Sour Cream Pancakes are a perfect go to breakfast or dinner. You probably have all the ingredients on hand that you need along with about 10 minutes of your time.
How to Make Sour Cream Pancakes
- Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Combine wet ingredients in another bowl.
- Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
- Brush griddle to medium high heat and brush with butter.
- Use a scoop to put batter into hot griddle. This will help your pancakes be evenly sized.
When To Flip Pancakes
Pancakes are ready to flip when bubbles form on the surface and begin popping. The edges of the pancake will also begin to look dry and set.
Can You Use yogurt instead of sour cream in Pancakes?
I recommend using a 2 % or whole milk plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. You can use a nonfat or low fat but the pancakes may be less fluffy.
What Makes Your Pancakes Fluffy?
The sour cream helps make the pancake fluffy as well as they way they are mixed.
Pouring the wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and then mixing until just incorporated is important. Not over mixing your pancakes makes them light and fluffy.

Can You Freeze Sour Pancakes?
Pancakes freeze great. Allow them to cool to room temperature and then place them in a single layer in a freezer bag.You can! Simply let the cooked pancakes cool to room temperature.
The Best Way to Reheat Pancakes
Use the toaster to reheat your pancakes. If they are frozen you do not need to thaw them first. They can also be warmed in the oven on a cookie sheet at 225 degrees F.
