Old Fashioned Pancakes
2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 ½ cups buttermilk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
In a bowl, using a whisk or an an electric mixer, beat the eggs on medium speed until frothy. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, vanilla and butter. Stir just until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps.
Heat a griddle or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Lightly grease the griddle with butter or nonstick cooking spray.
Pour about 1⁄3 cup batter, making the pancakes as big or little as you want. Cook until bubbles form on top and the batter is set, about 2 minutes. Using a spatula, flip the pancakes. Cook until golden brown on the other side, about 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more butter to the griddle as needed.
Serve with powdered sugar and jelly or your favorite syrup.
