I made the recipe, scaled for 4 pancakes, exactly as written with the exception that I used homemade kefir milk instead of buttermilk (a normal substitute for me, and since it's just soured milk it should not be considered a fundamental change). It came out exactly as advertised - light and fluffy and delicious. Using the 4-pancake recipe and adding 4 oz of fresh blueberries the batter, I got 8 pancakes, 5" wide and 1/2" or better thick. I don't understand why some cooks didn't have them rise enough, but I was using fairly new baking soda and that would help I guess. I could actually see them rise on the griddle as they cooked. I think the recipe might be even better with a tad of cinnamon, and I might try using spelt flour; but these would be for my own taste and I think the recipe is excellent as it is written. Thank you for posting it!
Update: I made the recipe again with a mod. Using the recipe scaled to 4 pancake size, you would add 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon to the dry ingredients and 1 tsp vanilla extract to the wet ingredients before mixing them together. I must say, the extra flavoring took it from excellent to somewhere near outrageous.
