  2. Melt margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour the batter into the pan, and cook until it starts to brown on the bottom. Then, chop it up with a spatula, and continue cooking until it is no longer doughy.

I was too curious not to try this. I would describe this as more of a thick crepe (in taste and texture). I did not have any problems with this being doughy, just take your time and don't scramble it, just slowly section it into pieces as each part starts to set up. If you do not get in a rush, it will turn out just fine. We enjoyed this with powdered sugar and "homemade pancake syrup" from this site. Thanks for sharing this unusual breakfast recipe.

I made these twice. First time, followed recipe and they came out heavy, doughy, and bland. Next time, I added 2 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp sugar, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Much better and I would definitely recommend the baking powder. All in all, a recipe for kids.

This is a really simple and yummy recipe. I especially like it because it's not as messy as regular pancakes for my son. Some said it's bland, but so are most regular pancakes which makes it perfect for a variety of toppings. Also some people said it was doughy. It is a bit more dense then pancakes because of the eggs, but if you make sure to fully cook it till it starts to slightly brown, it should be firm vs. doughy. It's almost crepe like in flavor. My husband calls it pancake scramble.

This was different. I don't know how else to explain it other than that. I made it for my 10month old daughter, and she wasn't crazy about it. I did not like it at all. My fiance said it was all right, probably not something I'll make again.

My kids seemed to like it, but I couldn't get it to come out right. It stayed really doughy.

Not much falvor. We'll probably eat this again, but add more salt and margarine.
