"I love how quick and easy this recipe is. I like to blend everything together in the blender like other puff pancake recipes. They syrup is really good too. I've actually made the syrup alone and put on plain pancakes."

"Excellent, very quick dessert. Only I'd leave the pancake less time in the oven or maybe decrease the temperature. I'm not sure. It was a little too brown with the time you gave. Any advice?"

"I love this pancake but we call it Flaffle as the recipe is German. Put your eggs in a blender for 1 min. and then add all the other ingredients and turn on for another 1 min. Pour into a pan that was heated in the oven at 425 with the butter. Key is HOT pan, sizzling butter and yes it should be flatish in the middle. Sides puff way up but we eat this the German way with fresh lemon juice squeezed over it and then powdered sugar. Had this for breakfast yesterday morning. It is a family favorite."

"When I was making the recipe, I wondered what the rising/leveling agent was... How could this rise properly without baking powder/soda? But i ignored my instincts and followed the recipe. My edges puffed, but the middle was flat as a pancake (pun intended). Afterwards, I went through the reviews and realized this is a common problem; and it makes sense. It still tasted good (my husband ate almost the whole thing!). Next time I'm going to add some baking powder and see if that helps with the uneven rising. I will update when I get it right."

"I am quite impressed. The edges puffed up more than twice as high as my pie dish while baking, but deflated shortly after being removed from the oven. I did not make the blueberry sauce; instead, I sprinkled some powdered sugar and drizzled a little syrup--taste is very similar to french toast. I only used 1Tbsp. butter to coat the bottom of my pie dish; 2 Tbsp. would have been too much. Will definitely make again."

"I've made this 4 times now and it seems to turn out slightly different each time (oven temp, etc.?). My family has LOVED it every time! My 9 year old son wants to try to make it himself. That is a first for him! (I also use 3 eggs instead of 2 as suggested by another review)."

"I can't believe everyone had such success with this recipe. The first time I made it I followed the directions exactly, it turned out like a big blob, all wet and never did rise. The edges that got a little pancake like we tried and the flavor was very good.

Second try, I cut back on the liquid a little, same results. Try number three I used bisquick, (generic) thinking it would rise better, nope, same ressults. Would like to try it again, but won"t unless someone can give me a suggestion that will make it go. The taste is definately very good, but when I make it, the texture is a disaster."

"Simple. Tasty. Definitely a repeat recipe.

I didn't measure the butter, so it was a bit puddly in the center, which may have changed its consistency but it was cooked all the way through.
We opted to not do the blueberry sauce this time, but maybe next time.
I think this would pair quite well with bacon. Because bacon makes all things better."

Nice change from "regular pancakes". The blueberry sauce is delicious, but because I didn't have orange juice, I substituted lemon-line soda."

"I saw this recipe this morning and made it today for brunch for my husband, and I am not sure what happened or how it is supposed to turn out. The sides were raised high but the inside was flat and not very cakey, like the picture. The inside was very thin and had not much taste. You mostly tasted the blueberry sauce. I wonder if that is how it is supposed to be I followed the directions to the letter."

"Wow this is good! I just made this for dinner for me, hubby, and our 4 and 8 yr old. I didn't even make the blueberry sauce...this time. I made this for dinner and scrambled eggs, and each of us got 1 serving of the pancake. I must say, it was sooooo good. I usually put a lot of syrup on pancakes, and I was astonished that I did not put any! And no one else did either! It was naturally sweet and good. We ate it with our hands kinda like bread. Will definitely make it again...and try it with the sauce!"
