what can be made into a pancake?

if it can be pureed and made into batter, i will make a pancake out of it! these are just a few of my IVOP (international vegan house of pancake) faves. featured above is my most recent experiment from xmas: roasted butternut squash and apple pancakes. this was a nice seasonal pancake. i'll post the recipe once i tweak it a bit.
these were the stuffed ones from vegan MOFO 2010. the one above was filled with cinnamon struesel.
also stuffed from vegan mofo 2010. i filled that one with a nice quincey kitchen sink compotey thing. there is definitely a learning curve to stuffed pancakes. i'll have to do a vlog on that sometime. once i find the damned video camera!
let us not forget my own creation: the magic cookie bar pancake. i entered this one in a contest and lost. i was robbed, i tell you--ROBBED! one bite of these pancakes and you'll be doing commercials for diabetic supplies right along with wilford brimley.
i made these when i first went vegan. i think maybe the recipe was from VWAV? i thought, hey--do peaches and chocolate go together? yep.
coconut pancakes with pineapple sauce from VWAV during my first year as a vegan.

Wow, those are some fluffy looking pancakes! What's your secret...mine never look that good!

I second the fluffy question! How do you get them (especially the first two pics) to be so fluffy? Mine are usually flat and moist in the middle, which I hate!

the secret to fluffiness is to not really overstir the ingredients. leavening helps! plus, keeping the dry/wet separate until the last minute is really crucial. i use a 1/3 or 1/2 measuring cup to evenly distribute the batter. the second pancake looks super fluffy because it's stuffed. with stuffed pancakes you have to be patient because they take longer to cook. if you don't you'll be eating raw batter, and that's kind of gross.
