Sour Cream Pancakes 

September 18, 2016

I have taken a LONG hiatus from new recipes and blogging. Many have asked me for new posts so will try to supply you with a few new recipes in the weeks to come.

Tonight we had breakfast for dinner, mainly because I wanted to make these pancakes. I first made them for our 2015 Christmas morning breakfast and everyone enjoyed them and I sort of forgot about them until now. I will say it makes me a little sad to do a blog post about pancakes, because pancakes were always my Dad’s territory. He made the best pancakes ever, but if you didn’t grow up eating them  you probably wouldn’t like them as they were flat, crispy edges with an over the top sweet brown sugar syrup. I can get close, but mine will never be as good as Dads.

This recipe from the Pioneer Woman is a nice alternative for an easy homemade pancake. It also uses my favorite condiment, sour cream, so that already makes these pancakes delicious in my book.

Sour Cream Pancakes (from the Pioneer Woman)


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 7 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a small bowl whisk together eggs and vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Stir in the sour cream until just barely combined, trying not to overmix.
  • Whisk in egg mixture until just combined. It’s ok if the batter is lumpy.
  • Heat a griddle over medium-low heat and use melted butter or cooking spray to prevent sticking. Use about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake, flipping once bubbles appear on surface. Cook on the other side for another minute or two.
  • Serve with your favorite pancake toppings and enjoy!

Here’s my favorite pancake maker at work – love and miss you Dad!
