Like most people I love this recipe. The only thing that I can guess about people who didn't like it is that they didn't use buttermilk or soured milk. The baking soda / baking powder ratio used in this recipe must have a acid component to react with and make the bubbles.
These pancakes tasted so bland. They were nothing like IHOP's pancakes. I will stick with bisquick's pancakes.
Been looking for years for the ultimate pancake recipe to match the pancakes eaten in IHOPS on holidays. This one exceeds it! Thank you.

I followed the direction exactly. The taste was less pleasant than box buttermilk pancakes. On to the next one!

Have been following this recipe for years now, and I am known in the family as "the" pancake cook. I do use the buttermilk, and it truly is a fantastic breakfast. If you like pancakes this IS the recipe.

I've only made pancakes from a box. With this being my first time making them from scratch I was excited. But, I really can't tell the difference. Certainly doesn't taste like IHOP and I even bought the IHOP butter pecan syrup for this.
Perfection!!!! My family and I loved them. Permanent addition to my receipe box.

Got it Right The first time!! They cooked perfectly. For those who know how to follow a recipe and have cooked pancakes should not have any problem at all...👍👍
Omg these are the best pancakes I've ever made and they are way better than 90% of the pancakes you can buy. I didn't have buttermilk so I used regular milk and added a spoonful of sour cream. I added a little vanilla extract, cinnamon, and used brown and powdered sugar. I cooked them in coconut oil. I cut up bananas sprinkled cinnamon and brown sugar on top and caramelized them on the stove. I put that on top of the pancakes and kept some Nutella near by just in case.

I just made these for my niece and myself, and I thought they were great! I didn't have buttermilk, so I substituted with 3/4 cup of sour cream mixed with 1/4 cup of water, then just 1/4 cup of 2%. Worked just fine! I'll be saving this recipe to my Pinterest.
