I don't usually put syrup on my pancakes, but when I do, there is also butter. I usually eat them with butter alone, or with peanut butter.

Don't worry, we're not all crazy over here. I'm Canadian, but the idea of pancakes with bacon is still totally gross to me.

My grandma used to make the most amazing pancakes when I was a kid. They were really thin, and she would roll them up. Before rolling them she would put brown sugar, and lemon juice in the middle. If you have never had pancakes like that you are missing out.

Sounds more like a crep then a pancake.

Some sort of sweet jam. Strawberry, or maybe some applesauce.

also I don't know if you Brits have IHOP over there but we have this place that serves breakfast all day long.

IHOP menu

I'm not sure how I the IHOP actually is. I live in arguably the most American of all non-American cities (Toronto), and I haven't yet encountered an IHOP.

IHOP actually stands for the International House of Pancakes. Got shortened to IHOP similar to KFC.

No we don't have Ihop. Unlike the US the UK is not a country full of fast food outlets although it does look interesting maybe I could franchise to the UK. Also pancakes are meant to be eaten with Jam, preferably Strawberry with your afternoon tea. Saying that yesterdays pancakes fried in the morning with butter and bacon are just scrummy. Dam... I'm hungry now.

IHOP is a chain restaurant, not fast food.

Forget IHOP. I'm more of a Denny's and Village Inn guy. Also, I need to try Waffle House.

Yeah, except when I've had them it was powdered sugar with some type of strawberry jam I think. Anyways, I do believe this person was describing a crepe, which is a form of pancake, but still.

@WhiteLotus01 to further confuse. Every greasy spoon worth its salt in Michigan serves "potato pancakes" which are amazing with some sour cream.

When I eat pancakes, I found out that I like to put peanut butter and jelly on a chocolate pancake (without syrup, and sometimes with), if not, butter and syrup is fine, but I wouldn't call it a common thing for everyone. I learned to put butter on pancakes from my best friend when I used to hang around with his family a lot, I would agree that its overkill, but it is good.

For those that are saying it's awkward to eat bacon with pancakes, which I don't believe I've done much at all, is because pancakes are, or can be considered breakfast, and bacon can be as well, so like sausage, eggs, and hash browns, they go together. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes, so it's not like everyone here does the same thing.

As a self respecting Canadian, butter and syrup are essential. Add in bacon and eggs and now you've got somethin to tell your momma about.

Dude, no need to be so harsh, he made a perfectly reasonable post.

We live in the land of the Double Down. The country of more fast food restaurants and ice cream flavors than we can count. Overkill is 100% the name of our game when it comes to food. I, for one, am totally fine with that. I love being able to walk in a Wal-Mart and choose from 50 kinds of pizza. I love eating damn cookie dough out of a tube. I love that there is a building not 5 minutes away from me that only sells donuts!

On-topic, I'm a waffle man. Never much cared for pancakes, they fill me up too fast. If I do have some, syrup and butter is the way to go.

If you decide to eat pancakes, you've basically given up on life for that day anyway, so you might as well put some butter on there.

Screw butter. Pancakes are already terrible enough for you. Especially when you add maple syrup to them. But you *will* add real maple syrup to them, and no more. Anything less, and you're already dead.

Hmm, when I went to the UK it was littered with fast food joints. Maybe not as bad as in the US or here in Canada, but still a crapton of them. The whole "western" world is going to franchise hell sooner than later.... /cries

I'm American, and, I rarely eat pancakes, ( too doughy ) but when i do i eat them raw dog.

syrup is too sugary, and butter is too buttery.

That's how I eat them as well, when I eat them. No syrup or butter or honey or powdered sugar. Just pancakes.

I never eat pancakes for breakfast - they're usually a drunken treat and topped with caramelized Banana and Ice Cream.

As an American who enjoys a breakfast of Eggs, Bacon and Pancakes, the reason I like it is the big difference in taste and texture between pancakes and bacon. Maybe that's the reason others hate it but I love it. Although I prefer Waffles to Pancakes.

Bacon served with pancakes is weird? WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT? You guys are doing something wrong. Bacon goes with everything man. (I made thousands of typos to attempting to type all these sentences my brain just couldn't comprehend what was happening)

Also I syrup and butter my pancakes but never really notice the butters presence since it melts anyway.

Next you're going to be asking how we eat waffles... which is essentially the same way with pancakes (every crevice filled with syrup), but with a side of sausage instead.

And I do love it when people stereotype horrible American food with the idea that we eat this kind of stuff every day. The ones that do are the ones that pay for it, to be sure, but I can't even remember the last time I had waffles, and pancakes was still ages ago. That, and the idea that this is American-only cuisine is super regionalist.

Pancakes and crispy bacon is awesome. I was a doubter, but I soon changed my foreign outlook.

The difference is the bacon actually has a complimentary sweet palette. As a Britt you have no business talking about mixing stuff like that. :-) You guys dip weird pastries in your tea...

Hey,

I'm German not American and well, I could never eat the super fat food that seems to be common in America. I may my own pancakes and love to eat them with yogurt, especially cherry type.

Here's my recipe:

250g flour - 3/5 of it is freshly milled spelt flour and 2/5 normal wheat flour (the freshly milled spelt flour adds nice flavor and also makes it just a tad more healthy ;) )

375ml milk and 125ml mineral water

4 eggs, a spoon sugar and some salt too of course

Mix it well, wait half an hour, enjoy with whatever you want on it.

But for gods sake I'd vomit if I see someone eating a pancake with a bunch of butter PLUS something other fat or really sweet. That's just overkill. I must imagine if you eat like that you're used to eating really fat, unhealthy food.

man it crazy how much of this stuff I have had one pancakes here in New Zealand, my parents did tour around the UK and Europe in their youth so maybe that is where they picked it all up but when we have pancakes on the table is, maple syrup, lemon, sugar, honey, jam, cream, and bacon. WE take one pan cake off a central stack add one or two of the things and roll it up then cut in into segments. I have to say sugar and lemon are probably my favourite, I also go to a bakery/cafe that sells chilled pancakes with cream and jam rolled up in them which I very much like.

as an aside, chips (not fries) with mayo on so good, we also have an up market burger place (well compared to McDs and BK) that servers chunky chips with aoli which is so good, I used to visit a place that sold wedge and above sized chips covered in gravy, cheese, and garlic sauce which was messy as hell to eat but so very tasty

Salty and sweet go together my friend, it's not an american thing. There's apples with fondue and chocolate bacon and chocolate chip pancakes and the list goes on. I really don't see what's so unusual about that.

I don't go out of my way to put butter on my pancakes, but I always use syrup. Some restaurants put the butter on it (different then the standard stick butter) and then I'll use it. Beyond that I don't like anything else on my pancakes. Now if you put some chocolate chips or some vanilla in it then there 10X better. :) Oh and bacon goes with pancakes, so does sausages, hash-browns, and eggs.

Of course I have, they don't put greasy bacon with pancakes and syrup.
