    “These are the lightest pancakes I’ve ever eaten. My business partner (Al) gave me the recipe. Try 1/4 cup of pecans or blueberries in the batter.”

  • “Was craving pancakes so I tried these this morning. Better than Aunt J’s! Just add a lot of milk because the batter thickens after it sits.”

  • “I’m rating this according to my oldest son’s recommendations. He said the pancake was very good, but a little too fluffy for him, which is why he only gave it a 4.They do cook up beautifully and with all the vanilla they smell wonderful while cooking!Thank you so much for posting!This will be my back up for when I’m out of my son’s favorite pancake mix.Made for I Recommend Tag”

  • “I loved these pancakes! They are soo light and fluffy with a perfect slightly sweet flavor. I used a little more than 1/2 cup of milk and made four huge pancakes for my DH and I.”

  • “What an easy pancake recipe. I made these for Valentines breakfast for my DH and DD. Both approved. Also made for the share the love event in Photo Tag.”

  • “This recipe makes wonderfully light and fluffy pancakes!They cook to a beautiful brown every time.You should allow the batter to rest for a few minutes while the griddle is heating up to allow the baking powder to work.I used slightly more milk in the batter for a thinner pancake.I will use this recipe often!Thank you Lee!”

  • “This recipe made wonderful pancakes – light, fluffy and slightly sweet!I am so glad I was out of pancake mix!Thanks Lee!”

  • “Due to my husband’s health issues I unfortunately have to alter almost all recipes. This one we both loved. Changed 2 T oil to 2 T Ricotta Cheese and 1 tsp oil; and 1 c flour to 2/3 c flour plus 1/3 c flax meal. The pancake was light & fluffy, tasted great. If you like sweeter just add more sure but we didn’t find it necessary.”

  • “This recipe did not do it for me (or my husband).The pancakes weren’t as good tasting as others I have had and were rather bland.Also,I almost think there is too much baking powder in proportion to the 1 cup of flour.You definitely should let the batter set before cooking because it does thicken up quite a bit. Adding the pecans is a nice touch, however.”
