1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, melted and cooled
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Bourbon-Pear Sauce


Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine the flour and the next 4 ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl. Combine the buttermilk, butter, and egg, and add to the flour mixture, stirring with a whisk until smooth.

Spoon about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot nonstick griddle or nonstick skillet. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Serve with Bourbon-Pear Sauce.
