The only reason this gets a five is because there is no six. My six year old who only eats frozen waffles for breakfast ate two.

I just made this recipe at 8pm tonight to experiment for tomorrow morning... well, they were so good that my family ate every one of the pancakes and said "Mom these can't be yours because they are so good!" I sprinkled each with a little cinnamon before serving with a little syrup on top... fabulous!!

Good basic recipe to add ingredients to the pancakes before you flip them like blueberries or mini chocolate chips. I'd add some more flavor if eating plain, like cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. But overall, I really liked this recipe.

Not a bad recipe, taste is good but, texture is moderately good, but there are better results with other recipes for less or much the same effort involved here... still it beat going to McDees for a pancake fix...

This recipe was very delicious. The batter came out with perfect consistency after I added an additional 2-3 table spoons of milk. I made chocolate chip, banana, and strawberry pancakes... They loved each flavor individually. My favorite is always the banana... Will be keeping this recipe and never doing pancakes out of a box mix again!.. Thank you Mr. Breakfast!

By Alicia of Baton Rouge, LA... I just think it's more fun to put where u r from, I just finish cooking the panny's and they do taste good I like the texture of them and the directions were clear and very easy if some one had problems cooking there's it's because they didn't follow directions and cook them too fast so on that note they came out pritty good but if u like your panny's a little bit sweeter like me then add more sugar I did and they were good!!

So far I have mixed the batter. I had trouble beating the egg whites and added them when they were as best as I could get them. I am cooking the pancakes and they look very appetizing. They weren't as fluffy as they should be (that was my fault) and they weren't very sweet. With added toppings they seem fine.

I just made these pancakes for about 10th time this year. Always PERFECT. I used the optional vanilla and about a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Once we added about a tablespoon of chopped pecans to the batter and I'd recommend that for sure. Thanks for a great recipe. Loving the site.

This is a good go-to recipe for pancakes. It definitely needs the vanilla and next time I'll probably add a little nutmeg or cinnamon too.

This was a great recipe. I made them just as it said and cooked them on a cast iron skillet with earth balance. I added raw pistachios and sliced bananas to each pancake once I put it on the skillet. when you flip them, the bananas get nice and fried.

I make these pancakes differently. I do not put in any oil because I prefer to butter the pan and I also put the eggs and milk in first and just a pinch of salt and then I mix it all together but this is the closest thing to greatness ever.

By For Sheryann

"Folding the whites in" means to gently mix the stiffened egg whites with the rest of the batter so that the air bubbles in the whites are not all broken. You can "fold" them in by spooning or pouring the whites on top of the batter. Then use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to scoop up some of the batter underneath onto the top of the whites. Fold the batter and whites together a few times but don't stir or beat them together so much that the air bubbles are all crushed. Before you fold the stiffened egg whites, you'll need to separate the egg whites from the yolks and beat the whites until they are stiff. Use a non-plastic bowl (glass or metal) and a wire whisk like a balloon whisk. Beat the egg whites rapidly until they turn white and foamy. I prefer to stop before they turn too stiff and "dry" but they should be stiff enough to form small peaks when you lift them out. This looks like a good recipe, but I found that two the three tablespoons of butter is tastier than oil. Keep the salt for unsalted butter, and omit it if the butter is salted. The milk-to-flour quantities determine the thickness of the pancakes. I usually use one cup of each. It is important to understand the "leavening" of the beaten egg whites and chemical leavening of baking powder and soda. Beaten egg whites can make the cake fluffy as the hot air in the bubbles expand in cooking. Chemical reactions occur with sodium bicarbonate and other baking powder chemicals in water to release carbon dioxide gas that also bubbles and makes the texture of the cake fluffy. The amount you beat the egg whites effects how they respond in heat. At higher altitudes, overbeaten whites will blow out. Likewise, too much chemical leavening will blow up too soon before the cake has cooked sufficiently to hold the texture.
