National Pancake Day

Today is National Pancake Day. A weekday is not a great day for enjoying pancakes. Most of us working stiffs don't have the time to sit down to a pancake breakfast. Why didn't they pick a Saturday or Sunday?

I love 'em plain, with blueberries, buttermilk, bananas or pecans. But I must confess that I'm not a fan of chocolate chip pancakes, which are usually on the menu of IHOPs and other pancake houses.

To truly enjoy a stack of pancakes, you need to have the right kind of syrup. Aunt Jemima? No friggin' way. Maple syrup is my one and only choice. Sure, it costs more than cane sugar syrup, but the depth of flavor is so much better than the mass-marketed non-maple varieties. Want to make pancakes from scratch? It's not that hard.
