Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes (The Pioneer Woman)

I’ve been following “The Pioneer Woman”, aka Ree Drummond, via Twitter and her site for quite some time now. She is always warm, down-to-earth and full of delicious recipes that only require a few ingredients and are super easy to prepare.

After looking at her new book online, I knew that it had to be my next purchase. I brought the book home and immediately fell in l-o-v-e. The stories, the photography and the recipes all tell the tale of her transition from city life to ranch wife…and let me just say, what a wonderful tale that is. She has a knack for teaching people how to slow down, kick off your shoes (eh…boots, in her case) and enjoy great food with family and friends.

I might be surrounded by concrete and rowhouses now, but I haven’t always lived the big city life. Growing up, I lived on quite a bit of land with trees, horses and cows in our backyard. Some day, I know I will return to country life but for now I will live vicariously through Ree and her tales in The Pioneer Woman Cooks.

Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 7 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablepsoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Maple or pancake syrup


  1. Place an iron skillet or griddle over medium-low heat.
  2. Place the sour cream, flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a bowl and stir together generously (allow the mixture to have some texture).
  3. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl and add the vanilla; stir to combine.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the sour cream mixture.
  5. Stir together (don’t worry if it’s not totally combined).
  6. Melt butter in the skillet. Pour the batter into the skillet 1/4 cup at a time.
  7. Cook for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, then flip the pancakes over. Cook for another 45 seconds and remove to plate. Repeat with remaining batter.
  8. Top with butter and maple syrup.

You are going to love these pancakes. To quote my husband, “These are the best pancakes I have ever had. In fact, I don’t want you to make any other pancakes except for these from now on.” What a statement!

I can’t make any promises (I always have to try new recipes) but I know I will be making these time and time again in the future!
