What unusual things do you put in pancakes?

I used to make pancakes with cinnamon and shredded carrots in the batter. They were always a hit!

How about you?

The most adventurous I've been with pancakes is to add blueberries. But I do have an on-line friend who does a lot of innovative things with them.

He uses a whole grain pancake mix for his pancakes, and adds various vegetables or fruits. Corn, cut from a cob left over from last nights dinner, seems to be one of his favorites. He tops that one with margarine and a poached egg.
Sometimes he puts dried fruit, such as raisins or chopped plums, in the mix, and then tops the pancake with applesauce or cooked apple slices.

Sauteed apples and cinnamon,pumpkin filling,spices and toasted pecans,orange peel and spices and toasted nuts,blueberries or one of my favorites black berries,bananas with a little banana extract to make them really banana.I also like to top pancakes with fresh fruit and fruit yogurt with syrup.Fruit yogurt is really good on pancakes with a little syrup.

You took my idea jpmcgrew! I too will occasionally use stewed or sautéed apples. Then top with cinnamon! Wow, I’m wanting pancakes now.

Sometimes I'll cook an egg in the middle of the pancake. That's fun.

Some others include:

Allspice
Blueberries
Vanilla
