Whisk milk, egg and vanilla together in a jug. Sift flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl.

Stir in sugar.

Make a well in center. Add milk mixture.

Whisk until just combined.

After you pancake mixture is ready,
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat.  Then brush pan with butter. Using 1/4 cup mixture per pancake, cook 2 pancakes for approx 3 to 4 minutes or until bubbles appear on surface.
Toss them on the other side and cook for another 3 minutes or until they are completely cooked.

After they are fully cooked transfer in a plate.
Cover loosely with foil to keep warm,and it will also keep pancakes soft.

Follow the same steps with the rest of the mixture, brushing pan with butter between batches.

-Use same big spoon for pouring mixture into the pan, for relatively same size of pancakes.
