    How do you like your pancakes?  Homemade or pre packaged from a box?  Served with fruit, plain, butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup, molasses, or pecan syrup!

      I love my pancakes crepelike filled with honeyed oranges and cream and topped with a spicy orange marmalade.   Those pancakes reminded me of the ones that I had at IHOP years ago.   Yum a milnillion times.

        Do you have a recipe for honeyed oranges? That sounds amazing.

          Navel oranges are the best ones to do this with.

          Remove the peeling from the orange and with a very sharp knife cut the orange into round slices.

          Lay your orange slices on a plate or serving dish and drizzle the orange slices with a good quality honey. Then sprinkle cinnamon over the oranges and you have wonderful honeyed oranges that you can use to garnish pancake or breakfast plates with and they are delicious.

      I like thin pancakes, rather than big fluffy cakey ones (IHOP style). Given the choice, I'd rather make crepes.

    I use a pat of buttter on top and I definitely prefer to use pure maple syrup much more than any other type of syrup. Although it can be a little pricey, it lasts a long time. Mixing the batter from a box mix like bisquick works well for me. It's fast and convenient. Sometimes I like to put sliced bananas into the batter. It comes out so delicious.

    I prefer homemade pancakes with butter and real maple syrup. If there's no real maple syrup, a second choice would be slathered with crunchy peanut butter and soaked in Aunt Jemima's maple syrup.

    Ooooh pancakes...I have to go with the homemade whole wheat version, drizzled generously with REAL maple syrup. Thin, crepe-like pancakes are delicious too. The thin Swedish pancakes with strawberry cream is what I order from IHOPS...
    Great, now I'm hungry.

    I like fluffy pancakes with crispy edges, still hot from the griddle. Top them with butter, peanut butter and real maple syrup and you have a real breakfast. A few strips of bacon on the side doesn't hurt, either!

    I like my pancakes with blueberries put right into the pancake batter and then put on the griddle with real maple syrup and real butter.

    I admit I'm not a huge pancake person, but seeing all these posts for different recipes and serving ideas is making me really hungry and wanting to try them all. smile

    Pancakes aren't necessarily my favorite breakfast, but my husband is a huge fan. I finally found a recipe that even I like and wrote a hub about it a couple of weeks ago. The key is lemon and milk (a buttermilk substitute) and cornmeal. The cornmeal gives the pancakes texture and crispy edges. The recipe calls for a lot of baking powder, which makes the pancakes light and fluffy. I prefer to serve them with butter and homemade syrup. I would prefer real maple syrup, but since it doesn't exist in Peru I settle for homemade syrup. :  )
