Delicious made as is but does make a very large batch. I also made a half batch, for 2 adults and 2 teens, and added 1 Tbsp vanilla and 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed for a very subtle nutty flavor (and health benefits). Turned out just as delicious as the original. I have also sifted the dry ingredients and put in a container for our vacation trips. No more store bought mixes required. This was very fast and easy and will be in our breakfast rotation often. We prefer fruit on top but adding blueberries to the batter would be good also. These are light and fluffy.

So easy to make. Light and fluffy! Great buttermilk taste! Added a little extra buttermilk to thin the batter.

Great recipe! It's got that classic buttermilk taste (duh!). The pancakes turned out with the perfect texture, a nice combination of firm and fluffy. I ended up adding just a little regular milk to thin out the batter a little after doing 1 test pancake. I set the griddle to 325 and made about 40 5" pancakes. They were devoured! This is a keeper recipe.

These were delicious. I halved the recipe, which is usually a mistake. Next time I will make the entire batch and freeze half for easy breakfast.

These were so light and fluffy. Some of the best I've ever made. I put home canned peaches over the top with homemade peach syrup. Totally delicious!,

My new favorite pancake recipe! I was skeptical at first because the batter is so dense and not nearly as runny as some other pancake batters I've made, but the resulting pancakes were the thickest, fluffiest I've ever made! This is a super simple recipe and it can be made very quickly. We'll be making these often!
