The addition of the egg whites must make these so fluffy...we love to add fresh fruit after we get them on the griddle..never use box mixes again! This came from an Amish cookbook..

Best pancakes ever ! They were fluffy and "light" which is what I like. The whipped egg whites is the trick for light pancakes and waffles.

Very good pancakes. They were fluffy with great taste. I still brushed the pan with oil. Thanks grandma2969 :) Made for Alphabet tag game

These are GREAT, fluffy and tender and really easy to make. We added fresh rasberries and whipcream for a truly decadent breakfast my family loved. So much better than any box mix. The only problem I had is that at first the batter came out very thin & watery, but I added more flour until it seemed about right and then they where perfect. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. I'll be making this again whenever I want rave reviews from the whole family.
