How to Make Maple Cream Pancake
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, heavy cream, maple syrup, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
- Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat and lightly grease it with butter or cooking spray.
- Pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the hot skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
- Remove the pancakes from the skillet and keep them warm.
- Serve the pancakes hot, drizzled with extra maple syrup and a dollop of whipped cream if desired.
- Buttermilk can be substituted with regular milk, but the tangy flavor of buttermilk adds a nice dimension to the pancakes.
- If you prefer a stronger maple flavor, you can increase the amount of maple syrup in the batter.
- Feel free to add your favorite toppings, such as fresh berries, chopped nuts, or chocolate chips.
- You can keep the cooked pancakes warm in a preheated oven (200°F or 93°C) while you finish cooking the rest of the batch.

Tips for making perfect pancakes
- Ensure your griddle or skillet is preheated to the right temperature (around 350°F or 175°C) to cook the pancakes evenly.
- Don’t overmix the batter; a few lumps are okay. Overmixing can make the pancakes tough.
- Use a measuring cup to pour the batter for uniform-sized pancakes.
- Keep the pancakes warm in the oven or on a plate covered with a kitchen towel to retain their warmth while cooking the rest.
- Serve with additional maple syrup and a dollop of whipped cream for an extra indulgent experience.
- Gluten-Free: Use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend in place of regular flour.
- Dairy-Free: Substitute dairy-free milk and cream, such as almond milk and coconut cream, for buttermilk and heavy cream.
- Fruit Pancakes: Add fresh berries (blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries) to the batter before cooking.
- Chocolate Chip Pancakes: Sprinkle mini chocolate chips into the batter for a delightful chocolate twist.
Enjoy your Maple Cream Pancakes as a delicious and comforting breakfast treat that’s perfect for any morning occasion!
