Pancakes

How about pancakes? I don't know if this has been discussed in the past, but it seems pancakes are really a hit and miss breakfast item. I would like to have your votes for your favorite pancakes - ones that are consistantly good everytime you have them.

    From a restaurant, IHOP's Country Griddle Cakes, at home I love corn cakes. IHOP used to make a pancake called "Portuguese Pancake".. a plate wide monster filled with linguica... I was real sorry to see that disappear. Blueberry pancakes are a favorite as well.

    When it comes to pancakes, the Original Pancake House has the best selection around.

    I love Original Pancake House Sourdough pancakes -- so much that I haven't tried any of their other ones. What have I missed?

    Do I remember correctly that they also do good bacon? Orange juice?

    I like the Original Pancake House better than other pancake chains because they have fresh squeesed orange juice and the quality of their food seems to be higher. My favorite place for breakfast will always be Fat Apples in El Cerrito - love the apple maple sausages.

    The menu for the Original Pancake House looks great...but I'm a little distressed not to see chocolate chip pancakes, which have always been my favorite. I don't eat pancakes often, and eat chocolate chip pancakes even less, but I like to know they're available, just in case. For whatever reason, they don't seem to be plentiful where I live in NYC (although I do know where to get them in a pinch.)

    The OPHs in Indianapolis have chocolate chip pancakes on the menu, as well as chocolate chip waffles. My favorite is the blueberry waffle with blueberries inside, fresh blueberries on top, and blueberry compote to pour over it. It definitely will satisfy any blueberry cravings.

    Perkins Pancakes are the lightest and fluffiest around as far as I am concerned. Now, if they would just offer warmed real maple syrup.........

    I've noticed Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, even VA Beach with lots of pancake places. Do people on vacation crave pancakes?

    There is a small place at the city market in KC called simply The City Diner. They have really good pancakes. If you can finish one order you are allowed to sign their "Wall of Shame" indicating that you were super human enough to eat this honkin' plate o' cakes.

    I personally love my mother's banana pancakes with some Knott's strawberry syrup.
    But Denny's pancakes are my favourite restaurant pancakes.

    My basic batter is Bisquik. . . the recipe on the back of the box. If I want them real puffy I go light on the milk. . . if I want them flat I mix them thin. You can mash up a banana and sprinkle some walnuts for banana-nut pan cakes or do whatever else you want with fruits and other eidble items. . . chocolate chips in pan cakes?

    Someone also mentioned corn cakes. . . I'd like to get that recipe.

    I was told that Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg has awesome pancakes. I remember eating at a restaurant in Abingdon Virginia a few years back called the Bonfire. They had really good buttermilk pancakes. They closed that location about five or six years ago. Figures! I just got back from Townsend Tennessee(my annual spring trip there). There is a place called The Back Porch which has yummy pancakes and all kinds of good food.

    Try using 7-Up as the liquid with Bisquick.

    All-time favorite pancakes-- Magnolia Cafe, Austin (TX, of course), gingerbread pancakes. I love ginger anyway, and they slip in a little extra to give it some bite, a nice counterpoint to the butter and syrup. They inherited the recipe from a former restaurant whose name escapes me. It's not hard to google the recipe, but it's too complicated for a simple amateur cook like me to duiplicate, so I just make sure to stop there when I'm back within 200 miles of Austin.

    I tried that recipe over the weekend while my mate's parents were visiting, and the pancakes were a huge hit all around. They were incredibly rich and filling; a bit dry, perhaps, but the homemade whipped-cream I made helped with that!

    Here's the website, by the way.

    I like my pancakes on a shade darker than a lot of places serve them and I particularly miss IHOP's Silve Dollar Pancakes.

    I use plain seltzer with the Buttermilk Complete mixes - light & fluffy and delish...

    Rather than just light and fluffy, I actually like my pancakes to have a little pull to them. I've tried stirring the batter more to develop a bit of gluten, but it doesn't come out the same. The Original Pancake House's yeast pancakes have the texture, but I've also had some soda/powder based pancakes with the same texture as well. On a recent roadtrip, I'm embarrassed to say we stopped at a Denney's off the Jersey Turnpike for breakfast -- surprisingly,the pancakes there had the texture I was looking for. However (and not surpisingly), NOTHING else passed muster.

    It's on the back of the buckwheat mix, and I'm out of it right now.

    The "Joy of Cooking" has a recipe for buttermilk pancakes that calls for all cake flour, and that's "my" recipe that gets compliments. The recipe calls for 1 c. of buttermilk, but I add between 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk. Crucial tip for all pancake batters: Stir only until large lumps disappear so as not to activate the gluten. Willy, give Michael's buckwheat pancakes a try. That might be exactly what you seek.

    There's a place here in San Francisco that is such a total Roadfood type of place called Orphan Andy's on 17th Street at the intersection of Market and Castro, which is nearly always open. Great pancakes (try the "Big 2" breakfast) and wonderful burgers, plus the best people-watching in the Castro.

    I used to love Howard Johnson's pancakes. So big they would take up the entire plate. I also liked their blueberry Toastees.

    I visited a place in a nearby East Tennessee town that served deep fried pancakes. It added a different dimension to the taste. You could get them plain, with onions, with veggies, with chocolate, with cheese, with bacon or sausage or whatever. I got one plain and I got one with onions and peppers.

    Both were great. I had one with real maple syrup and the other with cream cheese.

    We have a local place called " The Pancake House" and they have the best that I have eaten. They keep a big tureen of warm syrup and bring you a little ceramic pitcher full of the syrup with their pancakes and will gladly refill it. They have all kinds to choose from including buckwheat. Makes me want pancakes, but they close at 2:00 each day!
