I followed the recipe exact, only using lactose-free milk. I did not need the additional vegetable oil because I cooked the pancakes on my non-stick griddle. These were fluffy and perfect. I served the pancakes with my homemade Buttery Cinnamon Syrup. The family loved them, especially the kids--they had seconds!

Pretty good pancakes. I would definitely recommend more milk...I used 2c and they were still pretty thick. Also, I forgot to add the oil to the batter, but it didn't seem to make a difference. They still turned out really good w/o the oil.

This recipe is absolutely fabulous. I used orange zest and juice instead of lemon. I definitely played around with the spices and added quite a bit more of each. Also added a bit more pumpkin and milk and they turned out perfect! :)
