In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk together sugar, egg, milk, sour cream, melted butter, orange zest and vanilla. Pour over flour mixture and whisk gently to combine.

In a large nonstick skillet or griddle, over medium heat, pour about ¼ cup (50 mL) batter per pancake. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, turning once or until golden. Repeat with remaining butter and batter; adjusting heat as necessary to prevent burning.
