In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Pour in eggs and buttermilk and mix until the batter is mostly smooth.
Heat a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Pour in enough oil to just barely cover the bottom of the pan. Let the oil heat up. You may have to adjust and readjust the temperature of your heat source as you cook so make sure those beautiful pancakes stay golden brown.
Working in small batches of 3 to 4, ladle in about 1 tablespoon of batter at a time into the hot skillet. Fry until golden brown, flip, and fry the other side until it is also golden brown.
Transfer the fried pancakes to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve hot with jam, sour cream, or fresh berries.
