The Perfect St. Patrick’s Day Pancakes


When you wake up in the morning and you want pancakes, you want some nice and fluffy pancakes, not that artificial store-bought Betty Crocker mix! After lots and lots of failed and successful attempts, I have finally constructed the perfect pancake. 



  • Three Tablespoons of completely melted butter
  • Two large eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons of sugar
  • Less than one teaspoon of salt
  • 2 ½ Cups of Buttermilk
  • 2 Cups of All Purpose flour
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons of Baking Powder
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons of Baking Soda
  • Green food coloring (optional)



  1. Preheat the griddle/pan to 300 degrees fahrenheit or medium heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, eggs, salt and sugar, then whisk.
  3. Add the buttermilk to the wet mixture and whisk until homogenous.
  4. Before adding the dry mixture, you can add a couple drops of green food coloring to celebrate St. Patrick’s day.
  5. Add your flour FIRST, then add your baking powder and soda and finally mix.
  6. For cooking, I use the Curious George method,* but you can just cook it until it is cooked on the inside.
  7. Optionally, before you flip, add any toppings like chocolate chips or sausage bits, but nothing like fruit, you can add that in the end.


I hope you love this recipe! (I really love to use it on Fridays or weekends.)

  • The reason why I didn’t use buttermilk first is because the actual butter will clump up and result in a disaster
