    Place the sour cream in a medium bowl, add the flour mixture and whisk until just combined,don't over mix. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla until just incorporated. 
    Heat a skillet under low to medium heat. Place 1 Teaspoon of butter onto the skillet, swirl the butter around to coat the pan where the pancakes will cook. Pour the batter onto the skillet by quarter cupfuls. Cook until bubbles start to form on the surface and the edges start to brown.
