Wow, these little pancakes tasted great. I was a little nervous because the batter was so thin, but they firmed up nicely. They had a lovely texture and a really nice flavor. They were quick and easy to make with great results. I served them with the sour cream mixture and strawberry jam, for a really nice contrast. Thanks so much for sharing.
