Everyone knows about putting butter and syrup on pancakes and the warmth and goodness of that. Here are some different ideas:

1. Pie Fillings such as cherry, apple or blueberry with whipped cream. 2. Make a large 6" pancake and lay a fried egg and a strip or two of bacon and roll-up. 3. Add ingredients to the pancake batter such as; Plumped hydrated raisins, apricots, cranberries, cherries or other favorite dried fruits, blueberries, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, and for a really funny pancake for kids, add Cheerio cereal! 4. Fresh fruit on top with a small dollop of sour cream or a mixtue of 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 instant vanilla pudding. Dust with powdered sugar. 5. Lay a pineapple ring down on the griddle and pour the pancake batter over it, after it comes off the griddle, use the butter and syrup and add a cherry and whipped cream for instant "Pineapple Pan Cake Cake" and lots of family cheers!
