Friday Five: Pancakes

Last week Sally gave us a beautiful, spiritually reflective Friday Five, so it's time for something light and fluffy (literally). It's inspired by the fact that as I write this my dear spouse TechnoGuy, with the assistance of daughter Ladybug, is making a batch of chocolate chip pancakes with two Christmas presents. One is the Knott's Berry Farm mix which came along with jam, boysenberry syrup, and biscuit mix from my aunt (we ended up with two sets, since my parents passed theirs on to avoid sweet and carb-y temptation). The other is the large size Black and Decker electric skillet he was thrilled that I got him online -- our trusty wedding present normal size one still works at going on 20 years, but the Teflon is getting worn, and he wanted more cooking space. So pull up a chair to the kitchen table and tell us all about your pancake preferences.

1. Scratch or mix? Buttermilk or plain?

2. Pure and simple, or with additions cooked in?

3. For breakfast or for dinner?

4. Preferred syrup or other topping? How about the best side dish?

5. Favorite pancake restaurant?

Bonus: Any tasty recipes out there, for pancakes or other special breakfast dishes? Bring 'em on!

As always, let us know in comments if you play. Post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment using the following formulation in the comment box: <a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a> For a complete how-to, click here.

  16. Seethroughfaith beat me to it. Having the largest population of Finnish folk outside of Finland, our community is HUGELY into Finnish pancakes, which are more like crepes in that that they are thin, stacked high and totally yummy.

    They are my faves, but I've been off wheat for so long I barely remember what they taste like. I always liked them best with syrup.
