Very good and convenient recipe. I added a little more sugar. We really liked that they were light and fluffy.

No one liked this recipe. I make a mean buttermilk pancake with flavor. This had no flavor at all. I gave the pancakes to thei pigs-they're not fussy, at least they didn't go to waste. I should have known it wouldn't be that good with SIX eggs.

I loved the ease of these pancakes. It makes the morning go faster to already have the pancake batter made. I used regular milk in place of the buttermilk since I didn't have any on hand. I also replaced the oil with applesauce for health reasons and added some maple flavor to them. They were very good and they made a TON! For our family of 4 children I am estimating that we have enough pancakes for 3 days! Seriously! That's my kind of recipe!

I love this recipe! It is perfect for early morning breakfast. It does make a lot but the recipe can be easily halved. Thanks for sharing!

Hello, T. Drake It's not best to keep food with raw eggs in it over 24 hours in the frig.

Will the batter keep in the fridge more than one night? I'd be interested in making the recipe but it makes so much.T. Drake
