    Very standard recipe, tastes like good old fashioned basic puffy pancakes. Used 150ml of milk instead of 130ml like one of the other comments mentioned. Also dropped in a few chocolate chunks after the batter is poured into the pan.

    I didn't have caster sugar available, so I had to use granulated sugar instead. Interestingly it worked better for my pancake. But it would be helpful to know how long exactly should one rest the batter though. All in all, it was a good recipe.

    Very tasty! After reading the other reviews which said the milk was not enough I used 150ml of milk instead of 130ml as per the recipe. With these quantities of ingredients came out 4 pancakes. So...I wouldn’t say it’s for 4 people, however me and my boyfriend really enjoyed them! Definitely going to make this again!

    The batter turns out super thick and I had to add twice the amount of milk to get it to an acceptable consistency. The taste is nothing like any pancake I’ve had in the US, and not in a good way. I’m not going to make this again.

    The batter needed wayyyy more water and way more baking powder than said in the instructions. They were not fluffy without my own modifications

    the batter was good it was the cooking that was hard. it didnt tell u how much batter to scoop into the pan. i made it too thick many times even when i reduced the size which caused it to be uncooked and still battery inside. 1 or 2 did come out good though
