Easy Light and Fluffy Pancakes With Crispy Edges

Cracker Barrel restaurants serve incredible pancakes. Light and fluffy with crisp edges, and they boast a moist and tender crumb. How can you recreate these delicious pancakes at home?

  • Pancakes are popular all over the world, and they date back to as far as 5th century Greece. Then, they were called tagenites, and these early renditions were made with wheat flour, olive oil, honey and curdled milk. In the United States they are also known as hotcakes, griddle cakes, or flapjacks. Johnnycakes were a traditional cornmeal flat-bread popular in early America.
  • Although pancakes made "from scratch" require a little more effort than those whipped up from a box mix, the results are well worth it. Made with a secret ingredient, crunchy cornmeal, these are some of the tastiest homemade pancakes you'll ever sink your teeth into. Plenty of baking powder makes them fluffy.
  • The secret method? Be sure to brush the griddle with melted butter before pouring the batter. Your edges will be crispy and delicious, just like Cracker Barrel's. Be sure to follow the tips for foolproof pancakes every time.

Find the recipe and instructions in this article, and at the end of this page learn about some variations and how to troubleshoot less-than-perfect ones.

4.3 stars from 407 ratings of Fluffy & Tender Pancakes with Crispy Edges
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: One dozen medium-sized pancakes

Ingredients

Cornmeal, the secret ingredient.
Cornmeal, the secret ingredient.
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups buttermilk, room temperature (see tips for buttermilk substitute)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow or white cornmeal
  • 2 Tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

How to Keep Them Warm:

Place a cookie sheet or large plate in a 200 Fahrenheit oven. Keep pancakes on the plate, without covering them, for up to one hour.




Instructions

  1. Combine milk and white vinegar. Set aside for a few minutes, until the milk thickens slightly. Add the rest of the wet ingredients and beat with a fork until well blended.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients together into a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Add wet ingredients to the dry mix.
  4. Combine gently, mixing only until the ingredients are incorporated. Be careful not to over-mix.
  5. Heat a griddle to medium-high heat (375 F). Sprinkle a few drops of water onto the griddle. When the water "dances" and sizzles, the griddle is ready to use.
  6. Brush melted butter onto hot griddle.
  7. Pour or ladle about 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle.
  8. Cook pancake on the first side for 1-3 minutes, or until the surface fills with bubbles.
  9. With a wide spatula, carefully flip pancake. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.
  10. Serve immediately with butter and your choice of toppings.

Make Berry or Banana Pancakes

Blueberry Pancakes
Blueberry Pancakes | Source

Berry

  • If using fresh berries: Sprinkle a tablespoon of fresh blueberries or raspberries over the uncooked surface of pancake before flipping.
  • If using frozen berries: Rinse thawed berries thoroughly. Sprinkle a tablespoon of berries over the uncooked side of pancake before flipping.

Banana

  • Thinly slice a banana. Carefully lay several slices on the uncooked side of pancake before flipping.

Troubleshooting

  • Burned: griddle temperature too high.
  • Dry and pale: griddle temperature too low.
  • Dense or flat: not enough baking powder or baking powder wasn't fresh.
  • Tough: batter was overly mixed (see tips above).
  • Raw: pancake was flipped too soon/not cooked long enough on one or both sides.


Important Tips

  • Always use room temperature ingredients. Set out the eggs on the countertop the night before.
  • Save the hand mixer for cakes and hand stir the batter instead. Gently fold in the ingredients with a spatula until just combined for tender cakes.
  • For extra lofty ones, separate egg whites from yolks. Beat the whites until stiff then gently fold into pancake batter.
  • A rule of thumb: thick batter makes thick pancakes, thin batter makes thin pancakes.

Other Useful Tips:

  • Sift dry ingredients for more consistent results.
  • Cracker Barrel's original recipe includes rye flour. If you'd like, add a couple tablespoons of rye or whole wheat flour to the unbleached flour.
  • Measure out dry ingredients the night before for quick assembly in the morning.
  • Be careful not to overbeat the mix because this develops gluten and makes them tough. Use a spatula and fold gently, just until ingredients are incorporated—and not a stir more! It's okay to leave a few flour lumps and streaks in the batter.
  • Pancakes are best enjoyed with real maple syrup and butter.
  • Using a pastry brush, butter the griddle before pouring out each one.
  • You can omit the butter for lower fat versions, but be aware that low-fat ones are drier and more cottony.
  • If you don't have buttermilk on hand, measure 1 tablespoon of white vinegar into 2 cups of room temperature milk. Allow milk to rest while measuring other ingredients (it will thicken slightly). Use sour milk as directed.
  • For more nutritious pancakes, substitute 1/2 cup of quick oats for 1/2 cup of the flour.
  • Drizzle with Exotic Wild Berry Sauce for a special treat.
  • Pour tiny pancakes, four inches across, and build breakfast sandwiches in the style of these Homemade English Muffin sandwiches.

    RTalloni, I'm glad these tips will be useful for your pancake making endeavors. I've never made them with almond milk, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. I wonder what garbanzo flour pancakes would be like?? I look forward to reading your pancake recipe makeover someday. : )

    RTalloni 4 years ago from the short journey

    Thanks for the very helpful pancake trouble shooting tips, and for the add-ins and griddle info. All of those details are good to keep in mind! The recipe looks wonderful, but I don't get to use recipes that require traditional cow milk ingredients. Many recipes work well by substituting almond milk (or goat's milk), but this is one in which the substitution would likely change the taste enough to be noticeable. Still, I think my pancakes are going to improve just from reading your Cracker Barrel-Style Recipe hub. :)

    You know it's the first time I got to stumble on this hub, and it's so timely because these days I am getting very much into the pancake craze, though they're all premade mixes. I love to experiment with different ingredients. You did your recipe from scratch, I would like to try it, the cornmeal I think is the "secret" for a delicious pancake! Although I've been reading your hubs, my apologies for following you lately, cos sometimes I'm forgetful (I thought I've followed you already). :)

    Calculus-geometry, the cornmeal gives the pancake edges a little crispiness. It's always a good idea to brush the griddle with real butter before pouring each pancake, too. I'm very picky about pancakes and although I try other recipes, I always find myself returning to this one. If I have time, I like to separate the egg whites, beat them until stiff and fold them into the pancake batter for extra fluffy pancakes. Enjoy! Thanks so much for coming by.

    Marites Mabugat-Simbajon 4 years ago from Toronto, Ontario

    These are some new pancake recipes here. I love pancakes! I remember the kind when I was still in high school back in the Philippines. We call our pancakes "hot cakes". When I came to Canada, I was wondering what a pancake was. A mobile vendor sells these hot cakes outside our school grounds and near our parish. The mix was thinner and dark yellow like the colour of a raw yolk. After it's cooked, a spoonful of margarine was spread over it, then sprinkled with sugar. This was my favourite school snack and I would always have an extra in a plastic inside the pocket of my uniform.

    Would love to bookmark this and sharing. Thank you, vespawoolf!

    We love pancakes and I love them with the cripy edges but never knew how to get the edges like that. Now I know. Voted. Shared.

    Alocsin, if you can get past the lack of atmosphere at CB, the pancakes make it worth a visit. Always nice to hear from you!

    I love this style of pancake but always thought the crispy edges were accidental. Didn't know that Cracker Barrel made these regularly. I'll have to pay them a visit. Voting this Up and Useful.

    Baking Bread-101, enjoy the pancakes! I am a maple syrup lover, but my husband enjoys strawberries or blueberries on to with real whipped cream. Freezing is a great idea. It makes the morning rush so much less stressful. Thank you for coming by!

    OK, I have enough to do and NOW YOU go and give us this delicious recipe! I'm just going to have to make it. I tend to make a zillion at a time and freeze some so I can pop them in the toaster when I have a morning rush with my little girl. Hey, if people spend money to buy frozen ones, why not just make them and freeze them myself!

    Anyway, all joking aside, I do plan to make time to cook these pancakes - they look wonderful. But for us, it is fruit on top (I actually don't like maple syrup).

    I enjoyed reading the history of pancakes and learned something new from you. Thank you!

    Buckleupdorothy, thank you for your enthusiastic comment! You're right about cornmeal in pizza crusts, and now that you've mentioned it I may just have to do homemade pizza this weekend. Enjoy the pancakes and real maple syrup.

    oh man oh man oh man! Maple syrup is such a luxury - and a friend of mine will be visiting soon and bringing a new supply. AND I WILL SO BE MAKING THESE PANCAKES EVERY WEEKEND UNTIL IT'S GONE.

    You know what else cornmeal is super excellent for? Pizza crusts!

    Voted up and shared and personally bookmarked. Yee Freaking Haw!

    Cheapstuff, thank you for coming by. The lemon juice and milk is a substitute for buttermilk, but some of us like it even better. Enjoy the pancakes!

    Really, lemon juice? Never tried that. Going to have to give that and the cornmeal a try. Great guide, the pictures are very delicious looking.
