Classics never die. That's why they're classics. I have poured breakfast batter into a pan on numerous occasions (although not as numerous as certain family members would like). I have made pancakes, pikelets and hotcakes.
But the best version is - and this is only my opinion - crÍpes!
CrÍpes are the fashionistas of the pancake world: they're French, thin and not-so-sweet. Sprinkled with white sugar and with tangy lemon juice squeezed over them, they - like fashion - don't last very long. In fact, the hardest part of making crÍpes is summoning the restraint not to gobble them up as soon as they're out of the pan.
