We thoroughly enjoyed these pancakes. Reading the previous comments about the mixture being on the thin side, I excluded the milk. Next time, though, I would add a bit of salt. I cut the recipe in half and got 10 small pancakes....perfect for 4 adults and 2 small children. I would do this one again

I was looking for a new way to use my sour dough starter and decided to try these. I did have to work with them for a while to get the right cooking temp, but they were good and we really did enjoy them. This is a great recipe when you have a crowd you want to feed. It does make up quite a pile of pancakes.
