    I was looking for a recipe to use my leftover whey after making yogurt cheese. This was wonderful, I used the whey in place of the buttermilk. They were light and had a great flavor and texture. (And no waste)

    I've never had a lot of luck with pancakes, but these were just wonderful-- nothing fancy, but a great basic pancake. I added vinegar to soy milk to substitute for the buttermilk, which worked out fine. Served with local maple syrup and an egg on top!

    These pancakes are light, fluffy and delicious. I used whole milk instead of butter milk and they were still great. My go-to pancake recipe from now on!

    The recipe is not "light" folks, it's the serving size! One 4-inch pancake. They are delicious and fluffy, oh so good, but how do you eat just one?

    I use this recipe every time I decide to make pancakes from scratch. It's easy and this last time, I grated some semisweet chocolate into the batter for a little bit of extra flavor.

    Yummy. I will definitely make this recipe again. I used whole wheat pastry flour and egg substitute and sprinkled with frozen huckleberries after pouring them into the pan. They were the lightest, fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever made. I agree with other reviewers that 1 pancake is not enough, but I usually allow myself about 300 calories for breakfast. That is 3 pancakes and is a perfect serving for me.

    I added the zest of one lemon and fresh blueberries. Very good! I look forward to playing with the recipe again.

    These pancakes are pretty good coming from someone who doesn't like most pancakes! There very moist and fluffy which is always a bonus! I usually mix in some chocolate chips or strawberries to add extra flavor!

    This recipe is definitely a keeper. I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of white flour and made waffles. They were GREAT! Best recipe that I have found for homemade pancakes or waffles. Delicious! Very Satisfied!! Two Thumbs Up!!! ((^_^))

    Hands down, this IS the best buttermilk pancake recipe. I have been making these for years. I always double the recipe.

    I thought this recipe was good. I usually use a pancake mix to make pancakes, but I had some buttermilk I was trying to use so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. It came together pretty quickly, and I did like the texture, but I didn't think it was the fluffiest pancake ever. To those who commented that this is not a "light" pancake, I would like to point out that the fat-free pancake mix that I usually use to make pancakes has double the calories, for the same size pancake. This recipe has only 1 teaspoon of oil and 1 egg for 9 pancakes, which is a lot less than other recipes.

    I thought these were amazing and will be making them on weekends!

    I added 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and 2 tablespoons Splenda to the dry mixture instead of sugar. Also added a slivered Granny Smith apple and 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, and 1 tablespoon of Key Lime juice to liquid ingredients. I also used Canola oil instead of vegetable. Delicious!

    Wow, what a delicious pancake recipe, and as pancakes go, not at all bad for you. We dropped fresh blueberries into the batter and ate them plain - no butter, no syrup, just delicious blueberriness..

    Excellent! These are super fluffy! I agree with another reviewer: these are not nearly as bad for you (from a caloric standpoint) as some others. Try them if you can. Super yummy!

    There is no buttermilk in Paris. Alas I had to substitute crème fraîche of which there is always plenty! I know I could have used yogurt or added lemon to regular milk but crème fraîche made these pancakes exquisite treats! We will walk many miles to compensate for the extra calories. Even with all the marvelous pastry treats in Paris my husband begs for these pancakes on a Sunday morning. A little fresh grated nutmeg makes a nice addition to the recipe too.

    I love these pancakes! I make them whenever I have leftover buttermilk from another recipe. I usually add blueberries or top them with strawberries or both. They are quick to whip together and turn out great every time.

    I had purchased some buttermilk I needed to use before it went bad and came across this recipe... SUPERB!!! Very easy to make and not too much time required for a weekday morning rushing kids, hubby & self out the door. They were very light and fluffy. Will definitely be my go-to recipe for pancakes from now on... and I'm going to try some of the suggested add-ons/ substitutions, too!
