Copycat IHOP Buttermilk Pancakes
Sweet and fluffy pancakes served with fresh fruit and warm syrup. They taste just like IHOP’s classic buttermilk pancakes, but are even better made at home!
Okay, I know I’m a little late to the party here, seeing as how IHOP recently flipped that P around to make a lowercase b. (They want to increase burger sales.) But this brand change got me thinking, what if decide to take pancakes off their menu completely?! I needed to be prepared.
I started flippin’ flapjacks in my kitchen like there was no tomorrow, and I’m happy to say, I found the best replica to IHOP’s classic buttermilk pancake. They’re everything that you want a pancake to be. Light, fluffy, golden on the outside, a little sweet, and easy to make. That’s the whole package right there.
- Plain yogurt.
- Sour cream with a little milk, (or water if you must).
- Mix 1 Tablespoon of White Vingear or lemon juice, + enough milk to equal a cup. Stir and let stand for 5 minutes.
- 1 +3/4 teaspoons cream of tartar + 1 cup milk
Can you Freeze Pancakes
Pancakes can easily be frozen and enjoyed for breakfast another day! Simply place some parchment paper on a baking sheet and line the pancakes on top without touching each other. Place another sheet of parchment on top and freeze for a few hours. Remove them from the freezer and stack them up in a labeled freezer bag.
Reheating Frozen Pancakes
-Oven Method: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and top with frozen pancakes. Add foil on top of the pancakes and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
-Microwave Method: Heat a stack of frozen pancakes in the microwave for approximately 1 ½- 2 minutes.
How Long are Frozen Pancakes Good for
Frozen pancakes are best if used within 1-2 months.

Sweet and fluffy pancakes served with fresh fruit and warm syrup. They taste just like IHOP's classic buttermilk pancakes, but are even better made at home!
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg beatened
- 1¼ cups buttermilk
- 2 Tablespoons butter melted
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well-combined.
In a medium bowl, combine the egg and buttermilk. Pour into the flour mixture and stir. Stir in the melted butter and sugar.
Heat a griddle or large, nonstick skillet to medium heat. Coat with butter or nonstick cooking spray. (I prefer butter.)
Drop 1/3 cup of batter onto the heated surface. Once the top begins to bubble, wait an additional 30 seconds or so, then flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until each side is golden brown.
Repeat with the remaining batter, reapplying more butter or nonstick spray in between each pancake. You may need to decrease the heat to medium-low about halfway through.
Serve with syrup or fresh fruit and enjoy!
