I put the recipe together as written and the batter was extremely runny! I added about a third cup flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder and it was a bit better. The finished pancakes were pretty standard.

The batter was very very runny I ended up added a 1/4 cup of flour to them. Also they are not as fluffy as I wanted... maybe my idea of fluffy is different. I am on the search for the best pancake recipe this is not the one,

Probably the worst pancakes I've ever had. These were thin, even after adding more flour. They were rubbery and had no flavor. Terrible. I don't know how other people could possibly rave about them.

Great recipe! So glad you shared. The batter was perfect, poured wonderfully onto the griddle and the flavor/fluffiness was impressive. We now have a "family" pancake recipe thanks to you! We mix in frozen blueberries for fun too!

The batter was reeally thin. I added a some flour like others had suggested, which thickened the batter up a bit, but the pancakes still turned out super thin. I didn't like the texture either.. they were rubbery/eggy and not close to being fluffy like I had hoped. The flavour was kind of lacking, but I added some blueberries and chocolate chips to some of them to give them a bit of oomph.

Saw the reviews saying the batter was too thin. Never made these but, as pancake recipes go these call for a lot of liquid in proportion to flour and then oil and egg as well. You do have to guess on the amount of liquid to an extent because flour varies widely in moisture content. Routinely, I add the fat and eggs called for and then add about two thirds of the milk and stir and see what the consistency is like. Some people like pancakes thicker than others.Takes practice. Also this is a very plain, basic recipe so if you like, experiment with adding a little fruit, spices, vanilla, ect. Also double check your baking powder because it loses its rising ability after a while. You can check online to see how to do this. Even if you just bought it, it may have been at the store for a while. It helps to date the package when you open it. Hope this info helps.

This is my go to pancake recipe. I always add a touch of vanilla.

I did the recipe as instructed. The batter came out real runny and tasted almost bland. Not great at all. I added a little bit of melted butter and some vanilla extract and it still tasted funny. The finished pancake didn't taste any better and tasted worse than Bisquic or Pioneer mixes. I think I'll stick to the other fluffy pancake recipe I found on this site.
