"These are truly world famous. I have made them for guests from England and the Netherlands as well as from Nova Scotia. I remember the first time I ever made them. I was a fairly newly wed when my husband asked me for pancakes. I very sweetly replied, " I can't make pancakes, I don't have any pancake mix." To which my husband answered, "Don't you have a cook book?" Thus begun my obsession of cooking things from scratch. ( I was 14 when I learned you could make a cake from scratch)."

"These are wonderful pancakes. Try 3/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup Cream of Wheat for a wonderful variation."
"These disappeared pretty quickly. They're light, puffy, eggy, thin and more than a little crepe-like. They aren't as delicate as I normally expect crepes to be, which can be a good thing."
"I just made this and it was soooo delicious and sooo easy.. I will never buy the mix again!"
"Oh wow. I used this recipe just because I didnt want to search for my normal recipe for pancakes. What a nice surprise! These were soooo good. Not as "airy" as normal pancakes are. They made a perfect circle every time. Almost tasted a little like hard custard or something... hard to explain really. I recomend everyone to make these. I topped mine with powdered sugar and my husband (who does wierd things to his food) topped his with icecream and berries. Excellent recipe. I cant wait to try them with butter milk, I used regular 2%. Thank you!"
"Wonderful pancakes that are fluffy, light and puff up beautifully. I tried your suggestion of using buttermilk and loved these!"
"This is a wonderful recipe, my husband loves them, he is on a diet to lose weight, and these are perfect, low calories,low fat,high protien and especially low CARBS. Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe.. I have been searching for one like this!"
"I made these this morning. They were the best pancakes I have ever made and so simple. The family loved them!"
"I can't believe how good these were for the small list of ingredients! I've made pancakes with a whole heap of ingredients that didnâ€™t come close to tasting as good as these did. And they cooked perfectly too. This one will replace all other pancake recipes. I used buttermilk and doubled the recipe because we like peanut butter and jelly pancake sandwiches. Absolutely delicious, thanks!"
"These were wonderful pancakes, big, thick, light and fluffy. Very very satisfying. My dh & I enjoyed them very much. I served them with recipe #234113, they were excellant together. Thanks so much for sharing, into my keeper box this goes."
"Wow, what great pancakes! You can add South Korea to the list, I'm an English teacher over here, and I will definitely be sharing this recipe with my friends! I think I'll add some banana and chocolate syrup, they are nice and thick to soak up the chocolate and hold the bananas."
"these were gone very quickly in my house. Very much like crepes and a little thicker than crepes. Too back that one reviewer Chef#219653 just seems to bad mouth recipes and doesn't upload her own for others to try and comment on"
"Great recipe - DH says no more Bisquick! Will be making these again!!!"
