    NOTE: Added 9/6/2008: After reading a couple of reviews that had their pancakes turn out "crepe-like," I realized that I had left out one important caveat from the original recipe: THE BAKING POWDER MUST BE FRESH! For a number of years, I puzzled over why sometimes this recipe turned out beautifully fluffy pancakes. .and other times they just lay on the griddle, thin and disappointing.

    I finally figured out that it was determined by the age of the baking powder I was using. (I had two canisters in my cabinet. one week the pancakes turned out wonderful. the next thin and flat. finally the little light came on in my, some of us are slower than others!) So, if your baking powder is older than a year, you may very well end up with crepes. newer than that, you should be good!
