I am very picky when it comes to my pancakes. I like them light and not heavy for the morning meal. These pancakes are wonderfully delicious. Slightly sweet and a hint of vanilla makes you think you were touched by an angel. I actually eat these plain, nothing on them at all... but put some eggs and a strip of turkey bacon and roll it up, you have breakfast on the go!

How To Make light as air pancakes for two

    Using a 1/3 measuring cup as your guide, forming 5 inch circles, pour mixture of 2-4 cakes in the skillet. When edges appear to harden (min or two) and you see bubbles in the cakes, flip pancakes over. They should be golden brown. Cook pancakes on the other side for the same amount of time, a min or two, until golden brown. Serve warm, with your favorite toppings, dust with powdered sugar or make a breakfast roll up.
