This recipe uses buttermilk which creates a lightness to the pancakes.
Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and sugar. Make a well in the centre. Stir in the buttermilk, eggs and vanilla until just combined.
Lightly grease a non-stick pan with a bit of butter or oil. Pour in the batter and cook over medium heat. Turn pancake over when bubbles appear on the top side of the pancake. Cook for another minute or so, until the pancake is lightly golden on both sides. Repeat with remaining batter.
Take care not to over beat the batter as the pancakes will become tough.
