Years ago, my kids and I enjoyed a cookbook called "The Pooh Cook Book" by Virginia Ellison. Each recipe was accompanied by a line drawing and a quote from the original A.A.Milne books. We loved cooking together, and these recipes and pictures encouraged them to try reading themselves. This became one of our favorites for breakfast or lunch.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup sour cream (or 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup milk) or 1 cup milk (or 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup milk)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
- 1⁄2 cup wild blueberries, canned and drained (optional)
- Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
- Whisk sour cream, milk, and eggs until smooth. Add the melted butter.
- Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until smooth, using a whisk or electric mixer. Blueberries are optional. (Mini chocolate chips are sometimes a real treat).
- If you like small, thin pancakes, add a very little more milk or water.
- Pour 1-2 tablespoons of the batter onto a hot greased griddle. Bubbles should appear in less than a minute. When the pancake bubbles all over, flip it over & brown the underside.
- Serve with any of the honey sauces (I'll post them separately), honey butter, plain honey, or syrup.

My sisters and I grew up on these pancakes! Thank you so much for posting the recipe! I was remembering fondly that my Dad was the pancake chef in our house, and I just made them for my son as a tribute to my Dad on Father's day! (my sister is glad to have it too)
Great pancakes - I used Willamette Valley blueberries (which are very large berries) and added an additional couple of tablespoons, so the pancakes were just bursting with berry goodness. Made for Spring 2012 My 3 Chefs. Edited to add: this batter is very thick, so I added about a tablespoon or so of milk to thin it out.
