We really enjoyed these thin, almost crepe-like pancakes. I did use part buttermilk and part regular milk, which might have made mine extra thin. But they were great with lots of maple syrup and then rolled up! I agree that these are best poured large into the pan, so you get a nice big pancake. Anything smaller and you are left with abstract shapes (such as the continental U.S., one of my earlier attempts!) Great pancake. Thank you!

These are delicious! Nice and light (and thin). Almost like a crepe, with the added "bite" of buttermilk. Made as written and the batter was just right for thin cakes. Served with real Canadian maple syrup.

Very nice pancake. After reading the other reviews, I decided to add 1/2 cup more flour because the batter was very very thin and added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. After mixing in the extra flour in, I let the batter sit for about 10 minutes before making the pancakes and tht helped the batter thicken up some. All in all a nice buttermilk pancake. Thanks BK
