Our mom always made our birthday’s special growing up. We would wake up and come downstairs to a very decorated kitchen and living room with a delicious breakfast. It was always so much fun! We have a few birthdays coming up in our family and these are definitely on the menu!

    This is a great recipe! We are huge pancake lovers in my house with 3 kids, in addition, we have included buttermilk pancakes in our women?s dieting group and have achieved excellent weight loss. The secret is in the buttermilk
  2. I tried making these using different temps and milk measurements but they burn before they cook through. I've been making pancakes for years and never had his problem. Bummed because I made them for my sons birthday this morning. Not sure why they didn't turn out. >:-[
  3. These were so good! I used white cake mix and cheap pancake mix. The trick to not burning them is keeping the temp around 250, however, this does increase the cooking time. I didn't use the glaze, just syrup - I normally use Nutella on my pancakes but not good on these pancakes. These are definately in our breakfast routine!
