Paul, I hear you. I made these once and my husband said they were the best he’d ever had, EVER. And yes, when I made them I made a half portion, no problem. Not really being a morning person (though I’m much better than I used to be, kids and all…), I don’t often feel like going through the effort of making these, but they are sublime.
If you like pancakes, try the crepes- I made the lemon crepes suzette variation for a brunch dessert (served with fresh berries and whipped cream), and really liked it.
