I had the best brunch ever today. Pancakes, eggs, coffee/tea, and fresh-squeezed orange juice!
Mmmmm! It was delicious.
In case you're in need of the best pancake recipe there is, I'm willing to share :) This recipe from Smitten Kitchen, so I can't really take credit... but I must say, they are the most eggy and delicious flap jacks you will find out there! Not overly filling or fluffy. So good.
I recommend doubling the recipe - it's supposed to make 8-12 pancakes, but it barely makes 8 when we do one batch.
Edna Mae's Sour Cream Pancakes
- 7 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/ 2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sour cream (yogurt works perfectly, too!)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Maple syrup
Stir the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt together in the bottom of a medium bowl. Dump the sour cream in on top and stir it together very gently; it’s okay to leave the texture a bit uneven. Whisk the eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl and stir them into the sour cream mixture, once again, being careful not to overmix.
Melt about a tablespoon of butter in your skillet or griddle and pour the batter in, a scant 1/4 cup at a time. Cook for about 2 minutes on the first side, or until bubbles appear all over the surface, flipping them carefully and cooking for about a minute on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve in a stack, topped with a pat of butter and a cascade of maple syrup.
Happy weekend brunching, readers!
