hello everyone! i am so excited to be part of this fun little blog! i received PW's cookbook for my birthday this past week, so I was giddy to dive in this weekend with my first recipe and post. and I want everyone to know that I was unabashedly made fun of by my husband and sister for taking pictures of the goods. see if i make them pancakes again any time soon! :)
i thought these were really good. i am a pancake person, so i feel that i have a rather experienced palette. they were dense, but not flat - and rich but not too heavy. does that many any sense? i thought the sour cream was perfect. i used light, by the way. i think the key to this recipe is following the instructions specific to not overmixing. i tried to follow her steps exactly, and the results were yummy!
for those of you who are blessed with a gas stove, i'm sure you didn't have to wait as long for a hot pan, but having electric, i did. and i definitely had to cook them longer then 1.5 minutes and 75 seconds on either side (i think those are the suggestions she gives). with a stove setting of around 4-4.5, it took a couple minutes for each side to avoid a gooey center.
