Sour Cream Pancakes

Have you ever eaten a pancake made with sour cream? There’s a little breakfast/lunch spot in Salt Lake called Penny Ann’s Cafe, and they serve the most delicious Sour Cream Pancakes! Sometimes, I daydream about those pancakes.

Sour Cream Pancakes

They’re that good.

Saturday morning, I was thinking about those light, slightly tangy, melt in your mouth cakes. I was getting ready to watch General Conference on TV, and didn’t have time to run in to SLC and wait in line for pancakes, so instead, I dug up a recipe I’ve had for years. A few minutes later, we were flipping cakes and smothering them with butter, syrup and fresh strawberries.
I know you’re going to love these too.
Happy cooking!

  • Using a 1/3 cup measure, scoop out batter and spread a bit with the edge of the cup. The pancake should be approximately 4-5 inches across.
