Fantastic! I used unsalted butter instead of oil, and the result was still delicious. I didn't really get the instructions on how to beat the eggs, but I guess I guessed right since it still turned out fine.
It is fun to make and very tasty and delicious. I would recommend making this for breakfast, but when I made this it took over an hour to make.
The pancakes them selves didn't taste too bad. However, they were a nightmare to cook. They wouldn't thin out, they tore and were just plain difficult to work with. We ended up serving then just as flat puffy pancakes with fresh cut strawberries and hot currant jelly.
