Martha Stewart’s Buttermilk Pancakes have been a family favorite for close to twenty years.
Why are Martha Stewart’s pancakes a favorite? Because Martha Stewart’s Buttermilk Pancakes are an easy to make fluffy homemade pancake.
Skip the box of pancake mix and make them homemade. These pancakes are so good you won’t want to use a mix again.
And if you are gluten free I am including how to make them gluten free.
I was recently talking to my sister about all the recipes that I shared for my Year of Martha Stewart Cooking in 2021. Her first question was something like, “You did share her buttermilk pancake recipe, didn’t you? ”
After I thought about it for a minute, I realized that I had not shared her pancake recipe as part of my challenge.
My sister could not believe I forgot to share Martha Stewart’s pancake recipe with you. She informed me that I had to share it. According to her my challenge was not complete until I shared this recipe.
My sisters and I have been making the buttermilk pancake recipe from Martha Stewart’s Favorite Comfort Foods cookbook for years.
The cookbook was published in 1999 and I think we have been making this pancake recipe for almost that long.
The cookbook is no longer published, so unless you can find a used copy you can’t buy the cookbook. And I think that is too bad because my sisters and I will tell you that it is one of our favorite Martha Stewart cookbooks.
Multiple recipes from this cookbook have become family favorites for us.
A Classic Fluffy Buttermilk Pancake Recipe
Martha Stewart’s Buttermilk Pancake recipe is a fairly classic buttermilk pancake recipe. However, Martha makes it better. I am not sure how, but she does. This is one of my family’s all time favorite pancake recipes.
They are a fluffy from scratch pancake.
Way back in 2009, before I was gluten free, I even shared a whole wheat buttermilk pancake version of this recipe.
Can I make Martha Stewart Pancakes Gluten Free?
Yes, you can! This recipe makes a delicious gluten free pancake. Over the years I have shared a couple of ways that you can make them gluten free.

I have used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free blend and King Arthur’s Measure for Measure gluten free blend to make them gluten free, but my favorite way to make them gluten free is to use the individual gluten free flours. I shared how to do that in my Gluten Free Buttermilk Pancake Recipe.
