  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2-3 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl lightly combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside
  • In a small bowl melt butter and let cool for about 5-minutes. Lightly beat eggs in a small bowl.
  • Add buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture and use a spoon or rubber spatula to lightly combine. Add the beaten egg and mix just until combined. Batter should still have small lumps. Let batter rest for 10-15 minutes
  • Heat a griddle to 325F or a large non-stick pan to medium.
  • To make 5" pancakes add 1/4 cup batter to griddle or pan. Cook in batches and do not overcrowd pancakes. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface, about 2 minutes, and then flip and cook an additional 1 minute.
