You know what the secret ingredient is to great pancakes? It's sour cream. These pancakes are a family recipe that everyone loves.

Fly-Off-The-Plate Pancakes
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
2 1/2 Tbsp. sour cream (we like Daisy. It's close to natural)
2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix rest of ingredients with a wire whisk until frothy; add to dry mixture, stirring just until smooth. Lightly grease griddle. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot (375 deg.) surface. Cook pancakes until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked; turn. Serve with butter and syrup or honey, or your favorite jam if desired. Makes about 1 dozen.

This has been my go-to pancake recipe for many years now. The pancakes always turn out perfectly. I will never use another pancake mix again!
