Easy to make, fun to eat

I halved the recipe and used a pinch of salt (i.e. "1/16 teaspoon") but I wish I had used more. Otherwise very tasty!

Easy, great texture, easy to use different kinds of fruit and nuts

I used the whole wheat flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder. The pancake turned out great. I used cranberries in place of cherries, and added sugar, and used almond flavoring vs vanilla, to compliment the almond nuts.

Good stuff!

Single dad new to cooking and I find it amusing that almost every recipe calls for either baking soda or baking powder ... except the one thats baked. I may try a teaspoon of powder next time to get a little mor puff. Are adjustments ever needed when cutting a recipe in half?

Nice alternative to pancakes.

You'll need a smaller pan and less cooking time if halved. Baking powder will give you more of a muffin-like texture; baking soda won't do much of anything, with little acid to react with. This puffs the same way popovers do: the dough separates and a pocket of air forms, which expands with the heat.

Great with Raspberries

We substituted raspberries for the cherries and omitted the cinnamon. It was delicious!

Special weekend breakfast

Pitting all those cherries took a while, but the result was worth it. Can't understand why the pancake didn't puff up for some reviewers--it's been foolproof for me.

Easy and tasty
