Buttermilk pancakes with winter fruit salad

Andrew Grinton


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 2 pinches (generous) salt

  • 3 eggs

  • 3 cups buttermilk

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled (plus more for pan if needed)

  • 1 tbsp vanilla

  • maple syrup, for topping


  • To prepare dry pancake ingredients, whisk flour in a large bowl with sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. (Dry pancake mixture will keep well, covered or stored in an airtight container, at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.)

  • Preheat oven to 250F. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs with buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Slowly pour and whisk into flour mixture. A few lumps are OK; don’t overmix.

  • Set large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add a little butter. When hot, pour a scant 1?4 cup batter into pan. Cook until pancake is bubbling on top and golden on underside, 2 to 5 min. Flip and continue to cook until golden on both sides, 2 to 4 min. Do not press. Remove to a baking sheet and loosely cover with foil. Keep warm in oven until ready to serve. Continue with more pancake batter. If possible, speed up cooking by using 2 frying pans. When pancakes are done, serve with Winter Fruit Salad and maple syrup.
