* You can get away without the oil if you like the taste of oil-less pancakes. I do not. I would not recommend leaving the oil out if you are making these pancakes, and not using them in the parfait.
* You should have about 4 pancakes. I wanted one, thick pancake layer so I used 2 pancakes in each layer. Feel free to make more layers and only use 1 pancake per layer. Either way, each parfait should have 2 pancakes :)
