Pancake Without Buttermilk

Bring Joy to Breakfast with Buttermilk-Free Pancakes!


Add a burst of color and flavor to your breakfast table with this delightful pancake recipe. Sprinkles and a mix of berries make it a hit!

Since my boys were little, we’ve cherished these strawberries pancakes, named playfully after the scrumptious blend of strawberries, blueberries, and sprinkles we use.

I still cherish the memories of my boys trying to pronounce the name. Now, at ages 10 and 14, they still request these perfect, sprinkle-laden pancakes every lazy Saturday morning.

This is the ultimate pancake recipe, simple yet better than any boxed mix. It requires minimal effort, making it the perfect morning treat for your family.

How to Create Buttermilk-Free Pancakes: Step by Step


Start by combining the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, in a large mixing bowl. Mix them well.

In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients: milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Use a mixer or spoon to achieve a smooth consistency.

Gradually add the flour mixture and stir until the batter becomes lump-free.


Take a non-stick skillet, set it over medium heat, and generously spray it with cooking spray.

Pour 1/4 cup of the pancake batter onto the hot skillet for each pancake.

For added goodness, consider adding blueberries and sprinkles to each pancake before flipping. You can also try other berries!

Cook each pancake for about 3 minutes on each side until they rise and achieve a beautiful golden brown color.

Repeat the process until you’ve used up all the batter, spraying the skillet with cooking spray for each new batch.

Spread butter over the warm pancakes and top them with maple syrup and extra berries.

Recipe Notes and Variations

  • Create diverse pancake flavors by using different combinations of berries. Add a small handful of berries to each pancake.
  • Frozen blueberries can be used as an alternative to fresh ones.
  • If serving all at once, keep the pancakes warm by covering them with foil or paper towels on a plate.
  • You can use coconut milk, almond milk, skim, 1%, 2%, or whole milk for this recipe.
  • For an extra fluffy texture, try separating the egg yolk from the egg white. Whip the egg whites before adding them to the rest of the wet ingredients.
  • Opt for a large skillet or an electric griddle when making these pancakes.
  • Enhance the flavor by adding a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice along with the vanilla extract.
