Fluffy American Pancakes

Pancakes are happy food. When I was about nine years old, I compiled all my favorite brunch recipes together into a book and stuck it to the kitchen cork board with a thumbtack as a not-so-subtle reminder to my parents what I wanted when the sun rose on Saturday morning. That book is long gone and I didn’t think to save the file so for this post I am linking someone else’s Dad’s Buttermilk Pancake recipe (thanks, L.V. Anderson). This photo may look familiar from my Shrove Tuesday post earlier this year.

American Pancakes with Raspberries and Maple Syrup

Because I live in Ireland, I am going to now tell you where you can find a true American buttermilk pancake in the Republic. This is a partial list and one I will add to over time so if you know of a place I’ve overlooked or don’t know about, please add a comment.


Fenns Quay serves fluffy buttermilk pancakes in their Saturday brunch menu (8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.). I ate them last week for Saturday brunch and they’re the real deal. (shown below)

There are many options for Brunch in Cork, if you’re interested in a meal including but not limited to pancakes.
