  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Butter or oil for cooking


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Do not overmix; lumps are okay.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or oil.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake, spacing them apart to allow for spreading.
  6. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes and the edges look set, about 2-3 minutes.
  7. Carefully flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Repeat with the remaining batter, adjusting the heat as needed to prevent burning.
  9. Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings such as maple syrup, fresh berries, whipped cream, or powdered sugar.
  10. Enjoy your delicious pastry-style pancakes!

These pancakes are a delightful twist on the classic breakfast favorite, offering a hint of sophistication to your morning routine.
