  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar until combined.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, butter, and vanilla until combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir it together until combined, do not overmix. If it seems a little too thick, add another tablespoon of buttermilk. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  • Place a nonstick skillet on the stove over medium heat. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  • Pour or scoop ¼ cup of the batter onto the skillet. Gently spread out the batter.
  • Cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes until bubbles rise to the surface and burst. Flip on the other side until golden brown.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter.
