Preparation time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes | Serves: 4


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 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 stir until just combined. Do not overmix; it’s okay if the batter is a little 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, adjusting the heat as needed.
  7. Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh berries, or whipped cream.
