Sour Cream Pancakes

I know - pancakes again - I AM OBSESSED! But give these a try because they are from heaven.

Sour Cream Pancakes
2 T. Butter (melted)
2 t. sugar ( I use turbinado)
1 egg
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 t. salt (I use Real salt)
1/2 c. cold water
3/4 cup flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder

Here is the very crucial order in which to do things:
Melted butter first, then sugar, then egg (now whisk very well- yes the egg will solidify some of the butter because it is cold, but that is a good thing- just mix well).
Next sour cream, salt, then water. Now sift together and put into the bowl the flour, soda and baking powder. BY THE SINK with cold water running stir (do not whisk) them together adding a small amount of water if you think you will need it. The batter should be lumpy and stirred just until combined. (Look at the photo of the pancake on the griddle - it almost looks like a biscuit the batter is so thick.)


  1. These are absolutely wonderful. I had a case of plain greek yogurt that I have been trying to use up since my kids aren't eating it fast enough. I remembered reading this blog post and decided to substitute the creamy greek yogurt instead of sour cream. They were heavenly! Divine! Thank you so much! I'll be trying them again when I have sour cream. :0)

  2. I am making these divine pancakes again. I think I could die eating them! I am preferring them with Greek yogurt substituted for sour cream. Thank you soooo much for this (my favorite pancake) recipe. I will be making them for my older children who will be home for Christmas. Yay!!
