Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Dorie Greenspan suggests that pancakes are the oldest hot food known to humankind. This flippant book provides recipes for everything from basic flapjacks to sophisticated crepes, blintzes, and savory surprises. Well-written directions make them all look foolproof. Greenspan gives all the advice you need on equipment and ingredients to ensure that even a novice will turn out pancakes like a pro. As in her book on waffles, Greenspan proves she's one of the most appealing creative cooks around.

From Library Journal

Greenspan, the author of Baking with Julia (reviewed above), takes pancakes to new heights in this inspired collection of more than 85 recipes. In addition to basic pancakes, she includes crepes, potato pancakes, German pancakes, and blintzes to serve for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. They range from traditional Basic Buttermilk Pancakes and homey Banana-Pecan Pancakes with Buttery Bananas to exotic Sweet Potato-Chipotle and elegant Cherry Chocolate Blintzes. Many are quick and call for ingredients most cooks have on hand. There are also imaginative syrups, salsas, sauces, and ice creams. All the recipes provide serving suggestions, and Greenspan's detailed instructions leave nothing to chance. She also includes make-ahead and freezing directions. A delightful book; highly recommended.?Susan Lantzius, formerly Pastry Chef, San Domenico, New York

Pancakes were something I never dared try for fear they'd come out either raw or burnt. I picked up this book because the cover and recipes were irresistible. It started a minor revolution at my house, and we now have a tradition of Saturday morning pancakes.
Dorie Greenspan patiently describes ingredients, techniques, and equipment (nothing scary here). The recipes are divided into three sections, suitable for breakfast, brunch, and dinner. All of the breakfast ones I've tried are wonderfully sweet and moist -- I eat them without any topping. Our favorites include the simple cornmeal pancakes, cottage cheese pancakes, and the luxurious, light, lemon and ricotta pancakes.
The brunch and dinner pancake recipes are adventurous, with spicy and unusual ingredients. I haven't been interested enough to try any. But the book is worth it for the clear instructions and delicious breakfast pancakes.

Let me be clear. I do not cook. I prepare food for the family so we will not starve. But with this book I can make breakfast fit for a specialty brunch café. Instructions are very clear and easy to follow and the results are always delicious. I admit, I've owned it for years and have only tried about 6 recipes, but every time I open it I remember how good those were and go back. This morning I finally tried a new one, the Four Season's Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes. I was a bit intimidated by the origin of the recipe, but they were delightful! This book is perfect if your family (like mine) loves pancakes or if you just want to try something extra special for breakfast (although she includes many non-breakfast recipes, including many savory preparations).

It takes a lot to get a 5 star review out of me, especially where a cookbook is concerned. I've tried the recipes in this. They are foolproof. Both dependable mainstays and creative twists. It's the penultimate on the subject. Why is this book out of print??? Someone should seriously fix that. If you can get your hands on a reasonably priced copy, do it. Now.
