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

This is simple as making pancakes.
First, slice up the bananas into quarter pieces. Combie pancake mix with water or milk, whichever you prefer.
Dip Bananas in batter and fry in oil until golden brown.
Lastly, while still hot, sprinkle cinnamon & sugar over cooked bananas

I have made French Fried Onion Rings using pancake batter as the coating after dusting the rings with flour to make it stick. Pretty yummy

I use it to make a beer batter for fish if i fry fish. Also to make deep fried oreo cookies. just make the batter real thin and fry for about 2 min. take cookies out of fryer drain and sprinkle with powdered suger.
