    Well, I would have to say Blueberries for regular pancakes. But I would also say hot cocoa mix ( just a little bit) to get some chocolate pancakes with chocolate chips! yum! I wish it was breakfast time.... 3 more hours to go.

    I like using an equal combination of white flour, whole wheat flour and cornmeal to make my pancakes, with a dash of vanilla, then fry them up in a bit of bacon grease.

    They are good enough to eat without syrup or jelly.

      baking powder or soda? eggs? milk or water? ever try buckwheat?

      1. Ivorwen profile image68
        Ivorwenposted 13 years agoin reply to this

        Soda, lemon juice, milk for breakfast, water when they are a side dish (served with stew), eggs and salt. 

        I have not tried buckwheat, thought I have used barley and/or wheat malt. (use hop tea for a beer like flavor)

    I keep a cannister of very fine sugar with a vanilla bean it in. It is the sugar I use to bake pastries and pancakes - and it smells like a bakery when I use it smile

      I never heard of root beer in pancakes.  I will have to give it a try.

    If you like sweet potatoes then adding fine grated sweet potatoes to your pancakes makes them so delicious. You will want to peel and grate your sweet potatoes and then brown them in butter before adding them to the pancake batter.

    This isn't in the pancakes, but rather on the pancakes....I have to have real maple syrup and real butter.  No fake syrups and no margarine.

    We like to add fruit.  Especially bananas, blueberries, or apples.  Also a few pecans are good.  Then top with some Cool Whip.
