Ode to Pancakes (and how I love thee)

Ode to Pancakes and how I love thee,
Your mounds of goodness are a sight to be seen.

Fluffy and light,

Tasty and fulfilling,

It's all I can do to save you for an occasional treat.

Morning or afternoon,
Day or night,
Late or early,
Pancakes are always welcome in my belly.

Syrup or butter,
fruit or whipped cream,

Even with yogurt or
fruit,
Pancakes are a sweet culinary dream.


You can tear them,
You can slather them in syrup,

Or you can cover them in butter,

You can even freeze them for later.


Beware jealous eyes and tongues!

Be wary and aware,

For whoever tries to take my pancakes,

Even a tiny little bite or minuscule crumb,

Will wind up with a fork in their eyeball and syrup in their lungs.


You can make pancakes with blueberries,

pumpkin, apples and cinnamon or even cheesecake,
You can even make wheat pancakes,

though that isn't much fun at all.

Whether you dine on chocolate pancakes,

blueberry, strawberry or just plain,
Pancakes are truly the king of breakfast,
no scone, crepe or biscuit could compare. (Well, maybe a really fluffy biscuit.)

I've had blueberry and pumpkin,

Thick and thin,

Eaten them in cafes, fine restaurants and my own kitchen,

But there is one type of pancake that is ideal, no other can ever compare.

A peanut butter pancake with jelly syrup--
Try it if you dare!

when we were all little my mom use to make pancakes, i think she was trying to make them thin like crepes but they never got that thin but we didn't care! she'd make the cakes and spread strawberry jam on them roll them up and sprinkle powdered sugar on them and we would gobble them up! that's still my favorite way to eat pancqakes!!

Oh wow! I have been craving pancakes for weeks now. Not waffles, but pancakes smothered in maple syrup. Now its going to be worse.

What a wonderful ode to pancakes Duckie! You will have to try British pancakes sometime! They are delicious just spread with a bit of jam and rolled up like a cigar. (they are quite flat and like a crepe) I like them with a squirt of lemon juice and sprinkled with sugar.
