Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix flour, buttermilk, farina, egg, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Add a bit more buttermilk if batter seems too thick. Let sit until slightly thickened and puffed up, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Pour batter, 1/4 cup at a time, onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Note:

Can be made multigrain - substitute up to 1/2 cup flour for finely ground oats or dry grain cereal such as Bob's Red Mill(R) 5-Grain Cereal.

These are the lightest fluffiest and most flavorful pancakes in our arsenal. We've been making them this way for 10 years and love it. It's getting harder to find instant cream of wheat so I snap up a box whenever I can get it. Just to clarify - this is not the quick-cooking 5 minute cream of what it's the instant envelopes. The recipe uses one envelope. Read More

This is my favorite pancake recipe, it is very forgiving if you adjust it or add to it (for variation we have at times added berries or vanilla) and the delicate crisp edge is perfection! I was surprised this morning to find my farina was nearly all gone so I used Malt-O-Meal instead and the results were fabulous. Of course, most anything made with buttermilk is extra tasty! Read More
