With a bubbly secret ingredient, these buttermilk pancakes will be a family favorite!
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1¼ teaspoons baking powder
1¼ teaspoons baking soda
1¼ teaspoons kosher salt
2 large eggs
1¾ cups buttermilk
½ cup cold seltzer water or club soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more
Pure maple syrup (for serving)
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Using a fork, beat eggs, buttermilk, seltzer, vanilla, and 3 Tbsp. melted butter in a medium bowl to incorporate eggs. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and whisk to combine (batter will be slightly lumpy).
Heat a large griddle or 2 cast-iron or nonstick skillets over medium heat, brush with butter. Working in batches, scoop ½-cupfuls of batter onto griddle; cook until bubbles form on the surface and pop and the underside is golden brown, 2½–3 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until golden brown on the bottom, 2–2½ minutes more. Transfer pancakes to plates or a platter and brush tops with butter. Serve with maple syrup alongside.
To feed a larger group, double the recipe and keep pancakes warm in a 250°F oven between batches. If you don't have a griddle or 2 skillets, use 1 skillet to cook the pancakes.
