Friday Five: Pancakes!

Something "light and fluffy" from the Revgals this morning, on the subject of PANCAKES!

1. Scratch or mix? Buttermilk or plain?

I am the very proud and lucky partner of a husband who makes fantastic pancakes and waffles from scratch. He has a few different recipes that he uses, including one that was included with the heart-shaped waffle iron we got for our wedding, and a terrific recipe for whole-wheat waffles that we found online.

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

Usually pure and simple, but last time WH made waffles, he made them with chocolate flakes in them, and they were AWESOME!

3. For breakfast or for dinner?

We've done both! Usually for breakfast, but they make such a good option for dinner sometimes when you can't think of anything else.

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

We love real maple syrup on our pancakes, but when I was a little girl, a friend introduced me to sugar and lemon juice on pancakes and waffles, which is also lovely!

5. Favorite pancake restaurant?

I don't honestly eat pancakes in restaurants ever because they're never as good as I get them at home. We do have a couple of breakfast places that we frequent with some regularity, and I'm sure that they all make good pancakes!

My husband made pancakes this morning -- he is the champion pancake maker in the house. And I definitely agree about restaurant pancakes and pancakes for supper. Have a fine new year!

My husband is also the chief pancake and waffle maker. The chocolate flakes sound wonderful. We'll have to try it!

Shalom said...

Husband-making-pancakes definitely seems like a trend in RevGal world. (We do a sort of combo deal. Mostly he's in charge of bacon.) The chocolate flakes sound GREAT. Did that make a mess in the waffle iron? And where can one get these flakes?

Hi Shalom!

Nope, no mess in the waffle iron! I buy them just in my local grocery store in the baking goods aisle near the chocolate chips.

They're just that little bit more subtle than full-on chocolate chips... YUM!

Sophia said...

Ooh, I need to try chocolate flakes--I do love chocolate chip pancakes but sometimes, as last night, they can be a bit of an overdose.

Julie said...

Sugar and lemon juice on pancakes is intriguing. I will have to try that!

Jan said...

My husband often made pancakes when the kids were young. Lemon juice and sugar sounds good--something we'll have to try!
