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

Peel and devein shrimp; rinse well. Combine pancake mix, beer and coconut milk and mix well. Dredge shrimp in flour, shake off excess. Dip into batter then dredge coated shrimp in coconut. Heat oil in saucepan (2" to 3" deep) to 350 degrees. Fry 5 to 6 shrimp at a time approximately 35 to 45 seconds on each side and golden brown. Drain on paper towel and serve.

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.

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

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.

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.
