Preparation time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes | Serves: 4


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix; the batter should be slightly lumpy.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or cooking spray.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Repeat with the remaining batter, greasing the skillet as needed.
  7. Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings.
