Default Pancakes!

So it's that time of year again. What do you like on your pancakes? Or maybe you have crÍpes if you're on the Continent?

I had a chocolate one, and a rapsberry jam one, yummy!

Um...no pancakes for me, thanks.
I will have a waffle, though.

I'm going to make pancakes for supper tonight. I usually just make plain buttermilk pancakes and top them with maple syrup or raspberry jam.

I hate maple syrup, so it's chocolate or cream for me. Or Jam. Or lemon juice. I have no idea if I'm even going to have pancakes today, mind you.

I like to eat pancakes once a month or every two months orso, but not really frequently as I'm not that fond of it - I like cheese pancakes or plain syrup or powder sugar ones, and ice cream if I'm feeling adventurous Never tried chocolate though. I hate American pancakes.

I prefer savoury crÍpes to pancakes, to be honest. Nothing beats an egg, ham and cheese crÍpe...

Seconded, perhaps without the ham, which I seriously dislike

I love pancakes and get a hankering for them now and again. Some maple syrup will do for me.

it's all about the maple syrup. REAL maple syrup, though, none of this "table syrup" crap.

I always eat pancakes (apparently the type we have in Germany is called British pancake. The German Pancake is an american thing, it seems - Talk about cultural confusion, eh? ) with Apple Sauce and sugar sprinkled over it, then rolled to a roll (Well, duh.) and eaten.

While in France, we had a CrÍpe every day for lunch. The first week I ate it with Nutella like I alsways used to, until I couldn't see any more Nutella without being disgusted. After that, I ate CrÍpe with Butter and sugar. I think I'll eat that last one in the future too, when we buy CrÍpes.

Oh and I forgot raisins, they're very tasty if you manage to get the into the pancake properly (for some reason it's not very tasty when done wrong, and it's not easy), then put a little powder sugar on top and it's lovely.

Simmer raisins in a little sugar water to soften them up, and they're a billion times better in things. (They're better as is when eaten by themselves, though)

(The sugar isn't really needed, but it certainly doesn't hurt )
