Pancakes are quick and simple to make, using ingredients likely found in your kitchen. If you are short on time, however, or are missing a vital ingredient such as flour or eggs, a ready made pancake mix can make the process even easier. Whether you favor a homemade pancake mix or a store-bought version, adding sugar to the mix will make the pancakes sweeter. Vanilla and fruit also can be added for extra flavor.
