Jim, I agree with you that Cracker Barrel's pancakes are the best. I have three of Todd Wilbur's Restuarant Secret books, and they do not have the recipe listed in any of them. I have had the pancake mix which is good, but I was unable to replicate the crunchy outside texture that they do so well. It's Sunday morning, and now I want some pancakes!! Good luck on your pancake venture....
