Wednesdays Unplugged – Ger’s Awesome Thin Buttermilk Pancakes



"Children have only to dream and have fun and laugh 400 times a day. " ~ Beverly Beckham


NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!


This is the last week of summer before school starts and both of our children needed child care… so we have been having a weeklong daycamp at Grandma and Grandpa's house, with a sleepover tonight. We went swimming Monday, Tuesday had great fun at Big Stone Mini Golf and Sculpture Park, today went to Chutes and Ladders playground at Highland Park, Friday the State  Fair… and tomorrow morning I get to go to Kindergarten Roundup with our 5-year-old granddaughter… a full week of fun and laughter!


This recipe was from our granddaughter's birthday dinner last month, and it seems like an appropriate time to share it. I don't know who Ger is, but I found this recipe for THIN buttermilk pancakes at and they got rave reviews.


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Optional: blueberries, raspberries, bananas, chocolate chips…

Put eggs in large bowl and beat lightly. Add buttermilk, flour, salt, baking soda and melted butter. Mix lightly (do not overmix). Heat griddle and butter lightly. Drop batter onto griddle to form small circles, add small amounts of fruit or chocolate chips. Turn when batter is partially cooked. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
