Serve warm with Butter with Canola Oil.

Pecan Pancakes: Gently stir in 1/3 cup chopped pecans.

The sour cream makes them really moist and even. It was so rich and delicious it felt more like a dessert than breakfast. They browned really well. I will not make pancakes any other way again!
Disappointing. They were dry and tasteless. Would add more butter and sugar. Could not taste the tangy sour cream either.
Delicious, so light they melt in your mouth
I have made these for years and they are the best pancakes ever! The only thing I would add is that Making the batter the night before makes a difference, makes the batter tighten up and puff!
A good 4 stars... couldn't give it 5 b/c I found that milk was way too much. Made a very thin batter like crepes and not pancakes. But added about 1/3 cup of flour and it was perfect. Also, made these gluten free by using the multi-grain LoL flour blend. I also added extra vanilla and a bit of almond extract. Finally, I did use lite sour cream as that's what I had in the fridge.
I think these were perfect, classic, light as foam! Sometimes the simplest is the best.
This is my "go-to" recipe for pancakes. I have cooked these for years for Sturgis Rally guests that stay with us each year. They always get rave reviews. These pancakes are so tender and delicate and I love the flavor! I use regular sour cream but I would think they would still be great with lite sour cream. We absolutely love this recipe!
Nothing special. Very moist though. Mu husband loved them. I could care less but since hubby liked them I'm sure I'll make them again.

I’m not ashamed to admit that winter is my least favorite season. One frustration is shoveling out my car only to have it not start anyway. In winter there is also the constant back and forth of freezing when outside, but sweating when inside. Then there are the foggy glasses. I could go on.…
