Recipe #50: Sour Cream Pancakes

Here we are at recipe #50, the halfway point in this journey of 100 recipes. Considering my love of all things breakfast it seems appropriate that my halfway point recipe would be pancakes. This was a very easy recipe and the pancakes are a lot like buttermilk pancakes if that kind of thing floats your boat. I found the recipe at Helpful Daddy and immediately thought that this guy’s wife was super lucky – if I get married one day I sure hope it’s to someone who likes to cook breakfast.



  • 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

Preparation Instructions

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.

These were amazing pancakes. Hands down my new favorite recipe for fluffy pancakes. They were thick, but fluffy, and the inside was just the right amount of sweetness. I made these over Easter break for my dad and brother Shane. Shane doesn’t normally even like pancakes that much (how are we related!?) said they tasted good!

Will I make these again? A new favorite!

    I make Edna Mae’s pancakes (from PW’s book) and they are to die for. She doesn’t use milk, but I can’t go on and on about fluffiness either. But, they are worth a shot, too if you are game!
