Plain pancakes or pancakes with flavor?

I love pancakes. I like plain pancakes topped with butter and syrup. it's the best way to start your day. Sometimes, I experiment a little. I try to sprinkle chocolate chips on my pancake and the result is amazing. The chocolate flavor makes the pancake more addictive. it gives a little jolt to your normal pancake that butter and syrup is no longer necessary. I also read that some people mixes blueberry ont their pancakes. I surely would like to try that one. How about you? How do you like your pancakes in the morning?

Hello arystine. One word for you... IHOP! I travel to suppliers a lot and sometimes it feels great if the company picks up my tab when I eat. IHOP is one of the places I frequent to for breakfast. I just have days that I crave for pancakes. Like you, I like the chocolate chip kind. Or the plain ones and I spread peanut butter over it. Hmmm...

Or you could try the McGriddles from McDonald's. It's just like the McMuffin, but instead of English biscuits, they have pancake like bread, with syrup already mixed in. And it comes with your favorite egg or sausage. Hmmm... you're making me hungry.

It merely depends on my mood. If I feel like I'm gaining weight lately, I would stick to plain pancakes. But if not, I would love to have pancake with grated apple and cinammon. Sometimes plain pancake is good to mix with fresh strawberries and banana topped with syrup. If I dont have enough time I would prepare french toast rather than pancake, somehow it tastes the same.

Ohmygod, I love apple and cinnamon. I haven't tried what you suggested, though. You bet am gonna try it soon. Thanks!

I like pancakes. But I dont like them if they are too thick. I like the traditional ones with syrup and butter, but sometimes I put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and shower it with chocolate syrup. Or I grate some cheese on top of it and pour a little sweet thick condensed milk on top of it to make it sweet. Have you tried that ?

That's a nice suggestion. I haven't tried putting grated cheese on top of pancakes. Sounds delicious. Thanks for the advice. :-)

I love pancakes! I admit I like them even without any topping, but I prefer to add whipped cream and chocolate syrup. That's the best combination ever for me! Also I like to put banana slices on it, or any other kind of fruit as long as the taste goes well with pancakes.

I prefer my pancakes plain and drizzled with syrup. I had tried putting banana in pancakes but it didn't turn out how I like it. My favorite brand of pancakes is Aunt Jemima and syrup has to be Ms. Buttersworth. I do sometimes put melted butter on my pancakes too.

I like pancakes both ways. We put blueberries in the sometimes and sometimes chocolate chips. I agree that when you put chocolate chips in them that they don't really need butter and syrup. I bought this muffin mix at walmart that had a recipe on the back that you could make pancakes out of them instead of muffins. Last weekend we had triple berry pancakes, blue berry and chocolate chips. They were really good.

I like pancakes too mixed with butter and chocolate, sometimes I prefer fruit syrup to add the great taste. I love it with my hot milk early in the morning upon getting up from bed.
