That's right, keep voting for waffles, you jerks. THAT JUST MEANS MORE PANCAKES FOR ME.

Waffles.

I like pancakes but there's so much surface area and versatility to waffles that pancakes can't hope to match.

Help yourself! The only good pancake is a pancake on top of a bunny's head.

Or, in this case, on top of Kubey's head.

I enjoy a good pancake, but waffles all the way, man. It's the extra crispness and texture that does it for me.

How is this even a contest?

Waffles, yes! Syrup, no!

Some fresh fruit or a pat of butter preferred. Why would you let your golden crispy get soggy?

1.French Toast
2.Pancake
3.Waffle

Although I eat at a diner fairly often so that may be influencing things. Diner waffles are usually overcosted and disappointing. A french toast breakfast, though, with bacon or sausage on the side? Food of the gods.

You're clearly eating the wrong pancakes. Pancakes don't need added item to have taste, just to be tastier.

I've never had really good waffles, but I don't know why I would seek them out. Pancakes are all I need. With maple syrup and butter and bacon, it's the king of breakfasts. But they have to be fairly dense. Fluffy pancakes suck.

Pancakes are just pouring a batter and letting it spread out by itself. We had to invent the waffle iron before waffles were even possible. That's countless years of research and lost lives given to engineering a more perfect pancake.

Hm. Strange. All the people I like on TT voted for pancakes. This must mean that pancakes is really the best option.

Yes. I always dislike this argument cropping up in discussions of taste because it is spurious, but here it works.

If you don't like pancakes, it is because you haven't tried the right pancakes. Come back when you do, and you can thank us pancake lovers then.

Goddammit, Dizzy.

I don't want you to be right, but... goddammit. You are.

Waffles suck because you can't distribute toppings* evenly over their surface in the same way you can with a pancake. So you end up with like three surface-cups full of butter and syrup and the rest is just dry, dry waffle, and you need a huge glass of milk just to somehow choke it down.

Pancakes are cake. For breakfast. Cake!

*as has been rightfully observed by men wiser than us, both items are mere vessels for butter and syrup

I am confused as to why this is a "final battle" as opposed to, like, "Best Battery Breakfest Thunderdome".

Otherwise, I have no opinion.

That opens the door to French Toast, and Crepes, at which point you may as well have a battle between all seven deadly breakfast arts.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say Syrup No.

Because macerated fruit, whipped cream, or ice cream is better. In very much the same way that waffles are simply better than pancakes, there are many better things to top both waffles and pancakes with than plain syrup.

Actual proper maple syrup is better than regular syrup but still not as good as, like, lightly cooked apples or strawberries.

Dizzy, that was the best post on TT ever.

As for syrup: Maple syrup is the nectar of the gods. Table syrup is Lucifer's piss.

I voted for pancakes because they're quicker so I make them more often. Plus you can only put chunks in waffles if they're pretty small and uniform, whereas pancakes can easily support some sliced strawberries or peaches in there.

Also, real maple syrup ONLY, FOREVER.

I don't think I ever crave waffles. I like them well enough, I like the crunch... but when I think "goddamn it's been a long time since a good old-fashioned American breakfast" I want pancakes.

Oh yeah and maple syrup all the way, and real maple syrup, none of that "flavored HFCS" log cabin bullshit.

I had blueberry pancakes with butter and maple syrup this morning.

Never have my convictions been so strong.

My favorite pancake thing is when they're crunchy on the outside.
