    AmyZoe's Note:

    This makes a delicious light and fluffy pancake--it's like going out for pancake breakfast but better because it's in the comfort of your own home. The best part of this recipe are the many possible variations--wholewheat, buckwheat, cornmeal, bran, and fruit options. Recipe courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook 2010.

      I seem to be getting my fill of buttermilk pancakes this month, but I do enjoy trying new recipes for 'em & think yours is right up there with the best! Followed your recipe right on down (but didn't add any fruit), & was thoroughly satisfied with these thick & substantial 'cakes! With a bit of honey butter & a light corn syrup, I was happy! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

      Wonderful pancakes. They were probably a bit too thick. I though of adding milk just at the end so next time I do them, I'm going to add more milk at first ;) Thanks AmyZoe :) Made for New Kids on the Block tag game
