Read "The Subtle Art of Perfect Pancakes" on this site. This article has several tips, one of which is to refrigerate the batter for a while to allow the gluten to settle down and let the baking powder start to act, resulting in fluffy pancakes. Also , do not stir before using as this pops all the little bubbles created from the sitting. Interesting, huh!?! Anyway, except for a little vanilla, made recipe as it reads and I was happy with them.



Great pancakes! I looked through the previous reviews and changed the recipe: 1. Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon 2. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 3. Use only one egg with a doubled recipe 4. Chill the batter for 20-30 minutes beforehand 5. Use 3/4 cup milk (or 1 1/2 cups milk with a doubled recipe) I also used melted butter instead of oil.



Excellent. I've been using the Good old Fashioned Pancakes recipe from this site for ever and found this one to be much much better. Batter was perfect. Looks thin when you put it on the griddle but fluffs up so nicely. I use a little shortening on the griddle so they don't stick. My new favorite pancake recipe.
