  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Butter or oil for cooking


1. Preheat Griddle or Pan:

Preheat a non-stick griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease the surface with butter or oil.

2. Mix Dry Ingredients:

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.


3. Combine Wet Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until smooth.

4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to gently fold the mixture together until just combined. Do not overmix; a few lumps in the batter are okay.


5. Rest the Batter:

Let the pancake batter rest for about 5 minutes. This allows the baking powder and baking soda to activate and helps ensure fluffy pancakes.

6. Cook Pancakes:

Once the griddle or skillet is hot, pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the cooking surface for each pancake. Use the back of a spoon to spread the batter into a round shape if necessary.


7. Cook Until Bubbles Form:

Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles begin to form on the surface and the edges look set.

8. Flip and Cook Until Golden Brown:

Carefully flip the pancakes using a spatula, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side, or until golden brown and cooked through.


9. Keep Warm:

Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and cover loosely with aluminum foil to keep them warm while you cook the remaining pancakes.

10. Serve and Enjoy:

Serve the Buttermilk Pancakes warm with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar. Enjoy!
