Brown Sugar Pancakes Recipe

Brown sugar pancakes are a mouthwatering variation of the traditional pancake recipe. The addition of brown sugar adds a rich caramel-like flavor and a touch of sweetness that elevates these pancakes to new levels of deliciousness.


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix. A few lumps in the batter are fine.
  4. Heat a non-stick griddle or a large skillet over medium heat and lightly grease it with butter or cooking spray.
  5. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake.
  6. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, then flip it over and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  8. Serve the brown sugar pancakes warm with your favorite toppings such as maple syrup, fresh fruits, or whipped cream.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Can I use dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar for this recipe?
    Yes, you can use dark brown sugar if you prefer a more intense caramel flavor in your pancakes. It will add a slightly different taste but will still result in delicious brown sugar pancakes.
  2. Can I substitute the buttermilk with regular milk?
    While buttermilk adds a tangy flavor and helps create a tender texture, you can substitute it with regular milk if you don't have buttermilk on hand. To mimic the acidity of buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to 1 cup of milk, stir, and let it sit for 5 minutes before using it in the recipe.
  3. Can I make the batter ahead of time?
    Yes, you can prepare the batter in advance. Mix all the dry ingredients together in one bowl and combine all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Keep them refrigerated until ready to use. When you're ready to make the pancakes, simply combine the wet and dry ingredients and proceed with the cooking instructions.
