I like to play around with both “add-ins” to pancakes and liquids used. Some of my home-made “bacon” that has been cooked..or summer sausage is a nice savoury alternative. Maybe some day I’ll try clams or Scallops with a Butter/Dill sauce for dinner.
For Breakfast here…….Blueberry, banana (sometimes helped with mashed banana), or strawberry are the most asked for.
Add ins….vanilla…………lemon peel….reconstituted!!!!! Penzey’s is especially good. Cinnamon.
Even if I’m not using my home mix with baking soda, Bisquick can be fun with changes of liquid.some good:
Some not as successful:
Chicken broth..thought it could be and “underlayer” for a chicken stew
May try chunks of melon some day will have to re-adjust the liquids. I tend to make my pancakes on the runny/eggy side rather than thick floury ones
And No.Johnny cakes are NOT pancakes although similar. Love them with dinner or whenever I am in Rhode Island……but butter hits them, never ever syrup.
