My 13 year old grandson loved these pancakes, I added toasted walnut for the crunch and because we love walnuts.. The syrup was delicious and easy to make. Definitely making them again.

Very good! I omitted the raisins, but that is a personal preference. I would make these again and would HAVE to double the recipe next time!

Seems like alot of work for 2 servings - Willing to try it once, hopefully it's worth it!

These were really good. I especially liked the syrup! I doubled the recipe, and still barely had enough for 8 pancakes that were about 6 inches in diameter. They come out thick and dense, but very good!

The pancakes are wonderful. The syrup is way too sweet. Will be changing that recipe around a bit I think.
