    Great pancakes!!! I really liked that there wasn't any added oil/butter to the actual batter, just in the pan for cooking. Very quick and easy to make, so you have breakfast on the table in no time. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for "Best of 2012" Tag Game.

    These made a delicious breakfast this morning. They are definitely in the running for new 'go-to' Sunday morning breakfast! They were very fluffy and enjoyable and I'm glad I tried them. Thanks for sharing CJAY!

    Yum, yum, yum! We are VERY particular about our pancakes around here so I was a little bit nervous about making something different, but these went over like...well...hotcakes! I made a double recipe but kept the sugar at 1/4 c and I am glad; we don't like a lot of sugar in general and 1/2 c would have been waaayyy sweet for us. I also made self-rising flour with spelt and white wheat flours and the texture of the cakes still came out light and fluffy. My kids really went bananas over these; DS ate 8 of them, I think. We all agreed that they are best spread with strawberry jam, which is also a departure from our "pancakes and syrup" norm. Thanks for posting, I think we'll revisit these little gems often! Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.

    Delicious pikelets CJAY. I enjoyed these pancakes very much. They were quick and easy to make, with great flavor. They rose beautifully and had a lovely texture. I garnished them with orange honey cinnamon butter soooo good. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will use again. Made for The Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Great Britian
