Pioneer Woman Pancakes

My sister in law gave me the Pioneer Woman's cookbook for my birthday a few weeks ago. I have been so excited to break it open and get cooking. I started with these pancakes because I wanted to freeze some so I could have them during them during the school year. These were just as easy as any other pancakes and they came out perfectly. Light and fluffly and delicious! To go with my pancakes I made a cinnamon syrup since I don't really care for regular maple syrup. The syrup made them even better than they already were!

Edna Mae's Sour Cream Pancakes

1 cup sour cream
7 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Place an iron skillet or griddle over medium-low heat.
2. Place the sour cream in a medium bowl. Dump in the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
3. Stir together very gently. Stop before being totally combined, it gives the pancakes an interesting texture.
4. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl.
5. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.
6. Pour the egg mixture into the sour cream/flour mixture
7. Stir together gently. Don't worry about the mixture being totally combined.
8. Melt a tablespoon of butter on the skillet. Pour the batter onto the skillet 1/4 cup at a time.
9. Cook for 1-11/2 minutes, then flip the pancake over. Cook for another 45 seconds and remove to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.
