These pancakes are perfect!! Usually when I look for recipes on this site, I read a few of the 'lowest' ratings, then I go to the 'most helpful'. At the time I write this, the reviews that rate this poorly all say that they weren't fluffy, were sour, and were mushy. When I go to the most helpful section, I see the 'most helpful' say don't change a thing and follow the recipe as written. A few tips I'd like to give...DON'T OVER-MIX!! That's why your pancakes aren't fluffy. Mix it just enough to incorporate, then leave it alone. It should fluff up in your bowl a bit. If it doesn't fluff up, then you overmixed it. Cook at a med low to medium temperature, the sugar in the batter makes them brown quicker and the insides don't set up properly, hence the mushy or undercooked 'flour' taste. As far as the 'sour' taste complaint; I truly feel that this is because newer cooks see the word sour and expect that it will be sour...so they taste sour. If the recipe called for buttermilk, I believe these comments would not even come in to play. Some people just don't know that the vinegar/milk combo is just a homemade version of buttermilk. Bottom line; you really can't go wrong with this recipe, if you follow the directions.
