    I totally loved the pancakes! I replaced the buttermilk with soymilkand used baking powder instead of baking soda. I also used a 1/2 cup of organic flour to replace the usual unbleached flour. My daughter loves the pancakes as well! She kept asking for more. Very easy to make! - 4/14/10

    This was the first time I have ever made pancakes from scratch and they were very easy to make and absolutely delicious. My only change was to add some frozen blueberries. Thanks for sharing this recipe! - 1/16/16
