  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 4 Tbsp butter melted plus additional for pan
  • 2 large eggs separated
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup and butter for serving


  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Sift using a whisk.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, egg yolks and vanilla.
  • Add the wet to the dry stirring just until combined.The mixture will be lumpy. Set aside.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks have formed. Fold into the batter.
  • Butter a cast iron skillet or griddle and heat to medium-high. Divide the pancake batter using a ¼ cup measuring cup. (May use cooking spray in place of butter, if desired)
  • Cook until golden and the batter has bubbled on top for around 2 minutes per side, then flip.
  • Cook in batches adding more butter to the pan as needed. Keep warm until serving.
  • Serve drizzled with maple syrup and butter.
