Mothers day is in just a few days! What better way to treat them by making breakfast in bed. And a classic way to go is always making pancakes. At Cape Ann Olive Oil Co. we make our pancakes in a very special way. Instead of using melted butter, we use our Butter Olive Oil.

This creamy extra virgin olive oil is naturally infused with the rich flavor of butter by using only plant-based ingredients. You can use this golden, vegetarian, dairy-free olive oil as a butter substitute in baking or anywhere you might use melted butter; like pancakes! And trust us, you will never miss the fact that melted butter is not in your meal. It tastes just like the real butter!

This is a simple and fun recipe to make with your kids. To add a little extra spark to your pancakes mix some bananas, chocolate chips, or blueberries right into the batter.

Cooking Note:
The amount of milk you use will determine how thick these pancakes are. Start with the smaller amount suggested and add more if the batter seems too thick. Try to have the milk at room temperature before mixing and take care to not overbeat: a few lumps in the batter will do no harm. You can make lighter, fluffier pancakes by separating the egg, beating the white, and folding it in last. 


  • 1/2-3/4 cup buttermilk or milk
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Butter Olive Oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Maple syrup or honey


  1. Beat the milk, olive oil, and egg lightly in a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt and add them all at once to the first mixture, stirring just enough to dampen the flour. Fold in the egg whites if you decided to make your pancakes fluffier.
  3. Lightly butter or grease a griddle or frying pan. If you wish for small pancakes, drop about 2 Tbsp of batter onto the pan. For larger pancakes, drop about 1/4 cup onto the pan.
  4. Bake until the pancakes are full of bubbles on the top and the undersides are lightly browned. Flip them and brown the other sides.
  5. Placed finished pancakes on a plate and serve immediately. Enjoy!
