    Ingredient Notes

    Ingredient Notes

    Fortunately, you only require simple pantry items for these pancakes!

  • Baking Soda: When combined with the buttermilk (an acidic substance), baking soda responds and forms bubbles, which provides us with wonderfully light and airy pancakes.
  • Baking Powder: A distinctive ingredient, baking powder sets itself apart from baking soda. As it encounters heat and liquid, this magical powder undergoes a reaction, resulting in a delightful expansion of the batter.
  • Granulated Sugar: Fret not, for this delightful concoction demands only a hint of sugar! Our sole intention is to infuse a subtle touch of sweetness, enhancing the overall flavor profile.
  • Eggs: The yolks will be incorporated into the batter while the egg whites are whipped to soft peaks, resulting in irresistibly fluffy Lucky Charms pancakes!
  • Buttermilk, a magical elixir, dances with our rising agents, bestowing upon the pancakes not only a symphony of delectable flavors and tantalizing moistness but also an impeccable cloud-like fluffiness.
  • Green Food Coloring: Feel free to utilize liquid food coloring or gel food coloring, whichever you have readily available.
  • Transform your morning meal into a delightful and vibrant experience that will captivate your entire family’s taste buds by adorning the emerald-hued pancakes with the enchanting Lucky Charms marshmallows!

    Make Ahead, Storing, and Freezing

    It is not advisable to prepare the pancake batter in advance and allow it to sit. Although it is important to let the batter rest for 10 minutes to enhance gluten formation and activate the baking powder and baking soda, it is crucial not to exceed the resting time.

    Recipe FAQs

    How can I achieve a light and fluffy texture for my pancakes?

    In order to achieve a delightful lift in your pancakes, it is essential to incorporate an acid element, with buttermilk being the optimal choice, to react with the baking soda. It is crucial to avoid excessive mixing of the batter. Instead, separate the eggs and whip the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Incorporate the egg whites into the batter at the very end by gently folding them in. It is perfectly acceptable, and even preferable, to have pockets of egg whites and/or flour in the batter. Embrace the lumpy texture, as it contributes to the best kind of pancake batter! Lastly, refrain from pressing down on the pancakes once they have been flipped. This action hinders their ability to rise and achieve a fluffy consistency.
