    These pancakes were delicious and fluffy. I made a double batch to serve with ice-cream and maple syrup. I would say the yield is about right! Thanks.

    Fluffy is right, enjoyed these for breakfast and added chocolate chips for the kids. Even topped with whip cream for the kids. Thanks for posting

    8-15-2007 DH came in from a long hard day of working and said "I could eat pancakes." He really doesn't like them, and eats them only a couple of times a year. I knew we didn't have any pancake mix, so I got online and searched for an easy, fluffy pancake to make. I knew that by separating the eggs and beating the whites stiff, they would be light! So this is the recipe I chose. The results were perfect. ABSOLUTELY perfect! This is my new "from scratch" pancake recipe! I might try it with buttermilk, or maybe with part whole wheat flour if I want to make it healthier someday, but this it the one from now on! Thanks so much for posting!!!!! UPDATE: I made these with 1/2 white whole wheat flour and 1/2 all purpose flour, skim fat free milk, and Promise fat free butter spread. They were as wonderful as the original!
