Step 1

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl and whisk or stir with a fork.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, whisk together the beaten eggs, buttermilk (or sour milk), and the melted butter.

Step 3

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and very gently fold them together. Do not overmix; the batter should have small to medium lumps.

Step 4

For each pancake, pour about 1/2 cup of batter. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip them over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.
