I have used Bisquick for years (so did my Mom). It is a wonderful product. The pancakes are the best I''ve ever eaten. These are some of the things I occassionally add: Cinnamon, Baco''s, chocolate chips, pecans, blueberries etc. I vary the toppings to go with the pancakes. Applesauce on cinnamon pancakes makes a wonderful Fall treat....Maple syrup or sliced bananas on pecan pancakes....warm blueberry sauce & whiiped topping on blueberry pancakes.
