My Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple-Pecan Syrup

Tammy Raynes


I have recently started trying to make my own syrups and sauces. Some have been failures, but some, like this syrup has been a success.

Of course, what good is syrup without some delicious buttermilk pancakes to go with it?

How to Make My Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple-Pecan Syrup


  1. FOR PANCAKES: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, melted butter, and eggs. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; whisk just until combined (batter will be thick and slightly lumpy).
  2. Lightly brush a large nonstick skillet or griddle with canola oil; heat over medium heat. Using a measuring cup, pour approximately 1/3 cup batter onto prepared pan, spacing 1 inch apart. Cook until bubbles appear on surface and bottoms are golden brown, approximately 3 minutes. Flip pancakes; cook until bottoms are golden brown, approximately 2 minutes.
  3. FOR SYRUP: In a small saucepan, stir together maple syrup, pecans, and zest. Cook over medium-low heat until warm, approximately 5 minutes. Cover, and refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
