I find that the English pancake batter is much more versatile - I guess mostly because it's unleavened, and isn't as sweet as American pancakes. They're even good all by themselves. And ooh! I can now flip pancakes! In the air! Without a spatula! Hee. I'm so proud. :)
I made about two dozen pancakes with sweet-stuff breakfasty filling. I had so much batter left over that tonight I'm going to try making savoury ones, with creamy brocolli-cauliflower-cheese filling, and leeks if I can find any in the garden. Hm. Yummy yummy pancakes.
