Sour Cream Pancakes

These are the pancakes from my childhood.  When I eat these I'm in my Lanz nightgown, sitting in front of the t.v. watching Saturday morning cartoons with my brother.  Funny how food can transport you back in time.  They are soft, tender and just delicious.  I love them plain but of course, the kids really love them with some mini-chocolate chips added in. 



1 cup Sour Cream
7 Tablespoons All-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 whole Large Eggs
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Butter, For Frying And Serving

In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla. Set aside.  In a separate small bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl, stir together the sour cream with the dry ingredients until just barely combined.  Whisk in the egg mixture until just combined.  Heat a griddle over medium-low heat and melt some butter in the pan. Drop batter by 1/4 cup servings onto the griddle. 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.

Recipe from Pioneer Woman, of course!
