    I absolutely hate pancakes. Everything about them is just wrong but every single year somebody bullies me into trying the horrible soggy mess that is pancakes with lemon and sugar. Ew. Even the thought of a unicorn shaped one isn't winning me over!

    But, I'm giving them one last try; a final attempt to be part of the pancake day festivities. I'm 90% certain they'll always be a hard nay for me but who knows? Maybe I've just not met the right one yet.

    Are some toppings less awful than others? Am I doing something wrong? Why even put sugar and lemon on them anyway? Somebody reassure me that I'm not alone in my dislike of the soggy mush!

    Pancakes the way British people make them = :yucky:

    Horrible wobbly mess of batter that are basically equivalent to eating rubber.

    Pancakes the way Canadians make them = :gah:

    Proper thick cakey pancakes with butter and authentic maple syrup (and maybe some bacon too) are great.

    I haven't had any for years but they are good warm. I'd rather have some homemade cheese scones though.

    Then for our savoury my sister makes some godly pancakes with crispy bacon and maple syrup :drool::eating::love:

    The cakey ones are the worst :yucky: they are the same nausea-inducingness as waffles

    I'm glad I'm not alone! More than happy to make them but eating them is just weird.

    Yup! Oatcakes are amazing and not in the same league as pancakes which are vile little mush monsters. And they're savoury instead of weird and sweet.

    Everybody asks how I can love one and not the other - like Deyesy said at the weekend - oatcakes are just savoury pancakes. He's wrong but I understand it

    You like your pancakes like I like my oatcakes! Super thin is the only way to go. Don't put lemon on my oatcakes though!

    YES! A stack of proper tasty pancakes with syrup and blueberries and tastiness! English ones are just weird and pointless.

    I live for blueberry oatmeal buttermilk pancakes. They're my happy place. Maybe I can just make those today instead!

    I would kill for a cheese scone. Reminds me of DofE because we always find a shop selling scones on our last day.

    I've tried pancakes straight from the pan. Still a hard nope

    But they're so icky! Why are they just mush and they have no backbone or texture. I can't think of a single way to redeem them but I love making things too much to avoid making them :cry2:

    Oh. Oh dear. That's not good. Waffles and ice cream is one of my favourite things in the world. Especially at breakfast. I can see why somebody wouldn't want them though.

    More for me I guess!

    Blueberries are such a nuisance though. There's a 5-minute window where they're perfect. Outside of that, the texture is just mushy or the flavour is weird. such a pain!

    I also enjoy food. I adore baking things but I never actually eat anything I bake. There's a perfectly good Harry Potter inspired treacle tart waiting for some love at home right now!

    Try the other types too! How do you eat your pancakes? I'm not hearing much outside of the sugary lemon situation!

    Okay I actually agree wtih you on this one xD I hate when things like fruit go soggy and mushy and I understand the blueberry issue

    I'll buy a packet and within a day or two it all goes off to being soft and hence why I have to eat just ALOT in one go haha

    But, omg I can't wait to do more cooking and baking later this year!

    And this is perfect! You bake food (which I adore so much :love: ) and then send it over to me to devour and enjoy and give you lovely compliments on your baking:flutter::yep:

    Don't tease me with Harry potter treats when I'm stuck in a team meeting

    Personally I enjoy then with some Lyle's golden syrup drizzled on top. Lemon and Sugar just isn't appetizing at all... Sticky sour sweet mess :/ I would like to try other types but have no idea where to do so haha .

    Are you talking about the thicker, smaller pancakes, or the thinner, larger ones (forgive me for not knowing their actual names oof)?

    Either way, I find both of them delicious :daydreaming: Absolutely nothing beats a pancake covered in Nutella and fresh strawberries.

    Meh. They're one of those things I don't really care for.

    I did have some nice ones in Dublin though. They had bacon and maple syrup.
