FINALLY!! I've been looking for this recipe! I mixed the dry ingredients seperately from the wet, stirred in the wet ingredients until just mixed so the pancakes wouldn't be tough. Yes, use a hot greased griddle. If you've had a problem with these being flat you may want to replace your soda and baking powder with a fresher supply. These were nice and puffy and tender and YUMMY!! Thanks for submitting your recipe Amber!!

These are my family's favorite pancakes! The cream of wheat gives them the best flavor and texture. I don't usually like pancakes, but I LOVE these! I've used the 2 1/2 minute cooking time cream of wheat and it works great too.
