can I come over for breakfast?! I’ve got my eye on that big plate of bacon in the background, too.

  3. Well done Grace! Beautiful pancakes and a great writeup. I’m so excited to see more of your posts 🙂

    I love your post, Grace. The recipe sounds delicious, and your step-by-step instructions were perfect! You are well on your way to being a great cook. And not only are cookbooks good reading, but there are some pretty good biographies of great chefs that I find fun to read. Maybe you will, too, someday. And remember to impress your friends and teachers by reminding them that cooking is not only reading and math, but some chemical science, too. I can’t wait to try these pancakes, and I hope you continue to enjoy cooking. 🙂

  5. This is a great way to get kids to practice reading, math, and cooking! Way to go Grace! and those pancakes look delicious!

  6. Your pancakes look delicious, Grace! Those are ingredients I usually have on hand, so I need to try out your recipe this weekend!! 🙂 It looks like you’re becoming a good cook already! I remember when I was 4 yrs. old I got my first cookbook and it was Gold Medal’s Alpha-Bakery Kid’s Cookbook! Recipes from A-Z, and I wore it out cooking, even as a little girl! I still have it now. 🙂

  7. Yea for quality time in the kitchen with your daughter. I love to read also. The Hubby jokes about my nose frequently being in a book.

    Gotta love buttermilk pancakes from scratch!

  9. Aw what a sweetie! You guys did a great job, these pancakes look phenomenal!! I would love a nice tall stack of these!

  10. You and Your website seem very yummy!!! I love chocolate!

  11. These look amazing Grace! I wish we could have eaten with you. But then, you would still be cooking with my hungry boys eating your yummy pancakes! Thank you for writing such a great step-by-step post for us. I’ll show it to my son, 9 1/2 years old, and see if he’ll make these for us. You Rock, Grace! <3 and hugs sweetie!

  12. Grace, those look delicious! I will save your recipe for the next time we want pancakes!
