I made as directed and was pleased with the results; they were plenty sweet enough for us - maybe even a little to much after adding warm maple syrup. Went together easy, with good directions. Puffed up nice and had a soft texture with a good sourdough flavor.

These pancakes were not sweet at all and had a bland flavor, even after I added blueberries and vanilla. This was not my favorite sourdough recipe.

I need to rate this recipe because I keep losing it. It has become my go-to recipe for sourdough pancakes. I don't know what 12 people you are serving but I make it for the two of us and we have it for two meals.
