In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and sugar. Stir in milk, melted butter, egg and vanilla extract. Mix to ensure ingredients are well combined.
Heat your nonstick skillet to medium heat. Scoop about 1 & 1/2 tablespoons of pancake batter into the pan. Repeat with as many as you can fit in your pan. Let cook until top begins to lightly bubble and edges are golden.
Flip pancakes over and let cook another minute or until bottom is golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
To keep your pancakes warm while cooking, place on a plate and cover with a clean towel.
Serve warm pancakes with butter, syrup and your favorite fresh fruit. Enjoy!
Recipe notes: For an even golden top, I don’t oil or butter the skillet prior to cooking the pancakes. If you don’t have a very good nonstick skillet you may want to lightly oil to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
