Fluffy Sour Cream Pancakes
Lets get started!
Hello! I am so excited to share this delicious recipe with you. It is one of my go-to recipes for breakfast and sometimes dinner. I completely embrace anything that is sweet and so pancakes are the perfect breakfast treat in my book. The nice thing about these pancakes is that you usually keep all of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge. They are easy to make and I know that you will love them.
~ Dry ~
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of white sugar
3 tablespoons of melted butter
1/4 cup of sour cream
1 1/4 cups of milk
I always get a really big bowl to start off with because all of these ingredients get added into the same bowl. I put my flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in the bowl first and then I add all of the milk. I always want to start to whisk once I put the milk in but just refrain and add my egg. Once my egg is added I pour the melted butter in and begin to whisk. Do no panic if your batter has a few small lumps that is completely fine because it does not need to be smooth like cake batter. Once you have whisked all the ingredients in add in the sour cream. I usually take half of the 1/4 cup and add it in, whisk, and then add the rest of the 1/4 cup. During this time I have my griddle heating up to 400 degrees so that after my batter making is complete there is hardly any wait time for tasting these scrumptious pancakes. I always put a little butter on my griddle so that each pancake can have a golden buttery edge. I scoop my batter out using a gravy ladle and one scoop makes a good sized pancake. If you or someone in your family enjoys really large pancakes I would use two scoops. Once the pancakes have tiny bubbles all over it is the perfect time to flip. The first side that you flip will be a pretty golden color and that color will be a good indicator for when the last side is done. After both sides are a perfect golden brown it is then time to plate them up and eat...while they are hot and the butter is soft and half melted with syrup on top. I promise you these will not disappoint and will have everyone asking when you're going to make them next.
If you are in the mood for something even more decadent than the recipe listed above, there is always vanilla. You will do no wrong adding in vanilla. In the past I have added about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla to my batter. You can also add in a dash of cinnamon. I really like adding cinnamon in during the holidays. You can always add butter and syrup before you eat but there are sometimes that I add a thin layer of peanut butter or fresh fruit to may pancakes and then top with syrup.
If you do not have a griddle like the one I used, a pan on the stove works great too. Just heat the stove on the pan to medium-high heat. I have used both but I prefer the griddle because I can make more pancakes at one time.
