Being a former San Francisco resident I've had the pleasure of eating at Bette's Oceanview Diner. The only problem with eating Bette's cakes is your faced with the reality that you own pancakes really don't compare. Now, with this book in hand, I am delighted to say that this is no longer the case.

The Pancake Handbook isn't a mere "recipe book". I've tried many recipes throughout the years with varying success. In this book you'll learn that picking the right flour, baking soda and other ingredients is just as important as how they're mixed together. You'll learn about griddle temperature, batter consistency and when to flip for perfect doneness. There are so many simple little tricks to better pancakes and they're all in this book.

The recipes cover pancakes of all varieties including; basic, fancy, spiced, cornmeal, whole-wheat, and sourdough. There are chapters on dairy pancakes, crepes, soufflé pancakes, kid's pancakes and toppings. Many of them have variations and add-ins as well as optional ingredients such as how to make buttermilk pancakes when you haven't any buttermilk on hand.

I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to make great cakes regardless of your current cooking abilities. It is simple to follow and virtually guarantees fantastic results.

This book is a must have for any pancake lover. I was first introduced to The Pancake Handbook through reading a two page spread of excerpts in the LA Times. I tried 3 of the 5 recipes before I bought the book. Every recipe I've tested so far is delicious and superb!!!

This isn't quite what i expected. It's very small and there are no photos- something I always appreciate in a cookbook. I bought this as part of a breakfast gift basket along with a good skillet for making pancakes, Vermont maple syrup, some specialty pancake/waffle mixes so it's fine but nothing to get excited about.

Read the beginning! Do not skip it! Tells you why to follow the recipes! You cannot mess up these pancakes if you follow their rules! My sister uses this, and she makes the best waffles. I made the Crunchy Whole Wheat Walnut Hotcakes and substituted pecans, added ground flax, and everybody (ages 4 to 41)LOVED them. NONE left for the next day. My kids begged to try another recipe the next weekend!

We still love this book! We have been working our way through and love all of the recipes we have used so far! We bought a waffle maker (Presto Flip Side) and now are using the recipes for waffles. One of our favorites is the Pumpkin. We usually make a triple batch (family of 6) to have leftovers.

Recipe after luscious recipe of tired and true pancakes as served in one of the best pancake and breakfast places in the country. You can't miss with this book. I just wish it was available as a hard bound. the large paperback won't last very long use.

What a nice book. I've tried many of the recipes already and found them to be accurate and tasty. I've already got notes in the margins, so I know this is a recipe book I'll be going back to often. It was fun to see this diner on Diners,Drive-Ins and Dives, and be able to purchase this book.

This book overviews so many different types of pancakes! Tons of different recipes; I totally recommend! It is a little smaller than I expected- it's a small paperback book, but it is still packed with information!
