Whisk together wet ingredients – Milk, melted butter, eggs and vanilla extract. I usually do this in a large glass measuring cup.
Whisk together dry ingredients – In a medium mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and give it a few whisks just to lightly combine. The batter should be lumpy!
Preheat the griddle over medium-high heat. If using an electric griddle set the temperature to 375°F.
Cook the pancakes – Add a good amount of butter to the griddle and push it around where the pancake batter will be. Add 1/3 cup dollops of batter onto the griddle. Add what you can, giving the batter space to spread and cook.
Cook 2 – 3 min on one side until bubbles form. Then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Do not flip the pancakes again.
Once the pancakes are cooked, remove them from the griddle and onto a plate. Continue making more pancakes until the batter is gone.
Enjoy – Serve these fluffy pancakes warm with butter and syrup!
