        no worries :) for some reason i seem to have a skill for digging up CH & Google search results that no one else can find!

    2. Real maple syrup-grade A dark amber.....yum

      1. I actually dislike fruit on my pancakes. To me, it's all about butter and maple syrup. I'll take the fruit fresh (no added sugar) and on the side, please!

          funny i hate butter on anything but maple syrup apart from lemon and sugar is the only other topping i've ever had and it was accompanied by fresh fruit salad and yoghurt on the side

        2. peanut butter and maple syrup, of course!

              You guys rock. To date, my dad and I have been the only people I know who do the PB and syrup combo...but I try to convert everyone I meet!

              1. re: Suzy Q

                I can't even imagine pancakes without PB and syrup:-)

                Same here -- love the PB and syrup combo! Otherwise I like blueberry syrup and lots of butter!

              3. I don't put anything on "top" of my pancakes.

                I prefer to dress the pancakes with stuff "between" each pancake.

                I like to make a peanut butter jelly and banana pancake sandwich.

                Take one pancake, spread some peanut butter and fruit jam of your choice (I prefer blueberry), top with sliced bananas, and then place a pancake on top of it all. Then eat.
