And when I say best I mean best! This recipe goes back years and the name of the recipe says it all! -- throw in some fresh blueberries -- yield is only estimated :)

I need to share this... my wife developed an allergy to eggs over the course of one of her pregnancies and as such has not eaten a pancake in years (that she liked). Well I came across an egg substitute and used it with this recipe... y'all... these were phenomenal. They were so fluffy and airy... PERFECT. I cooked mine in a cast iron pan with melted butter. to die for. My wife just sank in a food-gasm. I only put in 2tbsp sugar because I had no sour cream... I also forgot the vanilla... and they were still wonderful... I added a pinch extra of baking powder and let the batter sit for about 5 to 7 minutes... these truly were AMAZING pancakes. My kids were like DAD! These are the pancakes we've ever had! so Kudos to you! These were great!
