Betty Nyhus' Perfect Pancakes

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • dash of oil
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Careful not to overmix, just enough to combine. Batter will be the same consistancy of heavy cream. Cook on a griddle on medium hi until bubbles rise to the surface. Flip cook for one more minute. Plate and enjoy.

*optional.. add chocolate chips, or blueberries, or chopped fruit for an added tasty treat.


My family has made these pancakes every sunday as far as I can remember. We waited for my dad to come home from church (he was a pastor) before we cooked the pancakes. He made the best, Light and golden on the outside, and still creamy and gooey on the inside. They won't turn into syrup sponges. mmmmmmm perfect pancakes.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank pankakebrunch for this recipe.

Hi, I made these with some changes. I used spelt flour, had no buttermilk, so used chocolate jogurt and water, half half. put in two stevia sweeteners. They were thin and very good. I made them because she said her dad used to make them on Sunday, because I was not sure about the gueuy middle. But they tasted with chocolate after taste but not like chocolate chips, which I do not like. And even my kids enjoyed them very much. Very good.

The only reason this doesn't get a "Rotten" rating is my husband did eat them. Followed this recipe exactly. Like I said, my husband ate them but said "please don't make them again." I couldn't even take a second bite. Maybe I did something wrong, but they were too thin and had a really "eggy" taste, like when you get too much egg on your french toast.

I had some "senior" bananas, so I mashed them and added them into the batter. I didn''t have any buttermilk, so I substituted yoghurt and sour cream. Not sure if it was because of the above items, but mine were kind of "creamy" on the inside - I think I prefer a dryer pancake. But the flavor was good, and my kids ate them up. I think I''ll have to try it as written once before I can give a true rating!

Hello from Australia. This recipe is great. I tried it this morning they were the best I have ever made, and I love the fact that it's an old recipe and tradition for her family. It makes them even more special. We enjoyed them and may even make it our Sunday morning breakfast too. Mmmmmmm Yumyumyum.
