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.
