I certainly understand why your children love these pancakes Ri. They are delicious, have great flavor and a lovely texture. I really enjoyed your recipe. I garnished it with strawberry butter and fresh strawberries for a wonderful breakfast. Thank you so much for sharing. made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.

I usually add about a 1/2 tsp or so of almond extract. After they're cooked I sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar, roll them up, and serve them with canned peaches over them. My family loves this recipe.
