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

I love that there are so many options - buttermilk, cornmeal, mult-grain, cottage cheese, fruit, oatmeal, ricotta. My favorite breakfast pancakes of hers is probably the buttermilk and the apple-walnut, although I really love them all. She also includes a special topping - a jam, a fruit syrup or fruit butter - for each kind of pancake. You don't have to make them - the pancakes are still delicious - but they are doubly good with her toppings. I admit I've never tried the dessert pancakes - I usually refer to her companion book, Waffles from Morning to Midnight, for a quick dessert, but I can attest that all of the breakfast and dinner pancakes - especially the potato pancakes and the zucchini pancakes - are delicious, because I've made them all.
Like the Waffle book, everything is easy - no complicated technique, no complicated ingredients or equipment. ANYone - even someone who thinks they can't cook - can make good pancakes with this book. My son even learned to make pancakes using this book, and takes the "Breakfast quickies" recipe with him when he goes camping!
My only complaint is that the books is now out of print - I wish the publisher would re-print both books again so that more people could purchase it. It is a must have for any kitchen, IMO.
