My dad makes blueberry pancakes for us every Saturday without fail. The combination of oats, cornmeal and buttermilk in the batter gives the pancakes heartiness we can't resist. —Gabrielle Short, Pleasant Hill, Iowa

"Good taste, but mine came out pretty thin also. I would maybe try less buttermilk next time."

"Followed recipe exactly like another viewer too flat. And didn't like the flavor combination either. Made another batch with an old recipe."

"Sadly, these pancakes didn't quite do it for us this morning. Not sure what the issue was but they turned out more like wafers or crepes than thick, fluffy pancakes. The flavour of the oats and vanilla didn't quite sit well with the cornmeal and blueberries. I'm a stickler for following a recipe to a T but these just didn't pan out. - Volunteer Field Editor"

"Dad sure makes some good pancakes! These were different, but I really like them and will be making them again. Nice and fluffy and a little healthier than others. I halved the recipe because they were only for me."

"I never have quick cooking oats on hand, only Old fashioned, so I used those. I don't think it would make that much difference since it was such a tiny amount. This is a good recipe and I will be making again."
