  1. THE MIX: In an 8-cup container, stir together flour, Bisquick, sugar and creamer. Cover tightly. Refrigerate mix to use within 3 months.
  2. Makes 7 cups of mix.
  3. TO USE: Into blender, put egg, 7-up and prepared pancake mix. Blend at high speed until smooth, 1 minute. Allow 1/3 cup batter for each 6" pancake.
  4. THE SYRUP: Combine the first four ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally, until the mixture comes to a full boil. Let it boil for 7 minutes. Turn the heat off and let the syrup cool for 15 minutes. Add the maple flavoring and stir. When completely cool, transfer the syrup to a covered plastic or glass container.
  5. SYRUP VARIATION: For syrup with a butter flavor, just add 3 tablespoons of butter to the mixture before heating. For a lighter syrup, use a sugar substitute instead of the regular sugar.
