I can't get enough Pancakes!

Cooking Pancakes never seemed so interesting to me before I started working at home.  I have been finally be able to appreciate cooking for my family  the way I did cooking professionally.  So I have been exploring all that I can about pancakes.  I have tried many different ways to make pancakes since I started cooking with my mom.  We would make them from scratch and we made them from a box.  Both store bought mixes and from scratch recipes are good for their own reason.  I prefer from scratch because I am not cooking in bulk.  If I were making pancakes for brunch for my extended family I would purchase a pre-made mix.  So I can see why stores would advertise box mixes for pancakes, waffles, and other baking items.  Since baking is a science and if your recipe adherence isn't strict the product may not turn out correct.  Hence pancakes although they are pan cooked they are still made with a leavening agent which require the proper balance to work.
