  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. In a small bowl, mix buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until just combined.
  2. Heat a griddle to medium high heat and lightly coat with butter. Pour batter onto hot griddle, approximately ¼ cup per pancake. Cook about 2-3 minutes, until small bubbles appear on surface and bottom is golden brown. Flip and cook other side about 2 minutes.
