cinnamon/vanilla sour cream pancakes

so, it feels like i have not posted anything food related in ages. so here. i made these super dense pancakes, ummmm, well, ages ago? they were simple to make, moist, heavy, cake-y and gobbled up by my four year old. i can not remember where the recipe originated, because i have it scribbled down on a old legal pad, circa 1980's courtesy of the federal government(nasa/dad). truth is, i probably wrote it down with one of those government black pens, too. if you have any connection to nasa or the government, you will know exactly what i am talking about. any way, i digress, now to the recipe. enjoy.

beth's cinnamon/vanilla sour cream pancakes

mix dry ingredients in a bowl-

2 c flour
2 t baking powder
2 T sugar
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt

now mix wet together in a bowl-

4 t melted butter
1 c milk
2 beaten eggs
1 c sour cream( i used reduced fat)
1 T real vanilla

mix your wet into your dry and griddle away. this make a lot of pancakes. i had a stack leftover, wrapped in saran and heated the next morning. i believe this pancakes would be even better with blueberries or chocolate chips sprinkled in when cooking.

ps-notice my hint of chicken up top? it is a table runner. isn't it amazing the useless crap you don' t really need that you can find at big lots!

Delicious! Do you leave it so that there are little lumps of sour cream in them? I do that and they're like little explosions of goodness :D
