Plain ol' Pancakes

but they were the best!

I have a great receipe for pancakes with sour cream. The reason I liked to use this was because as a couponer I always had up to 10 tubs of sour cream in my frig, taking up way too much space (tiny frig, 9 people) so I had to find new ways to use it up.

Not having a car, I'm often out of ingredients when I want to cook something, and I've learnt to make do with what I've had instead of bungling up a bunch of kiddies and walking to a store to get one or two things.

All that to say this pancake recipe is a very basic one using the ingredients I nearly always have on hand. If you use bisquick I would liken the mix to that...but better and of course natural. To date I'd rate it the best pancake mix I've's a keeper!


2 cups ub flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
6 t baking powder
2 t salt
2 T sugar
2 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
1/2 stick butter (4 t)


I confess I love to dump all my ingredients and stir...I know I'm a terrible cook, but you probably would too if you had 7 kids under foot acting like they'd never been fed! Just smother with real maple syrup and you'll be back in heaven, at least til breakfast is over!


  1. Yay..such super fun! What a sweet pancake face!

  2. I'm thinking about making pancakes tomorrow! Thanks:)
