Sour Cream Pancakes

Something about these pancakes feels very southern to me.

I like it.

In the past, I only experimented with pancake mix-ins.  Chocolate, coconut, corn, berries, etc…but lately I’ve been trying out recipes that alter the very base of this magical breakfast item, the pancake, the hotcake, the flapjack.  Pancakes, I love you.

Here is the recipe for these tangy medallions of goodness, from none other than Ree Drummond.  

Start with Wegmans.  I MEAN…sour cream.  

Whisk together your flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.  You’ll probably think, “Wow only seven tablespoons of flour?” Remember that the base of this particular batter is the sour cream.  Don’t worry, everything will be okay.

Try not to eat all of your sour cream before you get it into the bowl.  

It will look really gross and goopy at first.  We still have a little more liquid coming!

Add your eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined.

You’ll end up with a luxurious looking batter.  Go ahead, taste it.

Then just cook them the way you would any other pancake, a griddle and a decent amount of butter.  Sour cream pancakes will be a little more tender than your typical pancake.  I can’t wait to add fruit to these!
