    • 1

      Put a nonstick or cast-iron frying pan on the stove over medium heat.

    • 2

      In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and granulated sugar together.

    • 3

      In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the milk. Add the vanilla extract and the melted butter, then whisk some more.

    • 4

      Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in thirds, and whisk. Make sure to get all the lumps out of the batter.

    • 5

      When you are done whisking the batter, crumble 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar on top and then stir them in.

    • 6

      Take some unmelted butter and heat it in the pan so it melts and bubbles.

    • 7

      Then cook in batches: Pour the batter onto the pan (not all of it, just a ladleful at a time—we like a 2-or 3-ounce ladle) so you form good round circles. Flip the pancakes when bubbles form on the top, and cook them till they are ready.

    • 8

      Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of brown sugar over the top and serve hot, with maple syrup and butter.
