Pancakes for Two Recipe

These light and fluffy pancakes are perfectly portioned for two, so there's no need to worry about what to do with leftover batter. For a special taste treat, I like to prepare them with blueberries.—Annemarie Pietila, Farmington Hills, Michigan

"Made these this morning for my husband and myself. They were on the table within 20 min. They were delicious! I substituted the oil for 2 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter and used fresh whole milk instead of buttermilk. I only used 1 cup of milk, because I like the batter to be a little thicker. All in all it is a great go to recipe!"

"Oh man! I thoroughly enjoyed these pancakes, and they were a breeze to make! I made the buttermilk with regular milk and a few tablespoons of vinegar, just let it sit a few minutes and that's it! I used whole wheat flour and they turned out AMAZING!!"
