Best recipe to use up the left over sour cream or buttermilk in your fridge. A bit fiddly but worth the effort as the pancakes come out light and very fluffy.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Heat oil in frypan. Mix wet ingredients and whisk in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients and make a well in the centre. Add wet ingredients and fold through with a metal spoon. Don't over stir the mixture as you want as much air in the mixture as possible.
  3. Place spoonfuls in the frypan and cook until bubbles have formed and ready to flip. Once cooked on the other side, stack them on a plate.
  4. Top with your choice of topping. I used maple syrup, blackberries and a drizzle of ice cream.


Make this recipe gluten free by using GF flour. Use whatever fruit you have to use up as other toppings - the options are endless.
