    These pancakes if you call them that do not turn out fluffy. I made them for 3 hungry boys and the batter was so runny. I’ve defintley made my fair share of pancakes and I’d have to say steer clear of this recipe if you want fluffy home style pancakes.

    As is this recipe is pretty good. It makes good tasting, super easy and quick pancakes. I don't give 5 stars, because they aren't very fluffy or voluminous. I've determined that doubling the salt to 1 teaspoon and adding a teaspoon of baking soda (in addition to the 2 teaspoons of baking powder) results in a much fluffier and more substantial pancake that is just as easy!

    Usually make pancakes with a mix, but we were out. Thought these should taste even better, but they were almost not edible. At least the recipe was easy.

    It needs to be doubled as it only made enough for 2 adults. Was the best I have ever made definitely a keeper !!

    I haven’t made pancakes from scratch in YEARS! This recipe was fantastic. I added a smidge more sugar and some vanilla extract. DELICIOUS!!

    Oh my goodness. My husband made this for us this morning and they were great! He added chopped apples, cinnamon and vanilla. They were fluffy and kept their shape. When reading reviews remember there are many different factors and any great recipe can turn out bad from user errors! If you follow this recipe your pancakes will be great. For the review that labeled these as bland? Flour, milk and eggs don't scream out "flavor" it is what you put on the pancake or the extra flavoring you add to the batter. This was a great recipe.

    Dissapointing - very plain and rubber-like

    I'm so disappointed! I always read the reviews, but I didn't this time. Today is my 5 year old's birthday, and I made these pancakes hoping it would be a nice surprise. Pancakes are his favorite! Why didn't I use our standard recipe!!?? Ugh! These pancakes were so thin! Nothing like the picture indicates, and I followed the recipe exactly!

      Hi, just popping a suggestion and make pancakes quite a bit..i use cream, can be a little out of date, milk and sugar, Self raising flour and they come up quite thick

    Thoroughly mediocre recipe. We followed another reviewer's suggestions and started with only 3/4 cup of milk. Even at that, the recipe was the right pancake batter consistency before we added it all. Which means that yes, 1/2 tsp of salt is too much. They were a little too salty before adding syrup.They rose just fine, in fact, they were really thick and fluffy, but (probably since we used only about half the recommended milk) the recipe only made 2-3 pancakes. Not an epic fail, but surely not a family favorite. Does anyone test these recipes before posting?

    This was, hands down, the worst pancake recipe I have ever used. The batter was runnier than my toddler’s nose and the pancakes were flatter than crepes. If I could give it negative stars, I would.
