  1. Heat a large non-stick skillet or griddle over low heat while preparing ingredients. Mix flour, sugar, salt (if using salted butter reduce salt to 1/4 tsp.), baking powder and baking soda in medium bowl.
  2. Microwave buttermilk and milk in a 2-cup Pyrex mesuring cup to room temperature, 20-30 seconds. Whisk in egg, butter and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and whisk until just mixed.
  3. Return batter to measuring cup, stirring in a a tespoon or so of water, if necessary, to make a thick but pourable batter.
  4. Increase heat to medium and generously brush skillet or griddle with oil. When oil starts to spider, but before it starts to smoke, pour batter, about 1/4 cup at a time (for 4-inch pancakes). Work in batches, if necessary, to avoid overcrowding (I keep cooked cakes in oven, uncovered, on a oven-safe plate, at 200 degrees). When pancake bottoms are golden brown and tops start to bubble, 2-3 minutes, flip pancakes; cook until golden brown on remaining side. Repeat, brushing skillet or griddle with oil. Serve hot.
