I was in a hurry to make dinner this night, that's why there aren't any pictures of the batter.

VerdictA novel way to make pancakes.
We all liked this and I would totally make it again since I think it's easier than making regular pancakes. The only thing I would do differently is to leave out the baking spice, it was unwelcome. Usually it's great in baked goods, but as I discovered, it seems that pancakes are supposed to be plain flavored and not jazzed up.
To me it tasted like there was a lot of baking powder in it, but it might be because I was looking for it. Not sure what's going on with that, but I've noticed it in other recipes as well. Probably some weird obsession I've got.
I would like to make this again in one of our family's favorite pancake variations, banana pancakes. I think to do that I would reduce the milk to 1/2 cup and add at least one frozen over-ripe banana, if not two.
