I have cooked my way through countless pancake recipes, including ones calling for whole wheat, buttermilk, cornmeal, and so on. Then, one morning, I stumbled upon Smitten Kitchen’s Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes.
Contrary to the name of this recipe, these pancakes are not the slightest bit sour. Instead, the sour cream adds such a nice level of creaminess, that I find myself only partially drenching them in syrup (which is quite something coming from a condiment lover like myself). The texture takes the gold though. It is pillowy, in the most enjoyable way, with a slight chewiness that is reminiscent of a crepe.
So, for the time being, I am lowering the sails, and settling into my weekend mornings with the delicious company of these pancakes.
