Buttermilk Pancakes

These are so good served with lots of butter and warm thick syrup OR strawberries and fresh whipped cream!  Also, whatever we don't eat I like to freeze and then heat up whenever we want.

1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 Tbl melted butter
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt
Stir in buttermilk, butter, and egg into flour mixture just until incorporated
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat
Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle (I like to use an ice cream scoop)
Brown on both sides and serve hot
