How to use leftover sour cream??

I bought sour cream for making the unbaked cheesecake. I just wanted a small portion but it came in a bigger container although I chose the smallest one. I sometime have this problem, in the US, everything comes in a bigger portion!! For the cheesecake, I used just one fifth of it, so I still had lots of sour cream left in the fridge. A few months ago, I was in the same situation and I ended up with spoiling the sour cream… So, I wanted to use it somehow this time.

How do you use sour cream? I asked some of my friends, and they told me that they usually used it as a dipping sauce for lots of things. It’s nice but I wanted to use it in a cooking. I decided to go on a little bit of cooking adventure, and it came out really nice so that I really wanted to share it with you 😀

I thought adding some sour cream in a pancake dough would be interesting and it would probably add some “sour” flavor. So, on the weekend after July fourth, I decided to have pancakes for breakfast at home. And I tried…

I made one without and one with sour cream to compare the tastes. In the picture below, the left one is without and the right one is with the sour cream. Oh, the sour cream made a big difference !! A difference in the taste as well as in the texture!!



Here is how the plain dough looked like without the sour cream.



Here is how the dough looked like with sour cream. The dough got thicker.



When the both of them were cooked, I took the picture of the texture inside. Again, the left one is the plain pancake and the right one is the sour cream pancake. Can you see that in the plain pancake, the air holes are bigger and the texture looks drier compared to the sour cream pancake?? When I had the sour cream one, I actually didn’t feel the “sourness” as I had expected, but I felt the deepness in the flavor. Wow.



If you have some sour cream left in your fridge, you should definitely try the sour cream pancake!! It’s worth trying 🙂 I’m sure you will be amazed with the difference 🙂

By the way, I like to spread this creamed honey which my friends recommended to me 🙂 Yummy ♡



I hope you will enjoy the sour cream pancake sometime soon! 🙂 ♪♪ Enjoy eating, and smile a lot ♡♡♡
