This is the most basic recipe for a slightly thick pancake. It's just as easy to make a quick homemade batter as it is to open a box mix, which needs ingredients added to it anyway. And using organic ingredients seems to give the pancakes a cleaner and truer flavor. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    Great, quick recipe which results in delicious, fluffy pancakes. I did substitute buttermilk for regular milk. I keep buttermilk in powder form in my refrigerator for easy use.

    I love this Pancake recipe. My son loves loves loves pancakes for breakfast every morning and this recipe freezes well. We always make a double batch and freeze and even when reheated they are still very moist and delicious. We also like the taste of cinnamon in the batter.

    These pancakes take longer than thinner pancakes on the skillet- but it was worth the wait! I served with warm honey.

    This will be my new go to pancake recipe for everyday pancakes. Sure buttermilk would be good but I don't keep it in the house. We loved these pancakes and they are just great for a regular saturday morning or breakfast for dinner on a weeknight. Nothing fancy just good. That's what I love about Lucinda!

    Great recipe! I loved it and will use it from now on instead of buying the pancake mix. I will add half a teaspoon of salt next time, though, as I thought it had a bit too much of a salty taste. Still, this recipe is better than any pre-made pancake mix.
