"Say goodbye to Aunt Jemima! Once you taste these homemade pancakes, I think you'll agree they're much better than the boxed kind! Add a bit of vanilla or fruit (frozen blueberries work well) to make them extra special. If you want, mix up the dry ingredients in advance and give it away as a gift (with instructions on how to finish making the pancakes) or just store it for even quicker pancakes on Sunday mornings."

"Aunt Jemima move over.....these are so easy why buy a mix? They taste great and have a very nice texture! I like the fact that there is not alot of sugar in these. I added a drop of vanilla to the batter and the kids licked their plates clean! Me too! Easy and good...it's all here!"
"I made these last night so we could have them for breakfast this morning, they didn't make it. I added 1/2 cup of extra flour because I had them running all over my skillet. I like a thicker pancake. The taste was so much better than any box version I have ever bought. I think I got about 15 pancakes out of the mix. Thank you so much Sackville Girl, you have saved me money by making my own. We loved them!!"
"I mixed this up for dinner on Pancake Tuesday - along with Canadian maple syrup and crisp bacon (try it.....you'll like it). I added 1/2 tsp vanilla & the additional 1/4 cup milk (I prefer thinner pancakes) and then my DH took over. He asked me if I had bought a new brand of pancake mix & of course I asked him why. His response was "these pancakes are fluffing up". Get out of town Aunt Jemima!!!!"
"Absolutely wonderful breakfast!! A very forgiving recipe--I had no baking soda, so I quadrupled the baking powder (4 tsp total)--also, after adding only 1 cup of milk, I found the consistency to be where we like it, so I stopped at the 1 cup mark, and boy, these pancakes were perfect--light, fluffy, and absolutely DELICIOUS!!! (I did add about 1/4 tsp of vanilla, but that was just cause of personal preference)--like so many others have said, the box mixes are going in the garbage..this is the best!! (Finally got a home cooked pancake to taste like the ones we get in the resturaunts) thank you so much for posting this!!! TERESA"
"Great recipe! I added some cranberries! (fresh cranberries, about a cup, couple of tablespoons of sugar, dash of vanilla. Micro about a minute, stir and then another 1 minute or 2 then mix & mash leaving some whole.) Just sprinkle a spoonful on the pancake before flipping. YUM!"
"Perfect Recipe! I love how BIG and FLUFFY these pancakes are. We were able to get about 10 Average Pancakes out of this recipe."
"i didnt have any baking powder or baking soda so i just left them out.... i made the best crepes ever haha"
"I make these all the time for my 4 year old and 2 year old. One thing they love is a banana/pb roll up with the leftover cakes. I just put them in the fridge until they get cold and then spread pb on them and then wrap it around a banana. Great recipe!!"
"Definitely no need for packet mixes with this recipe here: Minor changes: vanilla sugar instead of ordinary sugar, some buttermilk instead of all milk (and the lesser amount since we like them thick) , and 1/2 the salt. I also mixed the eggs and oil really well together before adding to the mix because I don't like to risk running into bits of egg in the pancake. Very nice, SG."
"I made these this morning for breakfast. I am only giving this recipe 4 stars because I thought they had a little too much of an eggy taste. I WILL be making these again, though. Next time I am going to increase the dry mix, not add as much milk and maybe only use one egg. I think that I will also take the suggestion of another review and add a little vanilla. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It really was one of the best pancakes I've had in a long time. Even if it was a little too "eggy" for my preference, I know that I can alter that for next time!"
"All I can say is wow! This recipe was wonderful! I substituted 2 T of melted butter instead of oil and added 1 T of vanilla and 1 T of cinnamon. This created a perfect balance of flavors that wasn't too over powering. This amount of batter made 12 average sized cakes. If I could give 10 stars I would!"
"Very easy to premix. I added powdered milk and then wrote on the jar the wet ingredients"
"I am going to try these as soon as Bob wakes up, since I didn't make him a cake or pie!!!! lol<br/>So they better be good to get me out of the dog house! lol"
"The mix was easy to make but the pancakes were not very favorable. I would rather buy the pancake mix since the kids like that better."
"I totally loved this!! they were so fluffy and tasty! I added is 1/4 cup of extra milk in and I found it helped it a lot! Amazing recipe!!"
"As a self proclaimed 'non-baker' I've always avoided pancakes, as much as I love them. This recipe is so easy and incredibly yummy every time!!! I mix everything into a bowl, no separate steps, and have my picky son asking for more :-) Also, they heat up nicely so I've started saving leftovers for when I want a quick snack."
"This recipe is amazing! I made them this morning and my family loved them! I even added some pineapple and it was perfect. They held together wonderfully (I used fresh pineapple) and not many mixes can do that!"
"I must agree, this recipe has indeed been give Aunt Jemima a run for her money. Instead of using all that milk i used 1 cup of it and it turned out great!! Thank you for posting this recipe Sackville, job well done!"
