I use Bisquick for waffles. Pancakes I make with my late

Blueberry- frozen or fresh. Buckwheat every 3-4 years.

'regular' - but with more of a crunchy texture that what I usually get
at a diner.

Either real maple syrup-- or, I confess, Mrs. Butterworths. [though
every couple of years I'll just pour on the blackstrap molasses.]
I'll add some cinnamon and sugar sometimes. [probably ought to say I
*used* to-- haven't done that in years.]
A couple hours later, if there are leftover pancakes, I'll make a
jelly roll for a snack.
We stayed at a nice hotel in VT a couple weeks ago. The syrup they
served with breakfast was excellent. We asked at the desk if it was
local syrup and the girl said she thought it was from NY.
The next morning I asked the cook. He wouldn't tell me *where* it
was from, but assured me it was real maple - but not from Vermont.
