“Years ago, my kids and I enjoyed a cookbook called "The Pooh Cook Book" by Virginia Ellison. Each recipe was accompanied by a line drawing and a quote from the original A.A.Milne books. We loved cooking together, and these recipes and pictures encouraged them to try reading themselves. This became one of our favorites for breakfast or lunch.”
12-16 small pancakes

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
  2. Whisk sour cream, milk, and eggs until smooth. Add the melted butter.
  3. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until smooth, using a whisk or electric mixer. Blueberries are optional. (Mini chocolate chips are sometimes a real treat).
  4. If you like small, thin pancakes, add a very little more milk or water.
  5. Pour 1-2 tablespoons of the batter onto a hot greased griddle. Bubbles should appear in less than a minute. When the pancake bubbles all over, flip it over & brown the underside.
  6. Serve with any of the honey sauces (I'll post them separately), honey butter, plain honey, or syrup.
  7. "Ive been finding things in the Forest," said Tigger importantly. "I've found a pooh and a piglet and an eeyore, but I can't find any breakfast." -- The House at Pooh Corner.
