Just when I thought that I had found the perfect pancake, I found this recipe in the July/Aug 2009 Cook’s Illustrated. I think that you will agree.   The added dimension of  sour cream makes them so good!!



          2 cups flour

          2 tbsp sugar

          ½ tsp salt

          1 tsp baking powder

          ½ tsp baking soda


Mix together:

          2 cups buttermilk

          ¼ cup sour cream

          2 large eggs

          3 tbsp butter, melted and cooled



Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in wet ingredients, until just combined.  Do not over mix.  Allow batter to sit for 10 minutes before cooking.


Heat a fry pan over med heat till shimmering.  (350 deg.)  Using ¼ cup of batter into pan and cook until edges are set and bubbles come to the surface about 2-3 min.  Continue to cook other side 1-2 min longer.  Serve immediately or place in preheated oven.
