"Instead of using milk when you're making pancakes from scratch or a mix, substitute club soda," suggests Betty Kassteen, Morris Plains, New Jersey. "You'll be amazed at how light and fluffy they turn out."
Puffy and pretty, with a refreshing hint of lemon, this berry-topped pancake is a cherished favorite of Lily Julow in Lawrenceville, Georgia. What a melt-in-your-mouth morning wake-up or addition to a special brunch!
The bold colors of cranberries and grapes make them stand out in the juice category, but club soda adds the sparkle that delivers true refreshment. Add ice cubes and a slice of lemon for the full effect. —Karen Schwabenlender, Waxhaw, North Carolina
