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 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.
