I thought this recipe was great, although I only got 7 pancakes using a 1/4 c measure. ?? Like other reviewers, I always put in vanilla. Today I sprinkled with cinnamon before I flipped them. Excellent decision.

This recipe came out perfect, for me. Tall, fluffy pancakes which were fully cooked inside but deeply golden on the outside. I used melted butter, and since it was salted, I cut down the salt by a pinch. Also, I added blueberries just before cooking.

I followed this recipe exactly as it said and the batter came out more like crepe batter. I had to add some extra flour to thicken it up. Still cooking so I have yet to taste.

They were SO GOOD. I added a spoonful of Hershey's cocoa to the batter to make chocolate pancakes. ????

Fairly simple enough to follow recipe, but like others, I made a couple of changes: added more milk to make the batter a bit thinner, and a bit more sugar to compensate for the added milk. I did so after trying to make a pancake with the original recipe, and ended up with a pancake that was way overcooked on the outside and still raw on the inside. The thinner batter and lower than I would normally set temperature made for a fully cooked golden pancake. I'm just waiting for my daughter's opinion on the flavor now. ??

These were excellent! To make them even fluffier, let the batter rest for about 10 minutes after you stir it up. Mmmm!

sure to cook on low heat otherwise pancakes come out tasteless and burnt, other than that, great recipe!
