oh good, I'm glad you will try it min, but why the green face? wink
by the way you can also have your butter-and-maple-syrup pancakes with sausages, that's another great combo - now, no green faces please, but if they had a "i feel fat" smiley that would be appropriate!

Sorry bub, that combo wouldn't stay in long enough for me to need a fat-face smiley!  lol

Re: Pancakes !

Minerva, you are pulling our collective leg, no? Never had sausages or bacon and pancakes with maple syrup? Sweet and savory like turkey and cranberry sauce or curry and chutney, leg o lamb and mint jelly....barbeque sauce???!!! Its not that strange, and in US its traditional. The sausages or bacon are on the side, get just a little stickiness on their edges, or not if your careful.... it could be a whole new thing for you, maybe wait till your feeling calm and even bored   shocked  yikes  might be a while.

Re: Pancakes !

Don't worry Minerva, I have never had those american style pancakes either, although will give them a go sometime. It is not as common it seems in the UK or Australia to have the savoury/sweet style pancake like in the US.

Re: Pancakes !

I first tried the combination when we were in the US for a holiday in 2004.  Before that, I was rather against the idea - but we found this superb diner in Jackson Hole, Wyoming which made the most delicious buckwheat pancakes slathered in maple syrup with crispy bacon on the side  dribble   It smelled so good whilst waiting for a seat that we just had to try them when we finally sat down, and I've been making them at home ever since (although it's never quite the same or quite as good).

But I still reckon there's nothing much that can beat a proper British pancake drizzled with lemon juice and sugar  thumbsup

Re: Pancakes !

I regret that we didn't try fairy cakes and British pancakes on the short trips there.  Next time we'll be sure to ask all of you what and where.  I love Brittany crepes with butter, dipped into a big bowl of cafe au lait, or buckwheat crepes (galletes) with savory fillings, American style with sweet or with a side of bacon, multi-grain, buckwheat, I make them with many fillings.

Some things I might add to American style pancakes and this would be a typical jet-lag dinner:

- pumpkin and walnuts or pecans
- blueberries or other berries
- almonds or walnuts and bananas or apples
- cinnamon and raisins
- fresh squeezed orange juice, dash of Cointreau

Flavored maple syrups:  melt butter and maple syrup with:  blueberries, strawberries, orange juice, blackberries.  Using these helps cut down a bit on how much butter and syrup you need to use.

I love Korean savory pancakes, but can't find a recipe that really matches what I had there.

Re: Pancakes !

Buckwheat pancakes were a favorite of my fathers MsP , He had a French Aunt ( I think ) who used to make them for him , as far as I know , he always savory fillings in the Buckwheat Pancakes.

The thin Crepes are more what I make , ou are right , buttered pancakes are good , one of my favorites , may be I should try them with some Cafe au lait .. good suggestion.

Re: Pancakes !

You guys are driving me nuts. What the heck is a svoury pancake? I'm familiar with pancakes (we know them as flapjacks) and crepes thanks to the Quebecois. But I now have to try these things.  And what do they go with?
