These were pretty good. I had the heat too high at first and scorched a couple. The rest were fine but I noticed a strong taste of flour.

For even lighter pancakes, separate the egg. Add the yolk with the other wet ingredients and mix in. Beat the white until just stiff, and fold it in gently. Then let batter sit for about 5 minutes.
