  1. These are the best pancakes I've ever made. I had some buttermilk to use up so I gave this recipe a shot and I'm so glad I did. Very tasty and fluffy. Thanks Ev, this one's a keeper!
  2. My family and I enjoyed these pancakes. Light, fluffy texture and good homemade flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
  3. I made these for breakfast and they were really good. The pancakes were nice and thick - but still fluffy. My husband said that he could sit at the table and eat these all day. That's a major compliment coming from him. Thanks for the recipe!
  4. Boy were these good!!! I usually use a milk recipe, but I had some buttermilk in the fridge so I gave this a try. Threw in some fresh blueberries and I was in pancake heaven. So light and fluffy. If you're looking for thin crepe-like cakes, you must look elsewhere. Thanks so much for sharing this awsome recipe!!!!
  5. These pancakes were AWESOME !! Quite possibly the best I've ever eaten, and definitely the best I've ever made at home! They are light and fluffy, tender and just perfect!! I served them with my Honey Pecan Butter (recipe posted), so no syrup was necessary-thank you for my best ever homemade pancake breakfast! I'm so glad I picked this recipe !! Thank You !! Teresa

I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
