the heavenly pancake award

goes to these pancakes. i think i make a pretty kick ass buttermilk pancake as it is, but these – these were beyond wonderful and easier than my own kick ass buttermilk pancakes. and there was enough batter to make four largeish pancakes which means no leftovers to ignore or forget about. pancake perfection, let me tell you. this recipe appeared on both Pioneer Woman and Smitten Kitchen and since they for sure know what they’re doing in the kitchen (have you read the Pioneer Woman’s cookbook yet? if not, why not? what’s wrong with you? go get it!) i had to try these creamy, fluffy pancakes.

PW’s Sour Cream Pancakes

You Need:

7 tablespoons flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. heat a griddle while you’re doing this, by the way. stir in the cup of sour cream into the dry ingredients. you don’t have to beat the mess out of it or even incorporate everything perfectly. just give it a quick mix together. stir in the eggs and vanilla and mix together. again, don’t worry about making a smooth, even, uniform mixture. just get it altogether. spray your griddle or melt some butter (however you like to cook pancakes). spoon out your batter and cook them until both sides are brown. like i said, i got four large pancakes out of this batter, but i think you can probably squeeze out more if you make them smaller. but why would i want tiny pancakes? i don’t. serve with butter and syrup!  Erik couldn’t find anything about these to be all “meh” about, if that gives you any indication of the legitimacy of their goodness. ooh awkward sentence award goes to me for that one … sheesh…
