The molds have a hole in the center that leaves a perfect opening for filling with your favorite fruit or compote.
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
- 2 Tbs. sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 to 2 Tbs. vegetable oil or nonstick cooking spray
- Maple syrup for serving
Heat a griddle over medium-high heat until a few drops of water flicked onto the surface skitter across it. Lightly grease the griddle and the inside surface of the pancake molds with vegetable oil, or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set the molds on the griddle and heat until hot.
Pour batter into each mold. Cook until bubbles form on top and the batter is set, about 2 minutes. Remove the molds and, using a spatula, flip the pancakes. Cook until golden brown on the other side, about 2 minutes more. Keep warm until all the pancakes are cooked.
Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the griddle as needed. Serve with maple syrup.
