"When I was young, my mother introduced our family to this delicious way to use up leftover buttermilk pancakes," says Donna Bielenberg of Tabernash, Colorado. "In fact, my father urged us not to eat all the pancakes so we could have these yummy cinnamon-and-sugar squares later."
"This recipe yields just a short stack of oat pancakes that's perfect for one or two," reports Florence Groves of Vancouver, Washington. "When we used to travel in our motor home, I'd measure out the dry ingredients for individual batches in resealable bags, then just combine with an egg, buttermilk and butter for a quick meal."

Friends and family will flip over these light whole wheat pancakes with a sunny twist of citrus. Earl Brunner of Las Vegas, Nevada adapted them from a traditional pancake recipe. "Feel free to mix raisins or dried cranberries into the batter to add a bit of chewy sweetness," he recommends.

"My husband - who is not a big sweets eater - often requests this hearty dish. Peaches add a touch of fruity flavor to the savory sausage," writes Nicole Clayton from Las Vegas, Nevada. "It's a nice combination."
"I modified a traditional Dutch baby recipe given to me by a friend to come up with this version my family thinks is terrific," says Mary Thompson, LaCrosse, Wisconsin. "You'll be surprised at how easy it is to make."
