Try these buckwheat pancakes in honor of Almanzo Wilder from the Little House on the Prairie series. They're a nice change from regular white flour pancakes and the orange butter is a delicious accompaniment, with or without maple syrup on the side.

Ricotta Pancakes
Ricotta Pancakes

These are easier to flip than your standard buttermilk batch, have a delicately crisp exterior, and are thicker and moister without seeming raw in the middle. They were very light, whether you use plain old supermarket cheese in a tub or fresh Italian ricotta.

Sweet Potato Pancake
Sweet Potato Pancake

Peeled, shredded, and cooked sweet potato is cooked in a non-stick skillet until soft and slightly browned. In the meantime, whip up the batter. When the potatoes are done it's pancake time. While great with the obligatory butter and maple syrup, the flavors beg for something a tad different. Perhaps peanut butter? Any other ideas?

Gluten Free Pancakes
Gluten Free Pancakes

This recipe doesn't use buttermilk. For some pancake lovers that might be blasphemous. But let us assure you that they're still light and fluffy even without the slight tang of the buttermilk. And since they're gluten-free, they're nicely tender but don't fall apart under a heavy drizzle of syrup.

Santa Fe-Style Green Chile Pancakes
Santa Fe-Style Green Chile Pancakes

These savory pancakes are inspired by Nashville breakfast joint Pancake Pantry and their "Village Smithy COLO Sante Fe Cornmeal Pancakes." They take stone-ground cornmeal pancakes and fill them with cheddar cheese chunks, crispy bacon and roasted green chiles. Just a drizzle of maple syrup over the top adds a sticky sweetness, but the main garnish is a swirl of salsa and sour cream. If you prefer savory over sweet, these hit all the right notes.

Funfetti Pancakes
Funfetti Pancakes

Half of the word "pancake" is comprised of the word "cake"—that's a fact. Actually, to get really technical, it's slightly more than half. To bring more cake to the pan try these Funfetti Pancakes.

Lightly modifying a typical cake mix becomes a DIY pancake mix; the resulting pancakes are light and fluffy, but sweeter (and in this case, more colorful) than the typical griddle fare. Topping them with cake frosting seems like the only natural conclusion.

Kimchi Pancakes
Kimchi Pancakes

For kimchi lovers, there's very little that this spicy Korean cabbage doesn't improve. Take pancakes, for example. The batter is thick enough to stand up to lots of chopped kimchi and pork. Straight out of the pan these guys are porky, spicy, and garlicky, and it's hard to wait to eat them until they cool to a non-mouth-burning temperature.
