Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter.
Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just incorporated.
Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium-high heat and lightly coat with butter or nonstick spray. Once the pan is very hot, ladle the batter into the heated pan and cook until the top bubbles and the bottom is browned.
Flip and cook until the other side is nicely browned. Serve as you like them. We like ours with powdered sugar, homemade jam and some sprinkled cinnamon.
