Easy Light Pancakes

Our house is often filled with our kids' friends, and they always seem to be hungry. There are seldom any leftovers when I make these pancakes.—Ernest Foster, Climax, New York

    Awesome recipe! Love that it is light. The batter is thick and a little hard to spread, but love the taste. I was looking for a light fluffy pancake, this is it. This will be my go to recipe!!

    These are very good! Very light, unlike others we've had. They do not have eggs like other recipes, perhaps that's why they are so light. Will definitely make these again!
