Snickers Buttermilk Pancakes

Here in Dunedin we have an amazing cafe that serves the fluffiest, most delicious pancakes you will ever eat. Well, actually their whole menu is fantastic but the pancakes are just something extra special, no where else even compares. As well as their normal pancake menu they do a 'pancake of the month', last month the star was Snickers Pancakes.

As soon as I saw this on the menu I was sold. Pancakes with caramel, peanuts, chocolate, and whipped cream. What could be more perfect?

Unfortunately the month had to end and we had to wave goodbye to the most delicious pancake flavor ever invented. So what did I do? Made my own version right away of course!

Snickers Buttermilk Pancakes

Makes 10

2 Cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 Cup buttermilk
2 Tbsp butter, melted

To serve:

Whipped cream (sweetened with vanilla extract and icing sugar)
Salted caramel
chocolate sauce (recipe below, store brought is absolutely fine too!)
chopped peanuts

Salted Caramel:

1 Cup Sugar
90 g butter, chopped
1/2 Cup cream
1 tsp salt

Salted Caramel:

1. Heat the sugar in a medium saucepan over a medium-low heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is melted. Add the butter and stir for a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat, and allow to sit for a minute or two.

2. VERY slowly drizzle in the cream, stirring as you do so. Return to a very gentle heat and boil for about 1 minute.

3. Remove from the heat and stir in the salt. Cool, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Microwave before use to allow a pouring consistency.


1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, vanilla, buttermilk, and butter in another.

2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until everything is combined.

3. Heat some butter in a large fry pan and cook pancakes using 1/3 of a cup of mixture for each one. Cook on one side until bubbles start to appear around the edges, then flip and cook on the other side.

4. Once each pancake is cooked, place it in the oven on a low heat to keep warm while you make the others.

5. Top the pancakes with chocolate and caramel sauces, peanuts, and whipped cream.
