Patriotic Pancakes

I have never been a huge pancake fan, but my husband is doing a good job trying to convince me otherwise.  We have found a delicious pancake recipe made from scratch that is to die for.  We have made it over and over.  The kids keep asking for it again.  I think that’s a good sign.

Cloud Cakes
Serves 4
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs, separated + 1 extra egg white
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. 
  • Mix buttermilk, sour cream, eggs, and butter in a medium bowl. 
  • Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients and mix. The batter should be lumpy with visible streaks of flour. 
  • Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form. 
  • Using a spatula, carefully fold whites into batter until just combined. A few streaks of whites should be visible.
  • Using 1/4 cup portions, cook on a skillet at 325 to 350 degrees for approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
