When my daughter, who often has to be persuaded to eat, came back from America raving about American pancakes, I was delighted. I set about making some for her - with sometimes sad, sometimes laughable results! I just couldn't get it. Apparently their pancakes are much nicer!

A Google search revealed that they are thicker, but pouring the batter thicker didn't get the results we wanted.

Enter this book. It is a quick read - thankfully, my daughter was wasting away! - and it revealed the reason for my American pancake failure - lack of raising agent. English pancakes don't use it, American ones do. That is what makes them fluffy and thick.

We have tried a number of recipes from this book and they have all worked (something of a miracle for me, I'm a bit of a klutz in the kitchen).

As a bit of a health nut, I was delighted that this book is realistic about the nutrient content of regular pancakes and the effort put in to include ideas, ingredients and recipes for making them a bit healthier. Some of the ingredients sound a bit unlikely but they actually work! Sweet potato was a particular favourite for us and we're going to try the quinoa ones next.

The grass is always greener on the other side of the Atlantic...
Well it turns out with pancakes it really is. Their pancakes are much nicer than ours and easy to vary. This book gave me some great ideas and I will definitely start having them more than just once a year now!

This is the first time I've read a recipe book with an intro that actually made me laugh, a really nice touch.

Loving the variety of recipes for healthy and unhealthy pancakes, just need to decide whether I want to be healthy or not!!

Some ingredients are a bit hard to come by here in the UK though.

Looking forward to trying these recipes. Make sure you check you have all the ingredients you need in stock before you start. These recipes are truly unusual!

While theses recipes read delicious it's a shame there weren't any pictures from which to refer (and no doubt tempt).

I am unable to comment on this book due to ordering it by accident alongside another book on my Kindle so I haven't read it.
