These lighter-than-air pancakes are perfect for topping with seasonal fruits, such as blueberries, boysenberries or nectarines. Out of season, use well-drained frozen fruit or even fruit preserves. A little grated lemon zest sprinkled over the top at the last minute makes a fresh and tangy garnish.
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup sour cream
1 egg
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
vegetable oil
Blueberry or other fruit syrup, warmed
Fresh or frozen fruits or fruit preserves, optional (see note)
Sour Cream Pancakes Recipe at
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, rolled oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, mixing well.

In a large measuring cup, combine the buttermilk, sour cream, egg and melted butter. Using a fork, beat until well blended. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and mix well with the fork or a whisk to form a smooth batter.

Place a griddle or large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. When a drop of water sprinkled on top skitters across the surface, lightly grease the surface with vegetable oil.

For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the hot surface; do not crowd the surface. Cook until little bubbles appear on the tops of the pancakes, 3-5 minutes. Using a spatula, turn them and cook on the second side until both sides are equally browned, 1-2 minutes longer. Transfer the pancakes to a platter and keep warm while you cook the remaining batter.

TO SERVE: Drizzle the pancakes with warmed fruit syrup, garnish with fruit, if desired, and serve at once.

Best I've ever made!
These were light, tender, and they browned very nicely. Made just the 16 pancakes as indicated, perfect for 4 people. I did add 3-4 T. whole milk as the batter seemed rather thick. Otherwise, made as directed and will now be our go-to recipe. Loved the tang of the buttermilk and sour cream. Was dubious about the cinnamon; may omit next time and add 1/2 tsp. vanilla instead, although the cinnamon did stay nicely in the background. A winner!
