I used to make these frequently but had lost my recipe. They always received "rave" notices. I'm so glad to have the recipe again! Read More

Nothing like an elephant ear. It's more like a cookie. I followed the recipe exactly and it looked nothing like the picture. It was more like a cookie. Wish I would have read the reviews first. Read More

this recipe confused me it calls for 8 Tlbs. butter in ing. list but only 1/4 cup in directions so i combined this recipe with another to make the perfect elephant ears. increased flour to 2 cups and used 1/2 cup buttermilk. Read More

yeah these weren't really good. See in Canada these are called BEAVER TAILS and elephant ears just don't have the same great taste that beaver tails do... Not the best but still have a good taste. Thanks anyway! Read More

I followed this recipe exactly except that i had to use extra flour on the board to get it to be able to be handled. I thought they were fantastic and delicious though I rolled the dough and cut into four pieces then flattened them and they are a great alternative for cinnamon rolls! Great recipe...would also be great dipped in some chocolate.....yum! Read More

I gave this recipe only 2 stars because it was actually very thick pancake batter. I followed the recipe exactly and it was nothing like elephant ears. Then I thinned the remaining batter and it made excellent pancakes. If this recipe had been under pancakes I would have given it 4 or 5 stars. If you're going to make pancakes don't forget to add about 3/4 cup of milk rather than 1/3 cup. Read More

This was very good once it was done but I found I had to add extra flour because it looked like thick pancake mix once I added the butter and milk. Read More
