What do you like on your pancakes (other than maple syrup)

I about fell over when I saw how expensive maple syrup has become at Save Mart. Trader Joe's has less pricey bottles but I really don't use that much of it. So far I have used fruit sauces, applesauce, cling peaches, jam and smuckers syrup. Any other ideas?

      Thanks. I actually did a search of pancakes, I must have overlooked it somehow.

      1. Hot fruit sauce. You can use a bag of frozen strawberries or blueberries or the fresh fruit if you have it or tart pie cherries if you happen to have a tree. Add about a cup of water and half a cup of sugar, bring to boil, thicken slightly with a heaping tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in cold water. This is even better than maple syrup.

          This right here is one of those simple things that makes people look like great cooks.

          Myself, I like coconut syrup and macadamia nuts...

        2. Im a big fan of Elviscakes. PB, banana and marshmallow fluff

          fwiw, I tend to only eat this after 1am, if you know what I mean!?:-)

          1. One thing that wasn't included in the link provided by DiningDiva (or I might have missed it) is Condensed Milk! I love condensed milk with pancakes, waffles, toasts, etc. Sometimes it is a layer of peanut butter and a layer of condensed milk!
