FLUFFY BUTTERMILK PANCAKES WITH OATMEAL AND PECANS

There is a restaurant that we go to often that serves the best pecan pancakes. I just love the nutty taste of their pancakes. That is probably why I love the oatmeal in these pancakes; oatmeal actually has a nutty taste, I believe. The combination of the oatmeal and pecan really compliments each ingredient.

Here is what makes this a great recipe:

  • By using Bisquick, you actually cut out some of the steps required.
  • You do not have to buy buttermilk…you can make your own with an acid such as lemon juice or vinegar.
  • This easy recipe requires 20 minutes of your time.

To make this recipe, you will need:

  • Bisquick
  • oatmeal (I use the quick oats)
  • pecans (finely chopped)
  • brown sugar
  • eggs
  • milk
  • lemon juice (to sour the milk)
  • vanilla
  • oil (I like canola)
  • cooking spray

I like buttermilk flavoring when baking, but I do not like straight buttermilk to drink. So I never buy it in the carton for drinking. When baking, I just sour the milk with an acid such as lemon juice. Just use a measuring cup and pour in the lemon juice first, then the milk. Let it sit for a bit, and you will actually see small curds form.

Come along with me as we make Bisquick pancakes.

A full printable recipe is available in the recipe card toward the end of this post.

  1. Sour the milk with the lemon juice, and set aside.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in the soured milk.
  3. Let this mixture sit for five minutes to let the oatmeal plump up.
  4. Lightly spray a griddle with cooking spray.
  5. Pour the pancakes on the hot griddle, checking often for doneness before flipping and cooking on the other side.

Question:

Can I use real buttermilk? Yes you can. I just never have it on hand.

This recipe uses Bisquick, and Bisquick has been around a long time. By using Bisquick, you cut out some of the ingredients that need to be added to a recipe. Bisquick consists of flour, shortening, salt and baking powder. Because of the baking powder in the Bisquick, be sure to check the expiration date. Baking powder does lose its effectiveness after time.

When should I serve Bisquick pancakes?

These would be great for a weekend treat or Sunday brunch. Serve alongside fried bacon or sausage for a full meal.

In addition, they warm nicely in the microwave and freeze really well.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup Bisquick, sifted
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal, quick-cook (dry)
  • 1/8 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup finely-chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Pour the lemon juice in a small bowl. Add the milk to the lemon juice. Let it sit a bit to sour the milk. You will actually see small curds form.

  2. Mix all the ingredients, including the milk, together in a medium-size bowl, and let rest for 5 minutes.

  3. Lightly spray a griddle with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat the griddle for a few minutes over medium-high heat.

  4. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop the batter in the cup and pour on the hot griddle. (you may need to adjust the heat down) When the pancakes start to bubble, carefully lift to see if they are medium brown before flipping.

  5. Continue to cook the pancakes until all of the batter has been used.

  6. Serve with your choice of butter, peanut butter, and/or syrup.

Can the pancakes be made without the buttermilk powder?

Yes Betty--I do not buy processed buttermilk, but they would be even better with that. Or in a pinch, just use milk.
