I also needed more flour than called for. Delicious recipe!
Thank you for this delicious recipe, a little hardwork than I'm used to but perfect to get me used to cooking again! My 6 year old son and myself, said they are just like the kind I get in PA when visiting my family where I grew up! Thanks.
Wonderful! These pancakes tasted exactly like the ones I would order every Saturday at my favorite restaurant in Mannheim, Germany. I used a bit less onion and slightly more flour. Very good...even my boyfriend liked them (and I was competing with his mother's latkes!).
