    I made the variation #2, with yogurt. I used greek yogurt 6% (that's what I normally buy) and milk 1%. I added 2 teaspoons of sugar, because we like pancakes a tiny bit sweet. They turned out awesome.

    We make these pancakes all the time and they are always perfect! The comments on this recipe are hilarious though - either people love them and they’re nice and fluffy or people hate them and think they’re too thin. Personally, ours have never been thin! Strange that so many people are having that result. Anyway, we love these and it’s my go-to recipe for pancakes.

    I really don't know how I feel about these pancakes. They were very blan and at first very thin. I added chocolate chips and a little bit more flour to make them thicker and sweeter and THATS when they turned out great. I really do recommended adding flour and some kind of sweet topping!!

    These might have been the worse pancakes I ever made. They didn't hold their shape whatsoever, and were dry, salty and overall unappetizing. We had to preform major surgery to the entire recipe to make it semi-edible. You should never, under any circumstance, make these pancakes, unless you are doing a presentation on the handling of poisonous substances.

      Excellent description of the aftermath of trying this recipe. I was sure I somehow missed an ingredient to explain how the pancakes ended up so thin and crepe-like. Never muffed up a pancake recipe before. Relieved to see I’m not the only one who found this recipe unsatisfactory.
