Buttermilk Pancakes

2 cups flour

Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a large bowl.  Add eggs, buttermilk and melted butter; whisk to combine.  Batter should have small to medium sized lumps.  Do not over mix.
Heat griddle to 375 degrees and grease with 1 T. butter.  Pour about 1/3 cup batter into pools 2 inches away from another.  When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, flip over.  Cook until golden on bottom.
