Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1½ c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 c. plus 2 tbsp. milk
  • ¼ c. sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tbsp. melted butter, plus more for pan
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar
  • 1 c. shredded mozzarella
  • ¼ c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • Coarsely ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • Maple syrup, for serving
  • Crumbled bacon, for garnish
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a medium bowl, whisk to combine milk, sour cream, egg, and melted butter. Gently fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt ½ tablespoon butter. Pour a scant ⅓ cup pancake batter into pan twice to make two pancakes. When little bubbles appear, about 3 to 4 minutes, flip one pancake and top with ¼ cup cheddar, ¼ cup mozzarella, 1 tablespoon Parmesan, and a pinch black pepper. Flip remaining pancake. Continue cooking until second side is golden and cheese is melty, 3 minutes more.
  3. Top cheesy pancake with plain pancake, then evenly spread ½ tablespoon mayonnaise onto the top pancake. Flip and cook until a golden crust forms, 1 minute. Spread ½ tablespoon mayonnaise on to the second side, then flip to cook until a golden crust forms, 1 minute more. Transfer sandwich to a plate.
  4. Repeat with remaining batter, cheeses, and mayonnaise.
  5. Serve with maple syrup and garnish with bacon, if desired.
