I make pancakes maybe once a year, so they have to be from scratch. I used your great recipe and as promised the cakes were light and fluffy and mixed up in a jiffy. I didn't have buttermilk on hand so I made my own using lemon juice in milk and used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup white flour. I also used a thinly sliced banana and pecans in DH's batch cuz he was jonesing for banana nut pancakes. Thanks for a great breakfast!!
