  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 TBS canola oil for cooking pancakes

  • 1/2 cup shreeded medium cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 TBS fresh chives cut small

  • Mix together the milk, egg, sour cream, and vinegar.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and baking powder.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix. The batter will be a little lumpy.
  • Place the batter in the refrigerator to rest for 10 minutes.
  • After the batter has rested, add the corn, cheese, bacon, and herbs.
  • Heat a large skillet on high.
  • Add the canola oil.
  • Turn the heat down to medium.
  • Scoop pancake batter onto skillet.
  • When you see small holes form on the top of the batter, it's time to flip the pancake.
  • Cook for another few minutes until you see the edges start to crisp.
  • Remove the pancakes from the skillet.
  • Garnish with sour cream and fresh parsley.


Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  • This batter is thick and loaded but do not worry, it's supposed to be thick. I used a 1/3 cup measure to scoop the batter into the skillet. Because it's thick, I then used the back of the measuring cup to spread the batter. I was able to cook three pancakes at a time in my skillet. This recipe makes 8 4-inch pancakes. Depending upon your appetite, 1-2 pancakes make a serving. 
  • To keep the cooked pancakes warm while you are cooking all of them, place a piece of foil on the oven grate and set the oven at 250°. You can also use a cookie sheet instead of foil. Place the pancakes in the oven while you are finishing the batch. 
  • When flipping pancakes, use your wrist and not your arm. You'll be surprised at how easy they are to flip. This might take a little practice, but once you've got the wrist method down, all your pancakes will flip easily and look perfect.
