• 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour • 3 tablespoons sugar • 1 teaspoon baking powder • 1 teaspoon baking soda • 1 teaspoon kosher salt • 2 large eggs • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted • vegetable oil, for the griddle • pure maple syrup, optional, to taste (for serving)


Step 1

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

Step 2

Whisk the eggs, buttermilk, and butter in a medium bowl.

Step 3

Stir the wet ingredients mixture into the dry ingredients mixture until just combined with some lumps remaining.

Step 4

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 10 minutes. This helps the gluten in the batter relax and produces fluffier pancakes.

Step 5

Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat.

Step 6

Brush the griddle with vegetable oil.

Step 7

In batches, scoop 1/3 cup of the batter onto the griddle.

Step 8

Cook the pancakes until the bottoms are golden brown and the tops begin to bubble at the edges, about 3 minutes.

Step 9

Flip the pancakes and cook until cooked through and the other side is golden brown, about 2 minutes.

Step 10

Stack the pancakes to keep them warm and serve with maple syrup
