Reviews for Fluffy Pancakes

"These are fabulous! Taste like box mix, but so much better! The batter is super thick so I always add a splash more milk to thin just a bit. Still stays nice and fluffy. I love that this recipe doesn't use buttermilk like most pancake recipes because I don't always have it on hand."
"I made these yesterday on a cold snowy New England morning. Wonderful! I agree with another reviewer that they are better than Bisquick. I'm glad I gave these a try. I will definitely make again!"
"Best from scratch pancakes!!! I've been trying different recipes and this one is it, no more looking. Nice and fluffy and simple to make."
"I think this is the recipe I used the other day. I used 3/4 c. of flour and substituted 1/4 c. of Quinoa flour for the remainder of the flour.They came out delicious and left me full of energy and a lasting feeling of fullness.I think this would make an excellent pancake for our children going off to school and their parents going off to work."
"These pancakes truly were light, fluffy, and delicious. I added about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the dry ingredients and 1 tsp vanilla to the wet ingredients. My family loves vanilla flavored pancakes. I also dropped fresh blueberries onto each pancake while the first side was cooking. I had a bit of trouble combining the melted shortening with the milk and egg. Ultimately, I heated the milk and shortening together in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then whisked them together vigorously while adding the egg. Not sure if that's the best technique, but I was pleased with the product."
