So I had some sour cream languishing in the back of the fridge (starting to think about growing legs and finding someone to eat it) when I remembered hearing about a recipe for sour cream pancakes. Some quick research led to this recipe. A few tweaks and the rest is delicious history.
1 cup sour cream
7 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tspbaking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a medium bowl, stir together the sour cream with the dry ingredients until just combined. Whisk in the egg and vanilla until just combined.
Heat a pan over medium-low heat and melt some butter in the pan. Drop scoops of batter (about 1/4 cup) into the pan. Cook on the first side until bubbles start to form on the surface and edges are starting to brown. Flip to the other side and cook for another minute. (Pancakes will be a little soft.)
Slather butter and drown in maple syrup to enjoy perfection.
(These keep well in the fridge for a few days. Just pop in the toaster to revive.)
Sorry for no pictures! They were so tasty that none stayed around to be photographed fresh.)
