Cheddar Pancakes

"I adopted this from the Recipezaar account and have not yet made it. Update: I have since made this and they did not turn out for me. Not sure what happened or where I went wrong but there seemed to not be enough flour for the amount of wet ingredients. If you have any suggestions I'd be glad to hear them!"

  1. I really enjoyed this tasty savory pancake Flower. I scaled it down for one person, it worked really well. The pancakes were very fragile, while baking, be gentle when turning. They firm up nicely as they cool. I served them wrapped around a slice of chicken, drizzled with cilantro mayonnaise for a truly spectacular lunch. What an amazing flavor these pancakes have. Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe. Made for Spring Pac 2014.
  2. I would have given only one star except the "batter" tasted so good. It did not turn out as a pancake at all. Not even close to the picture. Stuck to the pan and turned into a mess, more like scrambled eggs. Imagine trying to fry a pile of cheese and sour cream. It doesn't stick together to flip, it sticks to the pan instead. And I was using a teflon pan with a lot of butter. But the batter tasted wonderful, I would use it to make a cheese empanada or something like that. I must confess that I ate that scrambled mess anyway. Maybe more flour? I dont't understand why the recipe listed flour twice in the ingredients, maybe there is a typo.
  3. Great pancakes !!! Made exactly as posted. Excellent flavor, and taste. Served with Bacon rolled omelets. A real easy great tasting recipe making to start off the morning. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
  4. Yum! I made this for brunch for our 8th wedding anniversary. I made two batches one with real egg yolks and other with egg substitute, I used Australian Cheddar Cheese. The flavour was really nice, I served them with sausages and grilled tomatoes. We all really enjoyed the savoury pancakes. Thank you flower7


I have a degree in archaeology from a small Ohio college and I work for the Ohio History Connection. My passions are art, music, books, food, history, and cats/animal welfare. I also love photography. I have a 1,000 (plus) piece collection of vintage flower pins from the 1960's, hence the username ha. I also have small collections of vintage butterfly pins, vintage tablecloths, and vintage glass Christmas ornaments. (Can you tell I love vintage?) I took a trip to the Netherlands in March 2006 and fell in love! I doubt it will happen but if I ever have the opportunity I would love to live there.
