I needed a recipe for blueberry pancakes, but I couldn't find one that looked good... So I substituted 1/2C of canned blueberries for the chocolate chips in this recipe, added 1T of brown sugar and 1/4t of almond essence. These were THE best pancakes I have ever made!

These are incredible pancakes. A friend made them and left the chocolate chips out, put in 1/4 tsp lemon zest, and (in the cream) substituted the cinnamon with 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice. They were wonderfully-fall-tasting. Next, I will try it exactly as the recipe is written.

Paula, these are absolutely THE BEST pancakes I have ever eaten, bar none. I made a batch,(substituted buttermilk for the milk) and boy were they good! Even my nephew, who is a very picky eater, said "these are the best chocolate chip pancakes I've ever had!" That's saying something, coming from that boy! Thanks for another great recipe. You are one the best!

These are the best pancakes I've ever had. We put Chocolate Chips in the ones for our daughter and pecans in the ones for the "grown ups". This is a must try for any pancake lover.

The best pancakes ever. The cinnamon cream is excellent.

By blueyegirl on January 18, 2009


I didn't make the cinnamon cream so I can't comment on that, but I will comment on the pancakes. My 10 year old daughter and I saw Paula make these on her show and I decided to try them today. My daughter was thrilled. They are wonderful and easy. They were actually quite light and very fluffy. As an adult, I didn't think I'd like the chocolate chips but I was wrong. These pancakes are great without syrup. If you prefer to leave out the chocolate chips, they are still great without them. I plan to use this recipe as a base to make lots of variations. No more box pancakes for our house!
