Sour Cream Pancakes Recipe

Prep time: Around 10 minutes  Cook Time:  Around 10-15 minutes

This recipe for sour cream pancakes came from my sister, but I took it and modified it a little to suit my needs.  They are great pancake that everyone has seemed to enjoy.  I suppose if you are a fan of buttermilk pancakes, this recipe will be right up your alley.  Super simple to make, and if there are any leftovers, the toast up well the next day, or make a double batch to ensure that there will be leftovers.  Here are the constituents that you will need:

2 cups all purpose flour
2 heaping tsp of baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp sugar
couple of pinches of salt

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
1 2/3 cups of milk
A generous splash of vanilla

In a large bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients together.  In another bowl, whisk the eggs then add the rest of the wet ingredients to that bowl.  Finally, pour the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and whisk together.  Cook in a frying pan with some oil or butter over medium heat, flipping when there are bubbles forming on the uncooked side.


-I like to have mine with some butter and real maple syrup (I say real, because the fake stuff just, well, tastes fake to me.  Call me a snob, call me what you will, but that is what I think)

-Sylvia likes to have hers with just butter

-Add some chocolate chips into the batter for extra sweet

-Add some raspberries or bananas or shredded apples or whatever fruit you like to the batter, or on top

-Spread some Nutella on them

That's all for now,

  16. Stopping by from Made by You Monday. Those look so light and fluffy!

  17. Will try this,been really looking for ways to use my sour cream (bought the big size from the warehouse) then i came upon to see your blog,that's a blessing,thanks!

  18. Found you on Skip to My Lou. This recipe sounds (and looks) delicious! Can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing.


  19. Well I tried the pancakes and they were delicious. Husband ate till he almost popped. Dogs ate too and I have batter left over. LOL I made the following changes:

    Used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 all purpose flour
    Used buttermilk instead of regular milk
    Added 1 mashed banana

    Next time I may try to make them will all whole wheat flour. I was afraid they might be too heavy with all whole wheat. They are a hit and will be eaten again and again in this house. Thanks so much for such a delicious recipe.

  20. I would like to do all of the above. Add chocolate chips to the batter, nutella to the top , and raspberries all over!! :)

    This would be perfect for my Foodie Friday linky party - stop by this week and link up!

  21. I love pancakes, but rarely make them, so they are a treat to me. Those look very yummy! I always have sour cream in my fridge, so I may have to adapt the sour cream into the gluten free pancakes I make. Thanks for the idea!

  22. I made these for my kiddos, and they were a hit! Sharing them with my readers on my Facebook page today. Thanks for the great idea!

  23. You had me at sour cream (the sneaky ingredient that makes everything tast better). Thanks for posting this recipe! I love from-scratch pancakes.

  24. these are amazing! I'll have to try this recipe. I definitely should not be looking at food when I'm so hungry already .


  25. YUM! Thanks for the great recipe. Can't wait to try it. I am your newest follower and would love for you to come check out my blog and follow along too!
