Buttermilk? Bluberry? Pumpkin? How do you make them? From scratch? Bisquick?

I cheat on pancakes and use a mix. I buy the Hungry Jack Buttermilk pancake mix. My sister started making them for my son with ground Flax seed in them and he loves them that way, so I have made them that way for him ever since. He likes his with butter and no syrup. I do not eat pancakes very often, but when I do eat them it is the same way my son does.

What makes pancakes taste best for me is having my daughter devour them. I don't really make pancakes from scratch. A box mix or bisquick usually is my starting point. But, I don't think that's far removed from 'from scratch' as these pancake and biscuit mixes are just flour with some baking soda or baking powder already mixed in. Hrm, I seem to recall that buttermilk and regular milk change the requirement from baking soda to backing powder or something like that. I think buttermilk mixes require baking soda because they are more acidic. I guess that means making pancakes from scratch could get all messed up if you used the wrong leavening type agent given the acidity of your batter.

I'll probably be the minority here, but I do not like pancakes. Something about them just doesn't taste right. I actually think I don't like them much because of the texture of the pancake after it is cooked. That and I cannot eating syrup on them. Too much syrup makes me gag. And I can't stand eating pancakes without anything on them either. So it's pretty much a lose/lose situation.

I love pancakes but usaully I won't make them myself. If I would make them I used bisquick. I like buttermilk and I prefer chocolate.

I love homemade buttermilk pancakes and if you toss in a few bluebrerries I won't protest. Also they are very good with a banana sliced on top with the maple syrup. Yummy!

I do love pancakes...blueberry is yummy, sometimes I add oats, banana, and/or cinnamon. I've never tried pumpkin in the batter. I always make them from scratch...it's cheaper and healthier.
