Servings: 24 Prep 40 mins Start to Finish 40 mins


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Butter or vegetable oil for cooking
  • Powdered sugar (optional)

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

2. In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, egg, oil, and vanilla. Whisk to combine.

3. Add buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter will be lumpy). Transfer batter to a pancake pen, if using.

4. Stick a large pan or griddle set over medium heat with butter or oil. Once hot, add batter to the pan. If using a pen, pour batter in X and O shapes. Otherwise, make round pancakes (you'll cut the X's and O's later). Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes or until the surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry. Flip and cook on the second side until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Place cooked pancakes on an ovenproof plate and store in the warmed oven until ready to serve. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
