First time for me to make pancakes from scratch.....I have always taken the "Aunt Jemima" route when making pancakes. These pancakes were very good. The only place I deviated from the recipe was in the 1/2 cup brown sugar in the batter. I just thought it would be too sweet for me with the syrup and all. I used only 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and it was enough for me.
