Giant Fluffy Pancake that will make breakast more delicious and enjoyable!


  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Optional toppings: butter, maple syrup, whipped cream, berries, etc.


  1. In a medium size bowl, combine oats and buttermilk.  Cover and let sit overnight in the fridge.
  2. In the morning, add eggs, butter, and vanilla extract to the oats and whisk to combine.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir until just combined.
  4. Spray a 7 inch springform pan or cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Scrape batter into pan and smooth the top.
  5. Add 1 ½ cups of water to the pressure cooker pot and place a trivet inside.  Place dish on the trivet using a silicone or tinfoil sling to make for easier removal.
  6. Secure the lid and turn pressure cooker knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 30 minutes. 
  7. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 10 minutes and then release any remaining pressure. 
  8. Serve hot with toppings of your choice.


  • In a pinch, you can skip the overnight soak of buttermilk and oats.  The soak makes the oats softer and the pancake more fluffy, but it’s still amazing if you need to skip this step.  
  • For a blueberry pancake, fold in 1 cup of blueberries after the dry ingredients.
  • For a lighter wheat taste, I always use White Whole Wheat Flour.  Red wheat is darker, stronger tasting, and will make these pancakes heavy.
  • Buttermilk works best in this recipe, but you can substitute with 1 cup yogurt and ¼ cup milk if needed.
  • For a sweeter pancake, add 1 tablespoon sugar to the batter.
  • The recipe can be doubled if needed and cooked in a 7 – 7.5 inch springform pan for 45 minutes.
