I found a recipe here that I ended up changing so much it hardly resembled what I started out with, and my family LOVED them. I thought it would be a nice addition. These pancakes are a blend of good and not-so-good-for-you ingredients, hence the name.

  • Pour milk and vanilla extract into the well; add beaten eggs. Mix wet and dry ingredients together until smooth.

  • Grease a skillet with oil and heat over medium heat.

  • Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake into the hot skillet; cook until bottom is golden brown and there are many small pinholes in the top of the pancake, about 2 minutes. Flip pancake and continue cooking until golden brown and the middle of the pancake is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet with oil between pancakes as needed.

Flavour wise this recipe is great but the pancakes did not fluff up at all. I believe that it has to do with the amount of baking powder. When I checked other pancake recipes I have tried I found that for example one had 1 1/2 cups flour with 3 1/2 tsp. baking powder. As a result I feel that maybe 4 to 4 1/2 tsps. should be used. Will be doing again and will try this change. LEJOYROTHE Thank you for sharing this recipe. Read More

Good flavor and visually appealing. I would add a bit more baking powder next time. They're a bit denser than I was expecting. Read More

This has wonderful flavor but is a bit more dense than we're used to for pancakes. Read More
