I love Sunday mornings.
Especially when a beautiful sunrise
greets you as you linger
over the very first cup of coffee.
The view out my kitchen window.......
Good Morning Texas!

Pancakes and bacon...
the perfect pairing.
Now, my favorite recipe for pancakes
is The Pioneer Woman's Sour Cream Pancakes.
But.....this recipe definitely rivals that one!
They are feathery light, fluffy and melt in your mouth delicious!
Pancakes will forever remind me of Daddy.
He got on these kicks about food.....
he made pecan pancakes every morning
for probably thirty years!

The reason you find so many awful pancakes is because
people over mix the batter.
All you need is a few strokes with a spoon,
just enough to incorporate the ingredients.
Only flip them once!

The Pancakes
3/4 cup milk
2 T. vinegar
1 cup flour
3 T. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. soda
1/2 t. salt
1 egg
2 T. melted butter
1 t. vanilla

Add 2 T. vinegar to the 3/4 cup milk.
Allow to sit for 10 minutes.

In a mixing bowl,
blend together the dry ingredients.
Add the sour milk.
Blend in 1 egg, melted butter and vanilla.
Allow to sit for 10 minutes. (do not omit this step)
After 10 minutes,
dip out batter gently 
with 1/2 cup scoop.
Cook on hot griddle,
flipping only once.

Top with fresh blueberries, butter and hot maple syrup.
Divine, I tell you! 


  1. Oh I believe you! They have to be delicious for they certainly LOOK delicious. Thank you for the tips. I know not to overmix, but did not know to allow the batter to rest.

    1. You will be so pleased with this great little recipe Vee. They turned out so light..easy breezy!

  2. Oh my, those look good. As my mama would say 'good enough to eat'. Wish I had some right this very moment.

  3. Betsy, this recipe is very similar to mine! Overmixing is the key, but I too have never let them rest. I will try this and no flipping! Your pancakes are gorgeous! I may have to make some for lunch! ♥

  4. Good Morning Texas... I will be trying these pancakes very soon, I did Pin this so it won't get lost! I think I love Texas... And of course YOU!
    Hugs, Roxy

  5. Betsy, I love your sunrise photo. So pretty. Well your breakfast is pretty also. :):) I have made a million pancakes in my life time...but I do not like them. I love waffles though. LOL. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo,Susie

  6. Cold mornings, hot pancakes...what could be better. Thank you for the inspiration, XOXO

  7. Hello Ms. Estelle, well it's my day off, and I decided to make your pancakes-they're delish! I usually make Emeril Lagasse's pancakes, and your are right up there with his-your recipe is a keeper, thank you for the recipe

  8. Hello Betsy, I'm coming over through Tessa's blog. Boy, do I love pancakes with blueberries, so I thought I'd comment on this post. What a wonderful breakfast, and the bacon makes it even better. This is such a pretty sunrise. You are a Texas gal? I'm a California gal, and I enjoy the sunrises more than the sunsets because I'm an early bird. Just wanted to tell you that you have such a lovely blog with many splendid pictures.

    Have a sweet day.
