      Wow, just wow. I'm not a big pancake person, but I could have eaten 100 of these. Sweet, light and fluffy, they don't need any syrup or even butter on them (I put homemade strawberry syrup on my first plate and it seemed like blasphemy). I thought the batter was a little thick after I put my first three on the griddle, so I thinned it with more milk to avoid the typical pancake brick that usually happens, but when I took those 1/2 thick pancakes off and tasted, they still were perfect and fluffy inside (the thin ones were also excellent). The only things I changed was using soymilk and vegan sour cream due to a milk allergy. Thanks so much Free Spirit, I will never complain again when my family wants pancakes for dinner!

      Wow. I'm shocked that I haven't rated this yet! This has been my go-to pancake recipe for two years. How good is it? If I don't have sour cream, I don't make pancakes! They're so good that I sometimes fill myself up by munching on them plain while they're coming. They're by far the best pancakes I've ever had.

      We really enjoyed the texture of these. They are very moist and fluffy. I separated the egg and beat the white until they were stiff to make an even fluffier pancake. Contrary to other reviewers, I wish my pancake was a little thicker. I think the batter could also use a little more flavor --- more vanilla or cinnamon perhaps? I did use 1% and fat-free sour cream, so this may have made the difference. This was still a very nice pancake, which has been added to my recipe box. Thanks!
