Is there such thing as too fluffy of a pancake? The batter was extremely fluffy to the point I that they would not completely cook through on the stove top and had to be finished in the oven which resulted in a flat heavy pancake once completely cooked through.

I just made these pancakes and they were awesome, better than any prepackage mix from the store. They are more then worth the 5 stars.

This is by far the best pancake recipe I’ve found and done... it needs more than 5 stars.. I’ve done with cinnamon and little xtra sugar, and used chocolate milk instead of white milk but have to double up the milk if u switch, and added little vanilla extract..

I’ve been looking online for the perfect pancake recipe. After trying several others, my family agrees THIS is the keeper! My 9 year old is about as picky as they come, and she LOVES these! Fluffy and delicious!

I just made these for my brunch and they're really good. I added cinnamon to them but I will add chocolate chips to make them even more tasty.

Just made these for breakfast. Used whole wheat flour and added about 1/4 tsp almond extract.Turned out very yummy — will definitely make again.

The only thing bad I could say, which isn’t even bad at all, is to put like 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla. I always put vanilla in my pancakes so I was like ok I’ll just add it in but to me pancakes are sooo much better with vanilla but it’s a perfect batter and really easy to make into a perfect shape. Will use this recipe every time
