Method
In a bowl,whisk together the flour,sugar,baking powder,baking soda and salt.
In another bowl,whisk together buttermilk,egg and melted butter to blend thoroughly.
Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix with the whisk,stopping when everything is just combined.(Don't worry if the batter is a bit lumpy).
Preheat the skillet over medium heat,spoon 1/4cup of batter on to the griddle.
When the underside of the pancake are golden and the top is lightly speckled with bubbles that pop and stay open,flip the pancakes and cook until the other side is slight brown.
Serve immediately with butter,syrup,honey or jam or keep the finished pancakes in the 200F preheated oven while you make the rest of the batch.
