I am looking for new ideas for making pancakes. I have fallen into a rut and need something new to do. Any ideas?

What are your old ideas that now bore you? Do you mean breakfast? Savory/side dish? Dessert? Please help us help you. :)

A LONG time ago, a pancake house in Augusta had ham pancakes with a cheddar sauce, chicken pancakes with milk gravy, tuna pancakes (cannot remember the sauce), and a host of other "dinner choices".

I usually make only sweet pancakes, not savory. I make them 1/2 whole wheat and throw in some walnuts and sometimes some flax seed if I have it.

The savory pancake idea sounds interesting, but not with tuna.

Pancakes with peanut butter and molasses syrup are a variation I like. Then there's crepes filled with cream cheese, served hot with jam or fruit syrup on them.

currant cinnamon could be good

Here are a few:
  • Dutch babies (kind of like giant pancake popovers) with powdered sugar and lots of lemon
  • Banana Pancakes
  • Chopped nectarines
  • Pancakes with chocolate chips, orange zest and orange extract
  • Cut the sugar in half and substitute 1/4 of the flour for corn flour, add some fresh or canned corn kernels, and some chopped jalapenos
  • Pigs in their blankets
  • Apple cinnamon (apple sauce added to the batter)
  • Buckwheat pancakes (replace 1/4 of the flour with an equal amount of buckwheat flour)
  • Mixed grain -- Mix buckwheat, wholewheat, rolled oats, corn flour, rye, etc., in any proportion you like, and mix it with white flour. You'll want to keep about 50% white flour or the pancakes will be too gritty and heavy.
  • Latkes
  • Pecan or walnut pancakes
  • Bacon-bit pancakes

......yes, speaking of oranges,

Grand Marnier Pancakes with Grand Marnier Ice Cream.....

Grand Marnier on ice....I finsih this with a cup of black tea, 1/2 ounce of Grand Marnier which makes the tea taste like Blueberries.

I will take the "Pancakes" for supper anytime.

Chef BDL, I enjoyed the simplicity of your pancake recipe that you posted (one of everything).

Thank you,

Lots of great ideas here!

I am especially intrigued by the one that has the corn flour, corn and jalapeños. What would you use as an accompanying sauce or syrup?

Got a craving for pancakes now....

Sweet options
- simply spread with blackberry jam (jelly) and top with heavy cream
- top with rich vanilla icecream and butterscotch sauce
- macerated berry fruits in season, thick dollop of chantilly cream, sprinkle of icing (confectioner's) sugar

Savoury (wot BDL said on adjusting the recipe)
- make a stack of small ones, layer with bolognaise sauce, shredded tasty cheddar, topped with shavings of parmesan
- make a giant one (12" pan), fill with chicken mornay, roll, top with cheese, under griller(broiler) till golden and bubbly
- creamy, peppery mushroom sauce (in stack again) topped with rashers of crispy fried bacon
- poached egg and hollandaise sauce
- Huevos rancheros style, just substitute tortilla with good sized pancake

How about a tequila-butter sauce? Kind of like butterscotch. (I'm not going to try it but it would be interesting if someone else did and told me how it came out).

Love those buckwheat pancakes. Got a sack of buckwheat flour up at the mill where we pick up regular wheat flour, but I've not used much yet.

First time I tried making pancakes I thought they were pretty good, but I forgot to copy the recipe. Second time I tried one from the Web, "Leningrad Special Buckwheat Pancakes." *choke* I hope they were formulated for diabetics or some such, 'cos they were atrocious. What they lacked in flavor they more than made up in -- to be kind -- durability. I now call them "Stalingrad Surprise Buckwheat Appliance Glides" and insist that somewhere in the recipe part of the buckwheat magically turns into shredded Belomorkanal cigarettes. That is the only way to explain the miraculous texture and flavor of these gulag-style treats.

Think I'll make up some batter now for making tomorrow morning... but not Stalingrad Surprise!
