Sour Cream - Mango Pancakes with Candied Pecans


It was a breakfast for dinner night at our house tonight. I had originally planned to make these pancakes last weekend, but we had a wedding to go to Saturday and I had a migraine on Sunday. I threatened to make them without the girls until they countered with plans to mutiny.

If you’re like me, the idea of sour cream pancakes makes you wrinkle your nose. I’m not a sour cream person. Just like me, I hope you are pleasantly surprised. The sour cream just adds a little tang to balance the mangos’ sweetness.

These pancakes puff up beautifully when cooked over LOW heat on a buttered griddle. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle and then sprinkle mango on top. Flip when the batter begins to bubble.

I cook the pancakes in batches and then keep them warm in the oven so the family can eat together. Ham is a good accompaniment to this meal.

I’m so full. Three pancakes and 2 slices of ham were plenty. Just don’t skip the candied pecans.
