  • 4 cups all-purpose flour sifted
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 egg
  • 2 cup buttermilk warm
  • 2 cup whole milk warm
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, salt,baking soda and sugar. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl beat eggs until fluffy and uniform in color.
  • Whisk in buttermilk and whole milk.
  • Stir in melted butter and vanilla extract.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the well.
  • Gently add the dry ingredients into the well and stir until flour is incorporated. (Be very careful here and do not over stir. Batter should be lumpy.)
  • Heat a nonstick griddle to 350 F. (This is the standard tempt. but griddles seem to heat differently. I have to heat mine to 300 F. It may be best to do a test pancake first to test out what is the best temp for your griddle)
  • Place ⅓ cup worth of pancake batter onto the hot griddle. (I spread the batter out a little as I'm pouring it on since the batter is thick if it has sat for a while.)
  • Cook pancakes until bubbles break on the surface and then flip them over and cook the other side until golden. (see note)
  • Spread melted butter on top of each pancake and place in a stack.
  • Serve hot with syrup and whipped butter.


If your pancakes are pale on the underside yet bubbles are breaking on the surface then your heat is too low.
If your pancakes are golden or brown on the underside before bubbles begin to break on the surface then your heat is too high.
