Put the eggs, milk and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk to blend until smooth; reserve. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Stir with a whisk to blend. Add the egg/milk mixture and stir until just blended. Stir in the melted, cooled butter. Do not over-mix, or pancakes will be thin and tough - batter should be a bit lumpy. Using a 1/4-cup measure, drop batter onto preheated griddle (if you like extra-buttery pancakes, put about 1/2 tablespoon of butter on each plate and melt before dropping batter on plates). Cook pancakes until bubbles form, about 2 to 3 minutes; flip and cook until done, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer to warm plates to serve. As you finish each batch of pancakes, you can keep them warm on a wire rack placed on a baking sheet in a low oven (200°F). Repeat until all the batter is used.
