Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Whisk together in another bowl:
3/4 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and gently whisk them together, mixing until just combined. Fold in:
finely grated zest of 2 lemons
The batter weill be thick and bubly simialr to cake batter. Spoon 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake nudging the batter into rounds. Cook until the top is spekled with bubles and some have popped, then turn and cook until underside is lightly browned. Serve immedieately or keep warm in a 200 oven.

Tomorrow we dine! I thought I better test these out to see if they pass the picky eater test. Burn the Joy of Cooking and let's shop for something better.

Gwardo and I had this recipe right before our episode of Hotcakes today.
Best pancakes I've ever had! He had the cookbook, I do not; so I'm glad I found this on your blog!
We talk about it a bit in this episode, if interested.. http://hotcakespodcast.com/episode2010.php?ep=Hotcakes+%2371:+What+is+Super+Bowl%3F
