To add some ompf to your pancakes, simply replace the milk called for in the recipe (even if using Bisquick) with buttermilk. Then add 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (even to Bisquick!) for every 12-14 pancakes. Our family's wild about them!
Such small recipe changes, but huge taste and texture differences...light, fluffy, touch of spice...mmm. And please don't forget the real maple syrup.
