Any good pancake recipes?

When I was a student teacher, I used to visit some Canadian friends early in the morning when they would make buckwheat pancakes which we would have with maple syrup. It was a sad day when they moved back to Canada and I cannnot remember the recipe for making them but they were so good.
There are so many recipes for different kinds of pancakes.
Here's an easy one that is fool-proof!
8oz of sifted plain flour.
2 eggs
1 pint of milk
Pinch of salt.
Place flour and salt in a mixing bowl.
Make a well in the centre of the sifted flour and break the eggs into it.
Add a drop of milk and start to mix with a fork or a hand whisk.
Gradually mix in more flour from the sides until mixture becomes thicker, then add more of the milk. Keep adding the milk each time the mixture thickens until half the milk is used and all the flour is mixed in with the milk.
Leave to stand for half an hour.
Then add the rest of the milk. Leave for another half hour before cooking.
To cook use a flat wide frying pan and add a drop of rice bran oil.
Heat until it smokes slightly.
Add approximately two serving spoonfuls of mixture to the hot oil.
When mixture starts to bubble use a spatula to loosen the sides and then flip or toss to cook the other side.
Keep the pan hot until all the pancakes are cooked. It is ok to add a drop more oil each time but keep the oil to a minimum.
There are many fillings both sweet and savoury but lemon and sugar or honey are always popular.
Agave nectar or maple syrup can be used instead of sugar.
If you have any good ideas for fillings or a fantastic recipe for different kinds of pancakes, why not share it with us?
