    The only thing that I changed in the recipe was that I through all of the dry ingredients in the bowl and mixed them, then instead of dirtying up a second bowl, I added the wet ingredients straight into the bowl with the dry ingredients, then I mixed everything up together. I let the batter sit about 10 minutes while my pan got nice and hot and the batter was real thick when I started cooking. There is no vanilla in this recipe, and I probably would have added some, but I am out. And still, this is the BEST pancake recipe I have ever used. I couldn't believe how simple it is and it could be so perfect. I love things simple and awesome. This made an A+ with both. This is a keeper and the only pancake recipe I will be using from now on. I do not like relying on boxed foods. I would rather make from scratch. Now that I have this recipe, I can experiment with healthier flour options as well. I doubled it for the 5 of us who were eating and we had about 4 nice sized pancakes left over.

      specifications for serving size would be helpful.

    My go-to breakfast recipe! When I half the recipe, the pancakes turn out denser even when I use the smallest egg in the carton. This recipe is so basic that there's plenty of leeway! Sometimes I substitute half the flour with whole wheat flour, throw some oats in, and add a little extra milk. They always taste delicious and this recipe is super quick!

    Made these for Shrove Tuesday and they were fine. I'm gluten-free, so I used Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Flour and added 3/4 tsp xanthan gum. Also, I separated my egg and whipped the white, folding it in after everything else was mixed. The batter seemed thin at first, but after a few moments in the bowl it thickened up. Whipping the egg whites was a new trick for me and I do think it made the pancakes fluffier. I'll be experimenting with this recipe some more.

    I made these for my niece, nephew and granddaughter. They said they were awesome and the best homemade pancakes they've ever had. I followed the recipe exact and they were fluffy and delicious. Typically, I would have preferred to use real butter in the recipe, but I am out, so I used vegetable oil. I did add some chocolate chips to half of it...Amazing!

    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.
