Buttermilk Pancake Breakfast Bar

We’re continuing with our theme of Mother’s Day brunch ideas. Mother’s Day is coming in hot and so is this cast iron pancake brunch bar. Be prepared to get a few bonus points from your significant other because these aren't just any pancakes, they're homemade.

Pancakes from scratch are great, but pancakes without the toppings leave a lot to be desired. So we’ve also dropped a list of topping ideas with this pancake recipe to help make your Mother’s Day brunch a huge success.

The Ingredients


  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup 2% or whole milk
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Butter or oil for cooking


  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Bananas
  • Peanut butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate chips
  • Peanut butter chips

The Steps

  1. Preheat your Stargazer cast iron skillet on low for 5-10 minutes before turning the temperature up to medium. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, eggs and milk. Using a whisk or a fork, stir the ingredients just enough to moisten all the dry ingredients and form a batter. There should be small lumps in your batter. If your batter is smooth, you’ve overmixed it.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of butter or oil to the skillet until melted and covering the cooking surface. Pour ½ cup of batter into the cooking surface (for smaller pancakes, use less batter). Cook on medium heat for 1-2 minutes until you see bubbles forming in the batter on the top surface of the pancake. Flip the pancake and cook on the other side for approximately 1-2 minutes. Don’t rush the process. Each side should be golden brown in color.
  3. Repeat these steps until you’ve used all the batter.
  4. Stack the pancakes high on a plate and serve alongside a smorgasbord of delicious toppings.
