DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
  • In another bowl, whisk the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter together; blend well.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients; mix with a whisk, stopping when everything is just combined (don’t worry if batter is a bit lumpy).
  • The batter will bubble and become spongy almost immediately.
  • Lightly butter or oil your griddle or skillet; preheat to medium (if using an electric griddle, heat to 350°).
  • Spoon ¼ cup batter onto griddle for each pancake, allowing space for spreading.
  • When the undersides of the pancakes are golden and the tops are lightly speckled with bubbles that pop and stay open, flip the pancakes over with a wide spatula and cook until the other sides are light brown.
  • Serve immediately with topping of choice.
