Mix plain flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and then mix in the egg, butter, buttermilk, sugar and salt to a smooth batter.
Heat the butter in a large nonstick frying pan over medium high heat, ladling in approximately 60ml of batter for 4 small pancakes. Reduce heat to medium and fry for a couple of minutes until you notice bubbles on the surface and the edges are cooked. Flip pancakes over to cook on the other side for another couple of minutes.
Serve with maple syrup and butter if desired.
