    I've never been much of a pancake fan, but sourdough is definitely the way to go.

    You mean you don't have an *International* House of Pancakes restaurant in the UK?

    My illusions are crushed.

    Next time you desire pancakes....use the recipe from Andrew, with these slight mods.....add some vanilla extract, and a few drops of lemon juice.

  10. Stupid dorms! There are never any pancakes. This thread does not help ease my pain. And really, Bisquick is all you need.

    uhh i am a chef let me get the nice photo! lol
    Here is a recipe i enjoy all the time! Also used to serve it at the resturant i worked in!

    Maple Syrup Apples
    2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
    3 large Golden Delicious apples (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
    1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Pancakes
    1 cup all purpose flour
    2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
    2 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
    1 large egg
    1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

    Additional unsalted butter

    Additional pure maple syrup

    ____________________________________________________
    For maple syrup apples:
    Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and 1 tablespoon maple syrup; sauté until apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Mix in remaining 1/2 cup maple syrup and cinnamon.
    For pancakes:
    Combine first 6 ingredients in large bowl; whisk to blend. Whisk buttermilk, yogurt, and egg in medium bowl to blend; add to dry ingredients and stir until just blended but still lumpy. Gently mix in 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter.

    Heat griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spread thin coating of butter over griddle and let melt. Working in batches, drop batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto griddle, spacing apart. Cook pancakes until brown on bottom and bubbles form on top, about 3 minutes. Turn pancakes over and cook until bottoms are brown and pancakes are barely firm to touch. Transfer to plates. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter to griddle as needed.

    Spoon apples over pancakes. Serve, passing additional maple syrup.

    This one is truly awsome as well! But its got a little booze in it!

    Raspberry Sauce
    2 12-ounce packages frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
    2/3 cup sugar
    1/4 cup water
    1 tablespoon kirsch (clear cherry brandy) or water
    Pancakes
    2 cups all purpose flour
    3 tablespoons plus 1/3cup sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 cups buttermilk
    2 large eggs
    7 tablespoons (or more) unsalted butter, melted

    5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, halved, cored, cut into 1/3-inch-thick slices 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    _____________________________________________________
    For sauce: Stir berries, 2/3 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat until mixture comes to boil, stirring occasionally. Puree mixture in processor. Strain into bowl, pressing on solids. Mix in kirsch. (Sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cover; chill.)
    For pancakes: Blend flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, eggs and 2 tablespoons melted butter in medium bowl; whisk mixture into dry ingredients. Set batter aside.

    Preheat oven to 250°F. Heat 4 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add apples, cinnamon and 1/3 cup sugar; sauté until apples are golden, about 10 minutes.

    Heat 10-inch-diameter nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Pour scant 1/2 cup batter into skillet, tilting to form 7- to 8-inch-diameter pancake. Cook until golden brown on bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn and cook until second side browns, about 2 minutes. Place 1/8 of apple mixture on half of pancake; fold pancake in half. Slide out onto baking sheet; keep warm in oven. Repeat to form 5 more pancakes, brushing skillet with more butter as needed. Serve pancakes with sauce

  20. You want something different? Try bisquick, but mix in a about 3 teaspoons of Chili powder for every pancake. And instead of syrup, use some diced grilled onions and salsa. Damn is that good eatin'!!!
