Piping hot and puffy from the oven, this golden pancake made a pretty presentation for a skier's theme breakfast I hosted. Served with my homemade buttermilk syrup, it's an eye-opening treat. That easy syrup tastes great on waffles and French toast, too. -Renae Moncur, Burley, Idaho

Very good, I add about 1T sugar to give it a little extra flavor and use regular syrup instead of the buttermilk syrup

My Family loves this recipe for breakfast. Easy...nothing like putting everything in the blender and pour! Not crazy about the buttermilk syrup, I think it's just a "born in Wisconsin" thing that only real maple syrup tastes the best. Add pumpkin pie spice to kick it up a bit.

I added a half teaspoon to tsp. vanilla and some nutmeg and cinnamon for flavor. Then I just used regular maple syrup. I would try the buttermilk syrup if I'd had more time but my kids were hungry! In the future I will add cornstarch and eliminate some of the flour to make it a lighter texture like I do with waffles. Overall though this did turn out very well.

I love this recipe. I have copied it and given it out to several friends!! One friend now uses it for her Christmas morning breakfast dish!
