My grandma Arizona Lisco  (nee’ Frazier, nee’ Scott) made the best pancakes and I think I come close to the flavor and texture with this recipe. I’ll be honest. I got most of this recipe from my Art Smith cookbook, but I added my own touch.


Here are the ingredients:



2 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/8 tsp salt

2 tablespoons baking powder

1/8 baking soda


“Not So Dry” Ingredients

1 cup sour cream

1 cup buttermilk


“Substance” Ingredients

1 egg

1/4 tsp vanilla

 Lastly Ingredient

1/4 cup melted butter



In 3 separate bowls:

Mix “Dry” ingredients.

Mix “No So Dry” ingredients.

Mix “Substance” ingredients.

Next, Combine the egg/vanilla with the buttermilk/sour cream mixture.

Next , Whisk the flour mixture with the buttermilk mixture.


Be careful not to over mix this. If the batter is too thick, add a few tablespoons of milk until it is a better consistency.

Lastly whisk in the melted butter.


On a griddle set to medium low, add a tablespoon or so of crisco. Then ladle the batter on the pan for each pancake.

Cook until small bubbles start to form on top of the cakes, then flip! Cook until golden brown.


Remove from griddle and add melted butter and syrup. Enjoy!
