Ann Schenk (at Left) of Winnett, Montana, has used the recipe for Pancakes for One for years. Originally it served six. "As our kids grew up and left home, I scaled down the recipe," Ann says. "Now if my husband, Mike, or I have a taste for these pancakes, it's easy to make just a few."

"This is perfect! I made two recipes, which was more than enough, but they're delicious! I used all flour (w/o the wheat germ), I added a touch of ginger and nutmeg, and some sugar. (from reading a few other reviews) Definitely a keeper. Thank you!"

"Just like the larger batches I used to make for my family! I'm alone so don't have all ingredients on hand. I used 1/2 tbsp white vinegar in milk in place of buttermilk, crushed walnuts instead of wheat germ. Added 1 teaspoon of sugar. PERFECTION!"

"I didn't have buttermilk, so sub'd with sour milk (1/2 cup of milk with 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice). Only used a pinch of salt. Made more than enough for one."
