1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups fat-free buttermilk
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 large egg, lightly beaten


Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Combine buttermilk, butter, and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.

Pour about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto a hot nonstick griddle or nonstick skillet. Cook 2 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.
