  • Cook over medium heat until pancakes are golden brown, turning to cook the second sides when pancake surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry (about 1 to 2 minutes per side). Serve immediately or keep warm in a loosely covered ovenproof dish in a 300 degree F oven. If desired, serve with Blueberry Syrup. Makes 16 pancakes.

I've made these two mornings in a row and they are phenomenal.  I have but one suggestion: this batter will take longer to cook than most.  I recommend cooking them on slightly less than medium heat and keeping them covered while they cook.
