    You will need to add almost double the amount of milk. I grabbed this recipe quickly as I just wanted ballpark idea of how much of each ingredient. Realized flour/ milk ratio is way off

    It was delicious but I think I slightly overcooked them regardless they came out phenomenally.

    Such an easy recipe to make. Turns out great every time. I didn't have blueberries today so I used seedless grapes instead. I heated them in the oven with the pancakes I had made and they were delicious.

    Out of the 4 pancake recipes (including this one) I’ve made in the last 3 weeks, this is my favorite. It’s not as dense as the other recipes I tried. I only added about 110g flour but still turned out ok (maybe that’s why it was less dense?). I did some batches with walnuts & cocoa nibs, some with chocolate chips, & some with shredded mozzarella which was the winner.

    Very standard recipe, tastes like good old fashioned basic puffy pancakes. Used 150ml of milk instead of 130ml like one of the other comments mentioned. Also dropped in a few chocolate chunks after the batter is poured into the pan.

    I didn't have caster sugar available, so I had to use granulated sugar instead. Interestingly it worked better for my pancake. But it would be helpful to know how long exactly should one rest the batter though. All in all, it was a good recipe.

    Very tasty! After reading the other reviews which said the milk was not enough I used 150ml of milk instead of 130ml as per the recipe. With these quantities of ingredients came out 4 pancakes. So...I wouldn’t say it’s for 4 people, however me and my boyfriend really enjoyed them! Definitely going to make this again!
