I hade only half of the recipe but used 1 cup of homemade buttermilk instead of the half (3/4 cup). The pancakes were very fluffy and thick. I am waiting for my boyfriend to see if he likes :) Also made a cinnamon syrup and it was perfect. Thanks!

I liked these a lot they came out light tasting and textured. Since I changed a lot of the ingredients even though keeping with the basic recipe I will not give 4 stars. I made ours gluten free which worked very well using mostly white rice flour, some brown rice flour and half the amount of sweet rice flour that acts as a starch, I used more baking soda and some organic apple cider vinegar along with the apples to leave out the baking powder, I used sea salt, Balkan (thick) yogurt mixed with water for the butter milk and straight for the sour cream to be corn free, I used coconut butter/oil in place of the butter as that is what I had on hand and liked that it was lactose free that way, for the apple I used red delicious. DD1 (4 years) and I both found we didn't taste the apple/cinnamon that much but it was still lightly sweet with slight apple taste. Topped with honey for DD1. I may make these again with a tarter apple and serve with maple syrup.

Yummy. I halved the recipe and it was enough for 2 adults and 2 kids. Used 2% milk because that is what I had on hand, will make again with buttermilk. Thanks for sharing.
