I make the Cinn-A-Stack pancakes this morning. It was my first successful attempt at buttermilk pancakes. I had given up long ago...


Absolutely wonderful, and I will be serving these at every family brunch forever after.


In order to make them stick-to-the-ribs for my working men, I swapped out 1/2 cup white flour for whole wheat.


In order to be frugal and use every scrap, I whipped the 1 egg white until frothy and folded it into the batter. Great Job Joshua, keep 'em coming!
