Absolute deliciousness on a plate! We skipped lunch after church to come home and make these before the rains fell. It was worth the price! These are some of the best pancakes I've ever had! The only changes I made to the recipe were to skip the nuts (can't have them!) and I used fresh pineapple because we always have some on hand. The best size for this is no more than 4 inches in diameter. The crème Anglaise was the divine accompaniment, but I could eat these just plain with the diced fruit or maybe dusted with some powdered sugar! Thanks so much for posting this marvelous recipe - if I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. Made for My Three Chefs 2013.
