Fluffy pancakes that melt in your mouth. Separating the eggs and folding the whipped whites into the batter, nothing is better. Grills up to a golden brown.

I started reading the reviews while beating the egg whites and I nearly decided to throw the batter out. Sure glad I didn't! I added a tablespoon of sugar to the white's and a dash of salt and the whole family loved them! And they DID turn out nice and fluffy. Those whose didn't must have been an operator error? Ain't always the recipe sometimes it's the cook! Amen? Read More

Although these are very light and fluffy as other reviews have said they are very very eggy!! If I were to re-name this I would call it French Toast Pancakes because that is exactly what it tastes like!! I added 3 tspn. white sugar and 1 tspn. of vanilla. I also added fresh blueberries to half the batter and no matter what they still tastes too eggy--but I am sure my husband will eat them he is like Mikey and will eat anything!! Read More

The best pancakes I have ever tasted. Seriously. I have eaten a lot of pancakes at home and at the best diners but never so light and delicious. Plus you don't get the after-brunch-stomach-blues because they're not heavy at all. I agree with other reviewers about adding a tablespoon of sugar but with a sweet topping adding more is unecessary. About the "too much egg" issue I assume that some other reviewers didn't beat the egg whites enough. You will know when they are stiff enough when you can turn the bowl upside down and they don't fall down. One really needs an electric beater to make the egg whites stiff or else you'll lose your arm. It is of course easy to remove one egg yolk if it floats your boat better. They even taste good after a few hours while most pancakes turn inedible. Read More

I enjoyed making this recipe. The pancakes were extremly fluffy and had great colour. The only problem is that, using 3 egg yolks made the recipe quite "eggy." I could taste the egg yolks in the pancakes. I would suggest reducing the number of egg yolks to 1 or 2 and using 3 egg whites to maintain the fluffiness of the pancakes. Read More

really (x 100) good recipe will be normal breakfast in my house. Big hit with the kids! just leave one egg out and isn't eggy at all. Make batter overnight and let it set. Makes it 100% better! Thank you! Read More

I thought this recipe was delightful. I made into more of a dessert than breakfast. I added 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/8 cup sugar to the batter. I also added 1/8 cup sugar to the egg whites while beating. They really cooked up light and fluffy. I then topped off the pancakes with blueberry syrup and RediWhip whipped cream. Yummy!!! Thanks very much for this recipe. Read More

My husband and I LOVED this recipe! It is true that the recipe does have a slightly 'eggy' taste but it is very tasty. The results are light and fluffy... and very yummy. I tried saving some batter to use a little later but the whites seperated. I mixed it up again but the pancakes were very thin and not as tasty as the fresh batch. Read More

This is a wonderful recipe!! I use it all of the time now! Very fluffy as long as you are careful to follow the directions and fold the batter. I've often added chocolate chips or apple to the batter and it always turns out yummy! Read More

I took the advice from the other reviewers and cut back to one egg yolk. I also decided to use my regular boxed all purpose mix. The pancakes came out very fluffy and the end result was yummy. Thanks! Read More
