Pancakes, Pancakes!

My post today is dedicated to those fluffy, round, scrumptious things we call pancakes. Growing up my Dad and I would make pancakes together every Saturday morning. We would add our "secret" ingredient that we promised not to tell anyone about.ever. Although there are some pretty amazing looking pancakes out there nowadays none will compare with my Daddy's pancakes. Here are a few that look like they might come close though...

Birthday pancakes...do I really have to wait until my birthday? Emily you should make them this weekend...or maybe I can make them in honor of your birthday?

And there are even pancakes made with sour cream by none other than my favorite Pioneer Woman...Edna Mae's Sour Cream Pancakes
I actually made these this past weekend and I was pleasantly surprised with how light and fluffy they were compared to the average pancake...if there is an average pancake. Since I'm talking about pancakes it is only fair I share this recipe with you...
Step 1. Gather up your cast of characters-
 1 Cup sour cream
7 T. flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
butter (for griddle)
Syrup
Step 2. Place sour cream in a medium bowl. Add flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.
Step 3. Stir very, very gently...it should be lumpy for texture. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl and stir in vanilla...add this to sour cream/flour mixture and stir gently.
Step 4. Add butter to a hot skillet and pour batter in 1/4 cup at a time. Cook for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes then flip. Repeat until batter is gone.

Let's face it, not only are pancakes amazingly delicious, but they bring people together. What is your favorite kind of pancake?

Bacon pancakes? That's insane. My fav are chocolate chip made with the mini choc chips. I eat them for dinner a lot! I've also made PW's sour cream pancakes before too!
