1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Add all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. In another bowl, beat one egg lightly, then add the buttermilk, oil or butter, and the vanilla.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients slowly mixing until all ingredients are fully incorporated. Do not overwork flour. It's okay for batter to be lumpy.
Using a 1/3 measuring cup, scoop some batter and pour into the preheated griddle or pan and cook for 2 minutes on one side and 1 minute on the other. Repeat the process.
Makes 6 pancakes for 3 people
