Sour Cream Pancakes

So, for the past few months I've been really watching the blog of The Pioneer Woman. That woman's blog is pure food porn. I could just gaze for hours at her amazing food pictures (and pictures of her life on a ranch). Turns out she's a HUGE deal and everyone except for me has known about her for sometime, but better late than never, right? Anyway, I spend a lot of time on her blog.

So, on one of my many reading/drooling/gazing sessions, I came across a recipe for Pancakes. This made me excited for many reasons, one being my hubby has a weird obession with pancakes (we're talking Pancakes for dinner, people) and also, I hate buying the boxed stuff (tastes like powder, yech). I was pretty pumped to try them.

Since we're on a very tight budget, it took about 2-3 weeks before I was willing to spend $4 or whatever redonk price sour cream is. Once I did though, these were the first thing I made.

I will NEVER go back to the boxed kind. EVER. These are so light & fluffy, smell amazing and are just YUM!

Edna Mae's Sour Cream Pancakes

2 Eggs
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
7 tbsp of flour (yes, that's it!)
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup Sour Cream
Butter for your frying pan & serving
WARM syrup (how cute is that!)

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

In a large bowl, combine the flour (only 7tbsp, amazing!) sugar, baking soda and salt. Next, add the sour cream and mix (just barely combine, it won't feel mixed enough, but trust me, it is!)

Whisk in the egg & vanilla mixture until JUST combined.

Heat a griddle (such a great word, just sounds yummy) to medium low and melt some butter. Using a 1/4 cup, pour batter onto the griddle. Now here is the magic - wait until the top is all bubbly and the edges are brown and then flip.

Cook them on the second side for about 1 minute. They are quite soft, so make sure you don't overcook them!

My griddle (ok, electric frying pan) is quite small so I can only make 4 at a time, so while the second batch is being made, I put the first batch into the oven at the VERY lowest temp possible. This keeps them warm, but doesn't try them out (a trick I learned from my Grandma!) 

Next, serve them with butter and warm syrup (seriously, this makes a difference) and enjoy!!!!!!!

Also, do yourself a favour and go check out The Pioneer Woman's blog. Her pictures are amazing!
