Sour Cream Pancakes

We've had quite the weather this past week! We got snow on Tuesday and Wednesday, leaving us stuck at home on Wednesday and Thursday! That's the first we've had snow days since we moved to South Carolina, since we are in South Carolina after all! We headed back to work on Friday, but Wednesday and Thursday were a wonderful treat. We got a few things done, but we mostly watched the snow come down, talked, read, stayed cozy, and ate these pancakes. It's not your typical buttermilk pancake recipe, as there's no milk and hardly any flour. But they were a delicious treat for something different, and a perfect breakfast on a snow day. We had an earthquake on Friday, and yesterday it was a balmy 60+ degrees. Whatever Mother Nature is sending your way, I hope you have a great Monday :)

Sour Cream Pancakes
1 cup sour cream
7 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla. Set aside.

In a separate small bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.

In a medium bowl, stir together the sour cream with the dry ingredients until just barely combined (don't over-mix). Whisk in the egg mixture until just combined.

Heat a griddle over medium-low heat and melt some butter in the pan. Drop batter by1/4 cup servings onto the griddle. Cook on the first side until bubbles start to form on the surface and edges are starting to brown. Flip to the other side and cook for another minute. (Pancakes will be a little on the soft side.)

Serve with butter and syrup.

  4. This looks really different, but worth a try! We go through so much milk that it would be nice to have a breakfast recipe that didn't take any :) I'm going to try this soon! Pinning for later

  5. I have always wanted to try sour creme pancakes! BTW South Carolina is MORE than welcome to take a lot more of our snow here in our Chicago!
