This recipe turned out really well, much nicer than other pancakes I have had before. Other ideas for toppings could be nutella, lemon juice, or ice cream.

Old Fashioned Breakfast Pancakes Review by B. Sams on September 2nd, 2012:

Made the recipe. It didn't turn out well at all. Followed it to the letter and ended up with a doughy lump. Had to keep adding milk to thin out and then they didn't taste all that great either. I guess pancakes aren't meant for me to make by scratch.

The best pancake recipe that I've found. I'd recommend leaving the salt out or add less though.
