I just use the boxed mix, but I call them flapjacks. It turns out flapjacks here are something completely different.

I use a digital thermometer to get the grill up to the right temperature so the first one comes out perfectly.
I also weigh the boxed mix with a digital scale to accurately measure out just one serving of pancakes.
They do come out better if the batter is just a little lumpy.

My basic version.   I rarely measure, just mix till it looks right. 

Pancakes scratch

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 egg, beaten lightly
1 ½ cups milk
2 tbsp butter, melted

Most of the time I use this though.  Once you get good at it, it impresses everyone and it's just flat better.

Souffle le atterrissage à plat

Ingredients
•   Batter:
•   4 egg whites
•   2 egg yolks
•   1/3 cup wheat flour
•   1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
•   2 3/4 tablespoons milk
•   Splash of vanilla extract
•   4 tablespoons granulated sugar
•   Lemon juice
•   Oil, for pan
•   To garnish:
•   Whipped cream
•   Maple syrup
•   Powdered sugar
•   Mint
•   Mixed berries
Instructions
1.   Beat egg whites until soft peaks form, then add granulated sugar and continue to beat until combined.
2.   In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining batter ingredients. Fold one-third of the meringue into the batter at a time.
3.   Oil a frying pan over low heat, then cook about 1 cup of the batter at a time. Cook for 6 minutes, then flip it over when slightly browned.
4.   Continue cooking for about 15 minutes until cooked through.

They are huge fluffy thick monsters.

Enjoy. <3

Pancakes with bacon and eggs?, my mind is officially blown!, I'm honestly struggling with the concept of this, do you have pictures?

I'm asking as you're a "British Person", you obviously don't mean what we call "pancakes", and every "American Style" pancake I've ever eaten or seen on the shelves is sugary, I'm on a quest for knowledge here.

Ok I'm editing this again as my wife has just told me to ask "what does she do with the raisins", good point.

A blueberry pancake with bacon & scrambled eggs, a taste sensation no doubt.

I've never gone the sourdough route and haven't run out of baking powder or yeast in recent times. I've long enjoyed pancakes at least once a week, usually made with whole wheat flower. Awhile back I got an idea from Guy Fieri's Diners & Dives program that gave me a fun variation on the usual-- oven pancakes. It's actually easier to do that the usual kind. You mix enough batter for one serving and pour it into a pre-heated, oiled 8 inch cast iron skillet. Bake it at 375 or so for 20 minutes. It's basically the same way you bake cornbread.

I usually slice mine in half horizontally to put stuff in and on it (I always use more than just the usually syrup, but that's a matter of taste).

Incidentally, it's a good idea to let your batter sit for about 20 minutes between mixing and cooking to let it rise.
