  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter , melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter , divided (for greasing pan)


  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, ¼ cup melted butter and vanilla bean paste/extract until smooth.
  • Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as a few flour streaks are OK!
  • In a large skillet or griddle, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Pour batter by ½ cupful into skillet and cook until edges are set and bubbles form in the center of pancakes, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned, about 1 minutes. Repeat process with rest of butter and pancakes.
  • Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup.


Buttermilk pancakes are best eaten right away, though you can refrigerate for up to 2 days.
