This is a recipe you can take and add just about anything you like. To me it's easier because I have to admit, I cannot make pancakes on a skillet!!!! The one thing I think I just don't do to my own liking, so this is a simple way of me avoiding the whole skillet/griddle thing. I have added, bananas, pecans, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, sausage crumbles, chocolate chips and bacon. Even some with cheese. What is great too is that you can start this off and make a little of whatever pancakes for each individual person in your home, because in my house, not everyone likes or wants the same thing. These are also great just plain with Maple Syrup.
