  • About This Recipe

    “I adopted this from the Recipezaar account and have not yet made it. Update: I have since made this and they did not turn out for me. Not sure what happened or where I went wrong but there seemed to not be enough flour for the amount of wet ingredients. If you have any suggestions I’d be glad to hear them!”

  • “I would have given only one star except the “batter” tasted so good.It did not turn out as a pancake at all.Not even close to the picture.Stuck to the pan and turned into a mess, more like scrambled eggs.Imagine trying to fry a pile of cheese and sour cream.It doesn’t stick together to flip, it sticks to the pan instead.And I was using a teflon pan with a lot of butter.But the batter tasted wonderful, I would use it to make a cheese empanada or something like that.I must confess that I ate that scrambled mess anyway.Maybe more flour?I dont’t understand why the recipe listed flour twice in the ingredients, maybe there is a typo.”
