I've been making this recipe for the past 10 years now. It's absolutely delicious as written. I've had a child since then and she loves the pancakes as well. Thank you Mr. Breakfast. I come back to this recipe again and again.

Needed just a couple more Tablespoons of milk for the batter to be just right, but other than that it was a great recipe. Did half plain and for the other half we sprinkled fresh blueberries on top after the batter was dolloped in the frying pan. I recommend trying these with blueberries!

I replaced 1/4 cup of the all-purpose flour with some whole wheat flour and I probably had to add 3 Tablespoons more milk to get a good batter consistency. With those little adjustments, they turned out great.

Hey 'Someone' - there are great cooks who don't even read. I can't stand it when so-called intellectuals insult good intentioned people. The recipe was great.

I made it just as written (skipped the optional vanilla) and they turned out awesome. Not sure what problem those other people were having. They are thicker and more hearty, but that's what I was hoping for. I thought they were great.

Don't normally comment but felt compelled after reading other comments. I followed recipe exactly, and these were light, puffy and delicious. The batter was very thick but made beautiful, round, yellow spongy pancakes, that soaked up the maple syrup, extremely yummy. I found working quickly before the baking powder has chance to fizz up made pouring onto the griddle easier. Thanks for great recipe, nice to see one that doesn't have buttermilk or baking soda as I didn't have either those in stock :) Thanks!

I really liked these pancakes, and had no trouble getting the recipe to work with the specified ingredients/measurements. They weren't fabulous until I spread peanut butter on top, and then they were to die for.

These were unworkable until I added more milk. (I couldn't even spread the first one on the griddle. It was like paste.) Even then, they were very heavy. They might be okay if even more milk and sugar are added. I'm in the market for a new recipe.

Didn't personally care for these too much. The recipe sounded good but we are trying to replace a restaurant from Columbus, OH.

Excellent recipe, I added just a little more milk to thin them out a bit. I added fresh frozen blueberries and they will melt while cooking to make a delicious flavor... To Zach who said it needed more leavening, you had better check your baking powder, it may be old. Put a teaspoon BP in 1/2 cup warm water and if it doesn't fiz, it's too old.

I substituted 1 banana for the eggs and rice milk to make it a vegan recipe - I had to add about an extra 1/4 milk but they turned out great!

It's regrettable a few respondents have been so rude. It's one thing to not care for a recipe, it's another to be a jerk about it. (Someone & TJC)

To the one who complained about the spelling, you also misspelled, so that means you must not be able to think so you shouldn't comment! My daughter loved the recipe! If kids love it, that is saying something!

Learn to type or spell. I will not be using this recipe. If you can't spwll, you might not be able to cook.

Note From Mr Breakfast:
Dear "someone" - I'm very sorry that you were so upset over the spelling of "vegetable" and "whisk" and I have fixed those words immediately so they will never offend anyone again.

This recipe was not good. The pancakes were dry and too heavy. I would recommend finding another recipe that won't ruin your Saturday morning breakfast.

This was not very good... needs leavening. Wish I found a different recipe.

I also liked this recipe. But, people should realize that it's way heartier than a regular pancake. I also added more milk until it had a decent batter consistency.

I love pancakes and cornbread. the perfect combination. Not a chance, tough and very heavy. Did not expect this. It was a waste of good ingredients.

These were so easy and so delicious. All of us loved them (including the 12 month old...). I used rice milk because of my son's allergies and they were still fabulous.

I make these every time i make pancakes... they are delicious! I adjusted by using whole wheat flour, egg whites and only 1 tbsp oil, and they turned out well.

These were a big hit with the family. The cornmeal texture was a nice break from more traditional pancakes. I put banana slices and blueberries on top for presentation value. A splash of maple syrup and honey... good eatin'.

Best cornmeal pancake recipe I've had in recent memory. Easy to make and tasty. I've also tried putting strawberries and (later) chocolate chips right in the batter, which was excellent.
