Diner-Style Pancakes

Buttermilk adds moisture and tangy flavor to these pancakes; baking soda helps with even browning.

Yield:
about 12 pancakes
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for brushing
  • Butter and maple syrup, for serving
Directions
  • Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter in a medium bowl until incorporated. Whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture until just combined (it's OK if there are a few lumps).

  • Heat a griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat; lightly brush with butter. Pour 1/2 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake and cook until bubbles form on top and the bottom is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. (If the pancakes are browning too quickly, reduce the heat to medium low.) Flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side, about 1 more minute. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter, brushing the pan with more butter as necessary. Serve with butter and syrup.
