Yuk. If perkins served me these pancakes, I'd demand a refund. I used Jiffy mix and followed the recipe to a 'T'. They were dry and crumbly and tasted like #%#*&^. Better to buy a Betty Crocker cookbook and make them from scratch!

This tasted horrible. I followed it to the T also and it was tough, dry & tasteless. Not like any Perkins pancakes I've ever tasted either. But the kids liked it and that's all that matters.

These pancakes didnt taste anything like Perkins pancakes, and I followed the recipe exact. They were ok, but I'm going to keep searching for something closer to duplicate Perkins recipe.
