Prior to making these into gifts, I decided to test the recipe myself, and I'm glad I did. As other reviewers mentioned, the batter was extremely thick. I did however, try making a pancake before altering the original recipe to give the recipe the beneift of the doubt. It wasn't to my liking so I added approximately 1/4 cup of additional milk to the remaining batter. I made another pancake and decided to add a little vanilla, approximately 1/2 teaspoon. As others have mentioned, limiting the dry ingredients to 1 /4 cup to 1 cup milk would probably be the appropriate ratios for pancake batter. This would have been a 5* recipe if the dry/wet ratios were accurate. Otherwise, great tasting pancake with maple syrup. My 4 year old came into the kitchen and asked if we were having cinnamon rolls. They smelled delicious while cooking. One more note: Why would you layer everything if you only use part of the mix to make batter? You force your gift recipient to use it all or mix it up themselves and put the remaining back in the jar. I am not layering this recipe and mixing it up before packaging it. Sure, it is probably prettier by layering but just not practical with this recipe unless you plan to use the whole jar at once.
