  1. Whisk buttermilk, eggs, and butter together in a bowl. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Whisk flour mixture into buttermilk mixture until smooth. Set batter aside until bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes. Pour champagne into batter; stir gently.
  2. Grease a non-stick skillet lightly and heat over medium-high heat. Pour 1/3 cup batter onto the skillet; cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Make homemade buttermilk by mixing 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar. Let set 10 to 15 minutes before using.
  • Use up to 1 full cup of Champagne, if desired.
  • Be sure the pan is very hot before making the first pancake or it will come out soggy.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
