I like pumpkin a lot! I make them year you’d for my kids with whipped egg whites , and they go crazy for them.
I alternate between buckwheat and buttermilk mixes by New Hope Mills from Skaneateles, NY. This is a great mix, my family has been using it for decades….always with NY maple syrup.

Wow! reading thru all these pancake ideas makes me want to fix pancakes for tomorrow’s breakfast.
Buckwheat is also an extremely nutritious grain to eat!
I’ll be darned. And here I thought Buckwheat was a character in the Our Gang Comedies. [}:)]
This morning Ms OC made buttermilk pancakes with fresh blueberries and walnuts. [:D]
Banana, Chocolate, Pineapple. Choco chips, Apple and Strawberry Pan cakes are available.I liked Chocolate pancakes.
Until Mr Chips introduces you to Korean pancakes, you don’t know what pancakes can be! Come on, Jim. you can’t keep it a secret forever.
Avoid Bisquick Gluten Free Pancake Mix at all costs. This stuff makes the worlds worst pancakes.
Here in Western N.Y. there is an amazing place called The Maple Tree Inn. It is only open when the sap flows, from late february to early April. All you can eat buckwheat pancakes that are very fluffy, almost like buttermilk ones, but with that buckwheat flavor. the sausagge is from a local butcher shop and very tasty. All syrup is pure fresh maple. I recommend this to anybody who lives in the Northeast, worth the drive. I have met people from as far as Montreal. It is about 1 1/2 hours south of Rochester in Angelica.
I know it will sound kind of weird. One day, I make pancake, a cup of honey and some butter on the table. I had boil some sausage, pan fried eggs for sandwiches that I would prepare for snack at the park later. My children thought the sausages is for the pancake. They rolled the sausage and eggs into the pancake. . . eat it. Eventually, they began to like it. Kinda of sweet, salty favor.
Dude you had me until “Boiled Sausage” try spam next time!
Here in New Mexico, we have blue corn pancakes. I know there are also kinds like whole wheat, buckweat, etc.
Also pancakes themselves have different names: griddle cakes, johnny cakes (I think this is the same), flapjacks, etc.
What other names and types of pancakes do you know about?
I’ll second buckwheat pancakes with real / fresh blue berries and real maple syrup.
Had some last weekend at Young’s Restaurant in Durham, NH – simply Outstanding.
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.
I’m with Susan. I like flapjacks and all the rest but potato pancakes are my favourite. It’s partially due to my Lithuanian background I suppose but the other reason is that real potato pancakes are so tough to find even in dedicated pancake joints. Sour cream with potato pancakes is a must, however.
I’m a huge potato pancake fan but they are hard to find let alone good ones. I prefer them thin, slightly crisp and with a hint of green onion.
