Sour Cream Pancakes for National Pancake Day!!

pancakes & spices 013

 Tuesday, Feb. 5th is National Pancake Day!

 So in honor of the occasion, I made a new recipe... "Sour Cream Pancakes"

Yesterday, Pat from the blog, On Crooked Creek, posted her version of The Pioneer Woman's recipe, from her book, The Pioneer Woman Cooks
Recipes From An Accidental Country Girl 
by Ree Drummond.  

Pat said she used 1/2 the recipe for just the two of them, so I thought that would be perfect for us, also.

They were SOOOOOOO good, next time, I'm making the full recipe & putting one or two pancakes into the freezer for hubby to reheat for himself on those days that I play tennis & he has to fend for himself.

Here is the full size recipe:

Edna Mae's Sour Cream Pancakes:


1 Cup Sour Cream
7 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2  Eggs
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Flavoring
Maple Syrup


Place your pan over medium-high heat. 

I used a non-stick skillet & thus eliminated the butter in the original recipe.
Put the sour cream in a medium sized bowl.  Add your flour, sugar, baking soda & salt. Mix gently.

Whisk the eggs separately, add vanilla, then stir into flour/sugar mixture.

Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake & allow to cook undisturbed until you see bubbles form all over the top.  Gently flip & DON'T press down on the top!!

Since hubby is diabetic, we topped them with the BEST SUGAR FREE SYRUP ..our favorite!

Looks like I'd better put that down on my grocery list!

 Thank you, Pat, for sharing this delicious recipe. 

I'm linking to Michael Lee's Foodie Friday

  4. Tomorrow's breakfast, guaranteed! Rett, my Ern has the same issue and since we have never found a decent sugar free syrup he just does without. I have never seen the Smucker's version and will be on the lookout for it. Thanks so much. He would love this treat.

    1. Bunny, I've found it on the top shelf in the cereal isle, of all places! Ask your store manager to order it for you...it really IS the very best. I put it over my oatmeal, after it is cooked, some mornings

    2. Oh & make the FULL recipe! You won't be sorry, honest.

  5. They sure sound like great pancakes! I just noticed the "picture quilt" Carol made of you in your about me-LOVE IT:@)

    1. Thanks, Lynn..it was one of the nicest gifts anyone has ever given me! I entered it under Carol's name, in a local quilt show & it got a 2nd place ribbon in its size category. Personally, I felt it should have won 1st place! LOL
      It now hangs in my sewing room where I can enjoy it every day.

  6. Darn, I missed National Pancake Day but thankfully I didn't miss your post - these sound wonderful! Copying and pasting this recipe!

  8. The recipe sounds delicious, Rett! I like to use sugar free syrup because I watch my carbs. What a yummy breakfast treat!!

  9. They look good, Rett! Are those turkey sausage patties? I just bought them to try. I don't mind them, but dh wasn't thrilled! :)
    Bracing for a blizzard! Not much we can do about it!
    Hope all is well there!

  10. Kathleen, I will be thinking about you & all our other blogging buddies who live in the North East area. I hope & pray that the storm passes by quickly & doesn't bring nearly the amounts that they are predicting. Be sure to post on your blog & let us know how you fared? We worry, ya' know!

  12. I had to come back and comment on your previous post. The Valentine Cozy is charming and exudes LOVE for your sweet man. What a thoughtful wife you are. You just make me want to 'hug your neck'! (A dear friend always says that when she is touched and wants to hug someone.
