  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar packed
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined.
  • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Heat a skillet over medium low heat. Spray lightly with cooking spray. (Or preheat a griddle to 375 degrees).
  • Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop the batter onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles begin to form in the middle of the pancake and the bubles on the outer edge of hte pancake have started to harden.

Keep in mind that you may need to turn the heat down on a skillet over a gas flame after the first few minutes.
