I know I do.
Sorry, Waffles > Pancakes everytime.
Had to be said.
I also like Pancakes though.
Waffles are naught but the spawn of Baal's sons. God eats pancakes, and only pancakes, for breakfast. :twisted:
(Though, he often indulges in a glass of orange juice or a mug of coffee as well.)
I love to have some buckwheat pancakes. But I only do pancake loading when I'm going to play a big match.
$4 all you can eat at Denny's is an often-used form of carb loading for me.
So do we have a strict definition of a pancake?
There are a wondrous diversity of such batters.
I prefer homemade pancakes: cheap, quick, and made with the sweat of your labor.
Literally, since I want to keep water costs down.
I think (1a) is the best definition for our purposes, but if you want to discuss imitation leather, feel free to do so. It just doesn't sound very tasty.
Kiss my grits. You're losing config, MD. Team10 has it right. Great pancakes are few and far between. Most people are stuffing their faces with garbage worthy of Mrs. Butterwortless or Log Cabin. A good Dutch pancake is a different story though.
I've never had a Dutch pancake. Could you, kind sir, possibly describe to me the solidified ambrosia I imagine such a species of pancake to be?
I meant a culinary definiton, of course, so I take it you don't have one.
So what is your recipe for such or are you going to cite the Oxford dictionary again?
My dear sir, definition (1a) is a culinary definition; although, I must admit, it is not provided by any peer-reviewed source of culinary prowess. Perhaps, however, we can stick by it?
"A thin flat cake of batter, fried on both sides in a pan."
There is, of course, more if we are to limit pancakes to the best breakfast food in all the world; yet does not this definition suffice for a thread created by mere mortals, incapable of understanding fully the complexity of the messianic fast breaking?
A culinary definition would specify how thin, what kind of batter and other matters. So you can't get this out of a dictionary. Maybe Larousse Gastronomique would do it, but not the OED.
Why don't we just start with your basic pancake recipe - ingredients and procedure?
Why are you being so aggressive? :neutral:
Chillax. It's a forum.
I've asked you a simple question several times and all you want to do is act like I do not know a dictionary definition of the word 'pancake'.
If you don't intend to give your marvellous recipe then what is the point of the thread?
Pancakes. That simple, ain't it?
So you buy your pancakes out or have others make them for you, that's fine.
I know for a fact God eats bacon.
God used to. And then he saw PETA. He now no longer eats meat. A shame, really.
Surely God would not eat anything religiously prohibited?
When I lived in Cincy, a chain called First Watch made a pancake called Cashew Blue...cornmeal pancake with cashews=heaven. I use my own homemade recipe now. Also a big fan of Banana walnut and buttermilk with just about anything. I made orange pancakes with pomegranate reduction on Saturday and the wife and kids loved it...1 tbsp orange rind with 1/2 cup OJ and buttermilk for the batter. Good stuff.
I used to love pancakes, even make them --- is there such a thing as an egg-less gluten free pancake ?
I know that you have been vegetarian. Are you now vegan?
I usually eat a yogurt-like dish with many fresh berries, cereal, or a vegetable omelette with beets and such vegetables, but I would take quality pastries over pancakes.
Mmm, pancakes. I like to put a little vanilla in the batter for a tantalizing heady aroma as the pancakes cook.
Now he eats people.
how did I know we were going to end up on opposite sides of this?
No no. I don't eat eggs. I have milk.
But i am intolerant to wheat/gluten, so asking.
that seems like a lot of calories ! But, GOD, it looks delicious !
I love me a stack of buttermilk pancakes with sweet butter, blackberry and raspberry syrup, etc. Good times!
The circle is the most mathematically perfect shape, and hence I am partial to pancakes and pizzas.
Does that mean you like to enter bakeries and beat up everybody in sight?
I'm myself lactose intolerant. About 50% of my dreams involve me beating Dolly Parton on the chest.
ppl prefer various berries and nuts on their pancakes.
I prefer bacon bits.
btw, why hasn't anyone mention French Toast?
Malted milk waffles and wings
In Ireland, they make something pretty good called a boxty.
Is it a potato pancake? Need a firm, dense potato. Prefer red potatoes
They go well with sour cream and chives and are often served with smoked salmon.
Odd, had these along with cornmeal pancakes way BITD. Some folks call it Johnny Cake.
Funny the OP started a thread on pancakes. Guess what's the featured article in the Food Section of the Washington Post today:
Curious, how thick or thin do you like your pancakes?
For me, pancakes should be very thin with many berries on top.
Monica Lewinsky & "Gummy Bear" Macanudos?
That's a crepe! Something Ricky Bobby wouldn't touch.
Ricky Bobby likes waffles, http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7040/6974835583_a0af347a62_z.jpg
He eats people who eat waffles. It's punishment.
That reminds me of блины (I don't know how you spell the word in English), the Russian super-thin pancakes. Especially when their filled with bananas and chocolate syrup. Delicious.
People stuffed with waffles.
I love pancakes grrr. Ihop has the best!
