Okay. I had some trouble with these. I followed the recipe precisely but the batter was so thin, my first pancake ran all over the pan. I added another 1/3 cup flour and tried again. Still too runny. Added another 1/3 cup and it was almost the right consistancy, but the flour taste was a little strong in the final product. Due to the thinness, the onions kind of clumped together in the center of the pancake, which wasn't terribly pleasing. All in all, the flavor was alright- these remind me very much of Bergy's Okonomi Yaki (#38400 ), which I love, but a little blander. I also think this makes closer to 8 servings rather than 4, especially if served as a side. Thanks for posting, though.
