These really are the best pancakes ever! The recipe is actually 1-1/2 times a pancake recipe that was printed in "Taste of Home" magazine years ago. I had almost given up making homemade pancakes before finding it and I've been making it ever since. The recipe couldn't be easier and makes the thick, fluffy pancakes we prefer. When making homemade pancakes is this easy, why would anyone use a mix?! An added bonus is knowing you're serving your family something made from all natural ingredients with no artificial flavors, additives, or chemicals. And that's something you can feel good about!

These pancakes are delicious. They are light and fluffy. The batter is very thick so I added some milk to make it more spreadable.

I would eat pancakes every day. These remind me of the pancakes you'd get in a restaurant...so light and fluffy. I always add some cinnamon to the batter.

Wow, I loved this recipe...finally a pancake recipe at home that tastes like the infamous pancake restaurants. I like a fluffy pancake with great texture and flavor and this recipe delivers. I did not have buttermilk, so substituted with 1 cup of milk and 1 T. lemon juice. The servings was right on too! I have never been able to make a restaurant quality pancake before, always using store bought mixes. Never again - thank you TOH Test Kitchen!

These pancakes are absolutely delicious. The batter is rather thick and I needed help getting it out of my measuring cup then flattening on the griddle to pancake size. They cooked quickly and were delicious. Hubby and I loved them.

I thought these pancakes were really scrumptious. I could taste the vanilla and buttermilk in there. I had waited the extra 15 minutes as the Test Kitchen suggested. They were fluffy and light, but filling. We could only eat two apiece. But the rest of my family didn't get that excited, which was disappointing.

I've made a lot of pancakes and these really are the best. They're light and fluffy. The vanilla gives them a nice flavor boost. My new go to pancake recipe.

I just made these pancakes and they were great! I had to change one thing — I used olive oil instead of butter because I was totally out of butter and that never happens!!! Anyway, the pancakes were delicious — thick, but light and fluffy. Can’t wait to make them again! Yum!! (I may try a few suggestions made here like adding nuts, raisins, etc.)
