These pancakes more than live up to their name. They turn out light, fluffy, crisp and positively perfect every time.
Into a bowl, mix dry ingredients. Into another bowl, whisk milk, egg and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to the milk mixture, folding carefully. Add butter but do not over mix.2.
To cook, heat a large, nonstick pan or flat top griddle over medium-heat and brush with butter. Ladle the batter on top of the pan letting the batter spread out naturally into a circle. Cook the pancake 2 to 3 minutes, or until you see bubbles form and it's golden brown on the bottom.3.
Carefully flip over pancake using a wide spatula. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until the other side is golden as well. Serve with room temperature butter and warm maple syrup.
