These pretty silver dollar–size pancakes crowned with smoked salmon are a party favourite. For a richer topping, substitute crème fraîche for the light sour cream. If you like, add a grind of coarse black pepper right before serving.

  • Portion size 24 servings
  • Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: January 2013


  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 6 oz smoked salmon cut in 24 strips
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill


In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together buttermilk, egg and 1 tbsp of the butter; pour over dry ingredients. Whisk until combined but still lumpy. Stir in green onions.

Lightly brush large nonstick skillet or griddle with some of the remaining butter; heat over medium-high heat. Using scant 1 tbsp for each pancake, pour in batter, spreading slightly to form circles. Cook until bubbles break on top and don't fill in, about 1-1/2 minutes. Flip; cook until bottoms are golden, about 1-1/2 minutes. Transfer to warmed plate; cover and keep warm. Repeat with remaining butter and batter.

Top each pancake with 1/2 tsp of the sour cream, 1 piece of the smoked salmon and pinch of the dill.
