*1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
*3 teaspoons baking powder
*1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/4 cup butter, melted
*1/2 cup milk, room temperature
*3 cups buttermilk, room temperature
*3 eggs, room temperature
*2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

~In a separate bowl, beat together butter, milk, buttermilk, eggs & vanilla.
~Mix the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, using a whisk or fork.
~Stir just until it's blended together, breaking up the big lumps.
Smaller lumps will disappear while it cooks.
~Oil a griddle and lightly oil.
~Cook pancakes over medium heat.
~Brown on both sides, serve hot
`Add 1 cup of your favorite fruit

Helpful Hint: You can flick water across the surface of the hot griddle, if the water dances (or beads up), it's ready to cook on.
If you like thinner pancakes, then you will want to beat until all lumps are gone and may want to add 1/2 cup milk.
