We love Cracker Barrel Restaurant pancakes! I developed this copycat version that is a homage to the taste and style of the delicious Cracker Barrel Buttermilk Pancake.

  • Servings: 5
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes


2 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 cups Full Fat Buttermilk
1 Egg
Vegetable Oil, for cooking
Whipped Butter & Maple Syrup, for serving


Preheat your griddle or pan. (I usually use griddle heated to about 375-400 degrees).

Mix all of the dry ingredients together well.

Mix in the buttermilk to the dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, crack the egg and whisk it incorporating air into the egg until it is light and bubbly. Eggs that are not straight out of the fridge will whip up easier.

Add the egg to the other ingredients and mix together JUST to incorporate. Do not over mix.

Grease the griddle with a bit of vegetable oil for each set of pancakes.

Drop approx. 1/2 cup + a little bit more of the batter onto the hot griddle and spread it out. Cook until the bottom side is golden. Flip and repeat.

Serve with whipped butter and warm maple syrup.

These taste best served right off the griddle / pan onto the plate for immediate eating!!

Helpful Tips:

When we cannot make it to the restaurant, this is my go-to pancake recipe at home. It is yummy as is or with blueberries added.
