Wonderful pancakes! I added the extra water which produced a light pancake but still with enough substance that we like so well. Topped with a light whipping cream and you have a wonderful treat. A real winner, Nic.
Quick and easy to put together. Cooked these in a small amount of butter and drizzled with maple syrup. I did need to use a little more water than the recipe called for. Really liked the nutty crunch with raisins.
Sorry!! these pancakes were ok, but a little on the heavy side. The instructions were good except that it says nothing about the tablespoon of melted butter listed in the ingredients. So I added it to the batter at the end. The taste was good, I served them with butter, a shake of splenda and a good squeeze of lemon over, thanks for sharing and good luck in the contest.
