I know they have them in Aussie (Not UK but used to be) but they prefer them to be a savory dish rather than sweet.

So you call American style pancakes 'crepes' and French style crepes 'crepes'. How does anyone know which one you are talking about?

Andy, I guess that is kind of like in certain areas of this country where they all any type of soda a Coke. By you and me if you order a Coke you get a Coke-a-Cola, but other places if you order a Coke you then need to let them know what kind of soda you really want

Yes, Bigdaddy, I would recognise such dish to be of the savoury type. Crepes (as I prefer to call them because I spent a lot of my early years in Provencial France) are thin, lace-like, whereas the thicker ones we in the UK do not see very often.

Bigdaddy, my tummy says it like to try a couple of your fine savoury pancake recipes.

No, I wasn't contradicting the OP. I was merely stating that in the UK, pancakes are usually recognised as being like French crepes. The American pancake I am now informed is completely different. So, aye, one learns something new every day.

Bon Appetite, Monsieur.

What do you guys do?

I buy the pancake mix, add a few eggs and some vanilla. The Vanilla is
a key to great tasting pancakes.

GREAT PANCAKE RECIPE

1 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
2 1/2 cups milk
3 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup flour
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp. pure vanilla

Mix oats and milk, set aside for 5 minutes.
Mix in rest of ingredients and stir well with a whisk.

I usually make ahead and put in fridge overnight. Stir and add a bit more milk to make consistency of a fairly thick pudding.

I cook them on a grill at 360-370 F. lightly brushed with some butter. Or you may use a non stick fry pan lightly coated with butter between batches. Just do NOT let the butter burn from having your heat too high.

Maple/Yogurt Sauce

1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt

Combine syrup and yogurt and serve over cooked pancakes.

Any leftovers are good spread with peanut butter and covered with sliced bananas....yum
