'Buttermilk' Pancakes

*Dairy-Free
*No junk
*Could be converted into vegan or gluten-free
*Kid-approved



I've been buying store bought buttermilk for years, but as I have been getting older dairy hasn't been treating me oh-so-well. So I've cut out about 95% dairy out of my diet.  The only dairy that I still consume is butter and cheese.  I only use  butter to bake so that's not that much and I've cut my intake in cheese and that was kind of hard because I love cheese.

I've looked at several stores that do have tons of milk alternatives like soymilk, almondmilk, cashewmilk even rice or hempmilk, they didn't haven't  anything like a dairy-free buttermilk.  

So I decided to make my own,  its really easy and only takes two ingredients.  It almost gives you the same flavor and fluffiness like dairy buttermilk gives you when you use for cakes or pancakes.

 
How to make dairy-free 'buttermilk'
*2 cups of soymilk or almondmilk, sweetened or unsweetened  (I used Very Vanilla Soymilk)
*1 tablespoon of Vinegar (I used Apple Cider Vinegar)
 
Vinegar and Soymilk

Combine your dairy-free milk of your choosing  and vinegar in a large bowl.  Whisk together and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes.  It will become thick and creamy. 




Yields:~15 pancakes
Time: ~An hour and half

'Buttermilk' Pancakes
*3 cups of Unbleached Flour (I used King Arthur's Flour)
*2 cups of Soy 'Buttermilk' 
*3 Eggs
*1/4 cup of Sugar 
*2 teaspoons of Canola Oil (Any unflavored oil but Olive Oil)
*2 teaspoons of Honey 
*1 tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
*2 teaspoons of Baking Powder
*1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
*Pinch of Sea Salt

Combine baking soda, baking powder and 'buttermilk' together, let it  sit for 5 or so minutes. After the 'buttermilk' mixture has sit mix eggs, sugar, sea salt, canola oil, honey, vanilla extract and flour. 



Whisk together and let it sit for an hour.   About five minutes before cooking, heat up a non-stick skillet or pan. Measure out half of  cup batter in a ziplock bag then squeeze out in a round circle.
Watch for it bubble up, it takes about two minutes for that  happen.  Flip over and let it cook for another two minutes.






Nice golden brown color and fluffy.


Enjoy with your favorite syrup  or spread. Fry up some bacon or sausage.  Store any leftover in a clean ziplock bag or container in the refrigerator for three days, in the freezer up to a month.  But I doubt you'll have any.

    1. Thank you. It taste the same as if you used regular buttermilk but not so rough on the stomach like it was on me. You can also use almondmilk instead of soymilk.

    1. That's why I had to create a different type of buttermilk for pancakes or baking because regular buttermilk would mess with my tummy.

  5. We're huge fans of pancakes at our house. My husband makes them every Sunday morning for us and we have breakfast in bed. Buttermilk makes them all that much better! (ps: Extra syrup is mandatory!)

  9. Dairy free buttermilk sounds lush and as much as I love dairy, having too much of it does upset my stomach. These pancakes look tasty!

  11. These sound great and look lovely! I love and live on almond milk but never knew you could use it as an ingredient in substitute buttermilk! I'll be having these with my fave topping - peanut butter!
