basic recipe

"It was generally my practice to just google "pancakes" whenever I wanted to make pancakes; I never had an allegiance to any particular pancake recipe. Now I come directly to this one. This recipe makes *excellent* pancakes.

They are very vanilla-y, which my family and I love. The only thing I change is to add a splash more vanilla than the recipe calls for.

The batter is thicker than other recipes I've tried-so don't think you're doing something wrong if you get a slightly thicker batter.

Go make these!"
