I have to say, I was a little hesitant to try these considering the recipe calls for sour cream. And...
I was right. These pancakes tasted fine. They were very different from the pancakes I usually make. Much lighter and more souffle like. I had a hard time flipping them (most likely my kitchen utensils) and didn't like them when the first came off the griddle. After a few rounds I added some more flour to the batter, and that seemed to firm them up enough to fit my pancake batter flipping skills. :)
My kids loved them, and ate them all up. I passed. My husband's response was that they were fine.
SO, I think I'll stick to our family recipe:
- 1 ¼ cup flour
- 2 ½ tsp baking powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- ¾ tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 ¼ cups milk
- 3 Tablespoons melted butter
