    1. Whisk the egg, buttermilk and oil in a large bowl.

    3. Heat a large pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with butter or oil.
    4. Pour about 1 tablespoon of the pancake mixture onto the griddle, making as many pancakes as will fit and cook for 2 minutes.
    5. Flip the pancakes and cook for one minute longer and serve.

    **If you do not have buttermilk you can make it by adding 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. This mix also works beautifully with any type of milk you prefer!
