Best Vanilla Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes

Updated: Jun 30, 2022

These Vanilla Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes are quick, easy, and delicious! Not only can this recipe easily feed a crowd, but they are so good there is no need for syrup(or any other topping)!

If feeding the masses isn’t what you are looking for, they make great leftovers. Many of my recipes feed a large number of people since we have a family of 8. Also, I don’t want to spend all of my time in the kitchen. Typically, I make mass quantities and multiple items on one or two days during the week. This frees up more time for me to spend with the kids!

In our house, pancakes for dinner are a go-to. Over the years, I decided to add my own spin to the traditional pancake recipe to create something new and exciting! An added bonus was no longer needing to clean up sticky syrup messes. This recipe is one of our absolute favorites! Need to use up buttermilk from other baking adventures? Yep, this recipe takes care of that too!

I will share a little secret with you…a great pancake turner or flipper is a must(as well as a fantastic recipe, of course)! Here is the link to my favorite pancake turner! Read to the end of the recipe for another tip to ensure your pancake flipping/turning success.

Best Vanilla Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes


  • .5 Cup Sugar

  • 2 Eggs

  • 4 Cups Flour

  • 4 Cups Buttermilk

  • 1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

  • .5 Cup Salted Butter (Melted and cooled a bit)

  • 1 tsp Cinnamon (More to taste if you love it)

  • 3 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 2 tsp Baking Soda

  • 3 tsp Baking Powder


  1. Warm griddle to 250 degrees then grease with cooking spray or butter. I used butter.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and sugar. Whisk wet ingredients together until smooth.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder then add to the wet ingredients.

  4. Stir wet and dry ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix. More buttermilk can be added if you enjoy a thinner pancake. Add a half cup of flour for a thicker pancake.

  5. Pour desired amount of pancake batter on the griddle. Flip when bubbles start to form. These are a lighter colored pancake so be careful not to over cook.

  6. Tip: Wipe off the pancake turner between each flip. It keeps the pancakes from sticking to it!
