I love a tall stack of pancakes every so often. As a kid, we had an electric pancake / waffle iron, that opened up flat to make either of the delish breakfast items. My mother was a big user of Bisquick for the basics and I followed her lead for quite a while until I discovered making pancakes & waffles from ‘scratch’ is a cinch! I never looked back! As my kids grew, we usually had a brunch each Sunday and waffles were on the menu often. We made the batter, which called for buttermilk and whipped egg whites. Divine waffles made in a stovetop ( we have gas ) waffle iron. Can’t be beat~
To properly top off that tall hearty stack of pancakes, I would place a dab of butter in between each layer and then prepare for syrup. Everyone has their technique, I use a knife to cut a square all the way through the stack to provide a well to trap and disperse the syrup. We use REAL MAPLE Syrup. I can’t use that imitation stuff anymore, no offense to anyone’s tastes! So I am getting to the purpose of this post…. ditch the imitation syrup, save your pennies, use sparingly but USE real maple syrup… read on!
