i just made oatmeal pancakes from Deborah madison's book, and it was awesome.
I have to admit, I like oatmeal pancakes even better than the traditional ones (and i dont like oatmeal), which imho could use some textural assitance...the cake thingie just doesn't offer enough bite for me.
Before this, my favorite pancake was the korean kimchi pancake, which i still have to learn to make. Well, that and scallion pancake.
This makes me think, there must be other pancakes there that are hot, chewy, filling, and not too difficult to cook.
