Reviews for Fluffy Pancakes
"These had great flavor! I used mostly buttermilk because I had some to get rid of, but this is a good recipe to have when I only have milk."
"This is one of my favorite pancake recipes. Very simple and good. I will sometimes add vanilla or lemon juice to the recipe just for something different."
"I just tried these, and they were great !. I added toasted pecans to them !"
"Easy and tasty. Very similar to the pancakes my mom used to make."
"Easy and simple..i love it"
"great pancake recipe. Fluffy and yummy, and all ingredients that I have on hand. I butter the skillet instead of using cooking spray to give it a slightly crisp buttery outside."
"I couldnt find my "go to" recipe this morning so I tried these pancakes. They are the BEST!!! I added a tsp of vanilla and used butter instead of shortening with a bit more milk, and VOILE`... they were just perfect!!! So now these are my "go to" pancake recipe.... Simple and Deeeeeelicious!!!!!!!!!!"
"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."
