    A number of people have complained about the confusing directions . This was easy to follow and very tasty  -  16 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I liked this recipe, but wished the directions were clearer. I started to make it from beginning to end and had mixed the lemon juice with cornstarch already when I realized that part of the recipe was for the syrup. I wasn't intending to make the syrup, as I already have blueberry syrup in my cupboard, so it was a waste of a couple of ingredients. Perhaps whomever posted this recipe could separate the pancake recipe from the syrup recipe just to make it clear. Thanks.  -  29 Nov 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I loved it my husband only liked it. I didn't have any problem making them. I recommend you read the recipe completely before making or you could have a problem. I made them according to the recipe and made the blueberry syrup also. I would give it 5 stars but the recipe could be written a little better with the syrup ingredients seperate and I must mention they are not the normal pancake they are different. But I was looking for different and I loved them.  -  18 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
