Enjoy with butter and maple syrup. The rye flour gives these pancakes a great unique flavor.

These were great! The batter is very thick, but the pancakes turned out nice and fluffy. The rye flour gave them a great flavor. My kids liked them too.

The pancakes taste great, nice texture and nuttiness from the rye. I added nearly a whole extra 1/2 cup of milk because the batter was so thick it wasn't spreading properly into pancakes in the pan.

This recipe should be called "Sugar-free Rye Pancakes". I didn't realize until halfway through making the recipe that there was no sugar in these pancakes. They need it.
