Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes:Ree & Leigh{Anne}

I love a good pancake.

I love a good light and fluffy pancake.

I love pancakes for breakfast or for dinner.

No thin, skinny pancakes at our house, unless it is a yellow pancake!

If we are going to have pancakes for breakfast it is usually Sunday morning.


A nice warm, fluffy pancake with butter and covered with real maple syrup – yum!!

I was excited to give Pioneer Women’s  Sour Cream Pancakes a try.  Named after Marlboro Man’s grandmother this recipe has been served on the ranch for years.

Using 1 cup of sour cream to 7 Tbsp of flour makes for a very light pancake.  I used full strength sour cream as I don’t believe in that low fat/non fat stuff!


To make them more authentic you need to cook them up in your cast iron skillet just like they do on the ranch!

We really enjoyed Edna Mae’s pancakes but if you are looking for a not quite so fluffy version or you don’t have any sour cream in the house here is another pancake recipe our family enjoys.

And you can find some of our favorite pancake syrups here and here.

How do you like your pancakes – thick and fluffy or thin?

I am also looking for a good whole wheat or whole grain pancake recipe – do you have one to share?

    Yum !! Those pictures are making me very hungry right now!! I have always used Bisquick to make pancakes for my kiddos.. But I guess I am going to have to try and make some from scratch using this recipe!

    If you want a good Refried Beans recipe, just let me know.. I made some last night from scratch and they turned out fabulous !!

    I LOVE these pancakes! They are sooo good. I actually have never made them with white flour. I have always used wheat flour and they are very good!
    So there’s your whole wheat pancake recipe :)

  3. Janette says

    I will definitely give these a try. I have a sour cream waffle recipe that is really yummy. Our pancake recipe of choice is a thick, buttermilk pancake. And my whole family likes them a little on the doughy side :)

    Happy Weekend!

    I have made these pancakes several times…WITH Leigh Anne’s syrups!
    They are not only amazing, but provide a “special” basis for family memories. They’re great for making holidays landmark…that’s how we’ve used them.

    This sounds yummy. We love pancakes too and so we will have to try this one. I have a homemade recipe that we love, and even my husband has the recipe memorized by heart.

    MMM, I totally agree about pancakes. I could eat them morning, noon, and night. I actually really like thin ones. Here’s an awesome whole wheat pancake recipe I grew up on. They are a little on the thin side.

    Blender whole wheat pancakes

    In blender:
    1cup whole wheat kernels
    1 cup milk

    Blend on high for full 2 minutes

    1/2 cup milk
    Blend again for 1 minute – important to blend thoroughly or you will have wheat kernel chunks in your pancakes, yuck.

    2 eggs
    1/2 cup oil (I’ve used applesauce too)
    1 tblsp honey
    1/2 tsp salt
    Blend until well mixed

    1 tblsp baking powder
    Blend until just combined, let sit 4-5 min

    Fry on a hot griddle, mmm.

    Pancakes are a Wednesday night tradition around here. Love this recipe, though I’ll have “sneak” it to hubbs who hates yummy stuff like sour cream. Love the whole wheat recipes others have shared too!

  8. says

    These are my husbands favorite pancakes! Every weekend he asks me if I’m going to make the sour cream pancakes, they are indeed delicious!

  9. Shirley says

    Laura (my niece-in-law) sent the recipe that I was going to send!! It’s a good nutritious one with easy clean-up!! I’ve also used the whole grain oat for a variety and a little lighter pancake!!

    Thank you for this delicious recipe. My kids and I made these pancakes this morning, since we had today off from school and work. They turned out fabulous! We added whipped cream to the top and whoa…simply delicious.
