  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 cups buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Additional butter for cooking pancakes
  • Pure maple syrup and butter, for serving, if desired


  • Preheat an electric griddle to 375 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract together.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Batter will be lumpy. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes.
  • Grease the griddle with butter. Pour about 1/2 cup of batter onto the hot griddle. Cook pancake until bubbles form and edges are set, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Continue making pancakes until batter is gone.
  • Serve pancakes immediately with butter and maple syrup.


If you don’t have a griddle, you can cook the pancakes on the stove in a skillet.
To keep pancakes warm, put pancakes on a large baking sheet in a single layer and put in a 200 °F until ready to eat.
Pancakes will keep wrapped in the fridge for up to 5 days. To freeze, wrap cooled pancakes with plastic wrap and put in a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 1 month.
