The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Fat Tuesday Cakes!

Oh ~ dear ones. . .
this cutting back on carbs is not an easy task!!!

"Mr. Ed" bought me The Pioneer Woman Cooks
Recipes From An Accidental Country Girl 
by Ree Drummond
for Christmas On Crooked Creek!

Love, LOVE, L O V E this new cookbook. . .
but I am quite smitten with Ree's recipe for 
Edna Mae's Sour Cream Pancakes!

Usually, On Crooked Creek,
our cooked breakfast consist of 
"Mr. Ed's" Famous Waffles or my French Toast. . .
but we're both in L O V E with these
Sour Cream Pancakes!!!

Edna Mae's Sour Cream Pancakes:


1 Cup Sour Cream
7 Tablespoons All~Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2  Eggs
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Flavoring
Maple Syrup


Place your iron skillet or griddle over medium~high heat.

Place the sour cream in a medium bowl.

Add flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.

Stir together very, very gently.

Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl.
Add the vanilla and stir to combine.

Place the egg mixture into the 
sour cream / flour mixture.
Stir together gently.

Melt a Tablespoon of butter in the skillet or griddle.
Pour the batter into the pan 1/4 cup at a time.

Cook for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, then flip and cook for
another 45 seconds. Repeat with remaining batter.

Makes twelve 4 ~ inch pancakes!

When I gathered all my ingredients,
 I only had 1/2 cup light sour cream.
So~o~o. . .
I made half the recipe. 

Six perfect Sour Cream Pancakes. . .
three for "Mr. Ed" and three for me!
