These are really good pancakes. Had them this morning, and used some of the mix last night for "State Fair Fried Oreos" off this site. Very fluffy and lightly textured, but very filling as well. I made a cream cheese spread (4 oz cream cheese, 2 packets Splenda, 1 1/2 teaspoons sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla) to go on top of these rather than just plain syrup and they held up well. I'm glad I made the whole batch, cause these will be made again. Even if it seems there are extra steps, Alton's recipes have not gone wrong yet for me. Thanks for sharing this one.
I've made these a few times now and had to change a few things. I found them too light, sort of chewy and thin without a whole lot of taste. I find the egg separation step unnecessary. I also add lots of butter to the pan and get it nice and hot before I put the batter on which gives them those browned crispy edges that I love. I added wheat germ and ground flax seed to the mix at the time that I'm ready to cook them. It gives more texture and flavor. Instead of separating the egg I just mix it in with the buttermilk and temper the melted butter with a little buttermilk before whisking it into the milk and eggs. Then I just combine wet and dry and they come out fine. After these changes I really enjoyed these pancakes and so did my family. I still think they lack a little flavor though and I'll need to experiment, I think a little brewers yeast might do the trick.
Wonderful money saver! Tastes great! I doubled this batch and added an extra tablespoon of sugar to it. I didn't have any fresh fruit sadly and my frozen fruit was still frozen so I left it out and they were still delicious. I substituted for the buttermilk since I was out. I used 2 cups Milk and added about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to it (you can't taste the lemon it just helps to curdle the milk after it sits for a few minutes). Thanks for posting this recipe. It's a keeper!
Really good pancakes! We didn't have any buttermilk on hand so I used 2% and they turned out fine. We make pancakes almost every Saturday morning. It is nice to have the pancake mix on hand. Now I only have to throw the mix together once a month or so.
Great pancakes. Leave it to Alton Brown to build the Atomic Pancake. Great taste, but a bit more labor intensive than plain old flour and water. (Hhmmm, that makes wallpaper paste.) This recipe is a better idea. Thanks for posting.
These were good. Good taste, light and fluffy.
Very yummy and easy to make! Made great fluffy pancakes!
I saw this recipe on Alton Brown's show, and have been making these for awhile. They're the only way I make pancakes now! 5 stars frome me because they're light, fluffy, and as my husband says..."They're even better than IHOP!!"
We liked these a lot. The egg whites do make a difference. They were light and not overly sweet. I added pecans and maple syrup which was absolutely wonderful. Excellent pancakes! Thanks for postng. This recipe goes into my permanent files.
