Happy Birthday to Me!
My sister sent me currant syrup and dessert topping from New York, so I decided to whip up some old-fashioned sour cream pancakes. You know that anything made with sour cream is gonna be delish and these pancakes are no exception.
The ingredients were simple: just flour, leavening, salt, milk, eggs, and sour cream – plus a little melted butter. Yes…butter. I whip the eggs into complete submission (until they are light and fluffy) and then alternately add the dry ingredients with the wet.
Making pancakes really isn’t the time to watch calories, so I go all out and cook mine in more…butter. I like the way that the batter crackles around the edges and deep-fries – kinda like I’m starting a funnel cake.
These pancakes were a great way to start my birthDAY….
Actually, my birthday started three weeks early. My husband and Charlie wrapped my presents and set them out around the house to torture me. It didn’t work because I started opening them! I’m naughty. I treated myself to one every now and then. It was very fun…but by the time my birthday actually arrived, I was out.
My parents saved the day and brought me a beautiful cake. I LOVE wedding cakes…
Did you say that I look 28?
Why, thank you!!
Thank you very much!!
