Be sure you're using SELF RISING flour (or adding baking soda/powder) to make them into a real fluffy American pancake. I never add butter to mine and have never seen anyone do that, but a bit of oil/butter in the pan to keep them from sticking is pretty essential.
Oh, and BUTTERMILK when you can find it makes it a good Southern US variation...they're much better with it.
WOW!That sounds delicious!
looks lovely
They are - why not try making them this weekend! Great served with blueberries or fresh strawberries/raspberries
great recipe!
does it actually take 8 hours to cook, or was that just a mistake?
it took me about 10 mins to make the batter and then the cooking took about 3 mins per pancake.
That sounds so nice!!!

Thanks again
