  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  • In a large mixing bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Whisk in the brown sugar. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg,oil and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add the wet mixture all at once to the dry ingredients. Stir together just until combined. It's okay if batter is still a little lumpy.
  • Place a large non-stick pan over a medium/high heat.
  • Pour about 1/4 - 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake  (I use a large serving spoon).
  • Cook 2-3 minutes until bubbles start to form on tops.
  • Flip and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
  • Place on a rimmed baking sheet and transfer to oven to keep warm (set oven to 250℉/120℃).
  • Serve with your favourite toppings.
