Yield: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1¼ c. buttermilk
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
Directions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add the buttermilk, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract. Lightly beat until combined.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, being sure to not overmix. Lumps make for fluffy pancakes!
  4. Place a pan over medium heat and add ½ tbsp. of butter. Scoop the batter out using ¼ measuring cup and pour into the center of the heated pan. Allow the pancakes to cook approximately 2 minute or until you see small bubbles on the surface of the pancake. Flip, and cook for 1 additional minute. The pancakes should be lightly golden brown in color.
Notes
-For a healthier option, try substituting ½ c. of all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour. Adding 1-2 additional tablespoons of buttermilk might be necessary.
-Blueberries, raspberries, chocolate chips or bacon can be added to the batter as the last and final step (before cooking them).
