These pancakes were absolutely amazing. They were by far the best pancakes I have ever made. They were light, fluffy and extremely moist. Thank you for this recipe!

I vegan-ed this up by replacing the milk with watered down Soya yoghurt and replacing the egg with mashed banana (or tablespoon of ground Chai seeds with 3 tbsp warm water) I did use a tablespoon of baking powder and I have to say they turned out great

Surely this should include a tsp of baking powder and not a tbsp! Also less milk is needed - otherwise pretty good.

Took my chances with a medium egg as I didn't have any large. Worked out fine, and made some yummy thick pancakes. Delicious with some maple syrup. Love the little kick of cinnamon.

Nice easy recipe! First time of making them! They were lovely with an egg on top. Would really go well with sweet treats as they are not sickly. Very impressed!

Like the other person said surely you must have meant teaspoons not tablespoons of baking powder. My granddaughter described it as tasting "chemically". Are you sure this is correct?

The recipe will serve about three people - I found that it was too much for two people. I prefer it with an extra tbsp sugar and without the cinnamon - though that's very much personal preference!

These pancakes freeze well. Cook up a batch as normal, then allow to cool. Spread on a baking sheet lined with baking paper, making sure the pancakes don't touch. Give them at least 6 hours to freeze solid. I put mine in a freezer bag sealed with a clip once ready. They can be heated in the microwave for 1-2 mins (1 min 30 on 800w).
