    Pancakes... yea or nea?

    This morning Mom made a huge plate of pancakes before asking if I wanted any. I hate eating pancakes and have not cooked/ordered them in over 25 years. She made a huge deal over it saying "I've never heard of someone that doesn't eat pancakes".

    Am I the only one that won't eat pancakes?

    I love pancakes. I don't make them myself, but I'll order them in a restaurant if nothing else on the menu sounds good.

    At some point in my elementary school days (5th or 6th grade) I developed an aversion to pancakes.

    This went on for about the next 5 years or so. My mom would make me try a bite, and I used to chew and not be able to even swallow. I had to sit and look at the pancakes (usually on the weekend) until the pancakes were so cold that nobody would eat them.

    Then one day while I was in high school, I was at a friends house (I had a serious crush on her) and she invited me to stay for dinner. Her mom made pancakes... ever since then, I have no problem with pancakes.

    But, I can definitely understand an aversion to pancakes.

    A related point, I have always loved french toast... and mom couldn't understand at the time how I could hate pancakes so much and yet love french toast.

    I like them so much I just finished off a stack of pancakes before logging on here.
    Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes. They were delicious. I even have some left over for breakfast tomorrow.

    I love 'em, but can fully understand when people don't. Cooked the wrong way they taste like sh*t.

    I love French Toast. I use a fresh baguette and Grand Marnier in the egg dip. It's to die for.

    Pancakes heck yes! Waffles even better!

    My favorite pancakes are whole wheat with oats and cinnamon. Top it with maple syrup and life is swell.

    try cutting down on the eggs - I think it makes them a bit lighter and taste better.

    I have 2 boys and every weekend SpongeDad gets up and makes one of the holy trinity of breakfast: pancakes; waffles or french toast. Recently added crepes, but they're a bit harder.

    We go through a lot of mapple syrup.

    I really don't use a specific recipe, but I use 2 eggs(and less milk+ OJ) when making GM french toast.

    pancakes, french toast, waffles... they're all good.

    if you don't like what your mother makes, then maybe it's time to find a place of your own.

    I like pancakes as long as they're actually cooked from scratch, not pancake batter in a box.

    Thanks for the advice, but I'm only visiting them on my vacation.

    Are you still in TN?

    Pancakes are good, but then again...I'm not picky.

    Eh, pancakes, not a fan. There was a time where I wouldn't eat them at all. I might eat 'em sometimes. At Costco they have pancakes in a can(like whip cream cans) it makes pancakes fun.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    I second this one. Bisquick pancakes are gross, to mee.

    I just made a batch of blueberry pancakes this morning from a recipe I've been using for about 5 years or so now. It uses graham ******* crumbs in addition to flower. Yummy!

    My 4 year old son and I make pancakes every weekend. Nice and messy from scratch.
    It is one of his favorite father son activities second only to biking.

    There is just something really wrong about that...

    For French toast, yeah, gotta use eggs. I was talking about pancakes.

    OJ in FT sounds good. My wife started putting orange or, even better, lemon zest in the egg/milk dip and that tastes really good.

    If it's charged with N2O, I can see how that would be fun.

    That I don't really like them? Mainly, I hate that they get soggy with syrup. I don't really like the texture. Above that it tastes like sweetened bread and it is just blah.

    Anybody else get Chris Cakes at their biking events. They do not taste the best, not bad but not great, but having them tossed to you from 20 feet away makes it better.
