  3. ½ teaspoon salt
  4. ½ teaspoon baking powder
  5. ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  6. ¾ cup buttermilk

  8. 1 large egg (room temperature)
  9. 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Heat large skillet over medium heat (about 350 degrees F.).

  4. Whisk in egg, butter, and vanilla.
  5. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients, and whisk just until mixed.

  8. Pour batter on griddle, and cook 2-3 minutes per side.
  9. Serve immediately
