I will be making this tomorrow

I'm sure the amount of milk

I'm sure the amount of milk should be 1 1/2 or 2 cups; the eggs should be separated and the whites whipped to soft peaks and then added gently to the batter. A tbsp. of vanilla would enhance the flavor. My cakes were delicious, light and fluffy. I often wonder why people comment when they didn't even make the recipe.

I usually make potato

I usually make potato pancakes, I didn't realize people made regular pancakes for the day. And I cheat, I use a potato pancake mix but add real potatoes and other left over veggies.
But this looks like a great and versatile recipe, a keeper.
Thanks

I make potato pancakes, also

I make potato pancakes, also and serve with applesauce and sour cream.

I only make small batches of

I only make small batches of batter; 1 cup SR flour, 1 egg, 1 Tbl sugar, 1/4 cup oil, and buttermilk to make the consistancy I want. I use a ladle to 'pour' my batter to make medium size pancakes. This makes about 6 medium sized pancakes.
This was my Oma's recipe & it makes light, tender cakes! Smother with soft butter & your preferred syrup or jam! Mmmmm......!

The recipe I use is similar

The recipe I use is similar but only calls for 2 eggs and 1-1/4 cup of flour with 1 tablespoon of baking powder for leavening. I use a non-stick pan and never fry in additional grease with no sticking problems.
