Uses For Pancake Mix Besides Pancakes or Waffles?

Has anyone ever used boxed pancake mix to make anything else besides pancakes/waffles?
I have about 1/2 of a box left, and I also have flour in the house, but no baking powder left. I noticed that one of the ingredients in the pancake mix is baking soda.
Could I combine some flour and the pancake mix and make something like biscuits?
LOL...if anyone has any ideas or recipes, please let me know. Thanks, Robin

I make corn fritters with pancake mix - as long as its the "just add water" type.

Corn Fritters

4-5 cups vegi oil
2 1/2 pancake mix
1/2 c cornmeal
salt & pepper
1 pkg frozen corn (can sub canned corn)
1 onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped - also de-seed
1 (or 2 if you want it spicy)jalapeno, seeded & diced fine
1 1/3 c water
ranch dressing

Heat up your oil until your themometer reads 375F.

Meanwhile, mix pancake mix, cornmeal, salt & pepper in a bowl. Stir in corn, onion, red pepper, jalapeno and 1 1/3 cups water.

Gently drop about 2 Tbsp scooped dough into your heated oil. Cook for about 3 minutes or until browned. Remove from oil & place on paper towels to remove the extra grease.

Serve them with ranch dressing.

Deep fried oreos are oh so good. You can only eat a few but if you have alot of friends over that love oreo cookies they are great. My sister and I had them for the first time about a year ago at the county fair. We go just for the food and the entertainment of people watching.

They will deep fry anything that will hold still at these county and state fairs. Pickles, candybars, icecream, cookies or butter, it makes no difference. Things come and things go, but Corn Dogs Live forever. LOLOL
