          It's gonna take 2 votes as I suspect Ipse's tie breaking vote will go to pancakes et al.

          The pasta guys could switch... :)

          Little over 12 hours left to vote.

          Unless the Fungus contingent wants to spend December fasting or eating Pancakes, Waffles and French Toast, time to do some campaigning.

          Remember, vote often and vote once.

            By my count Pancakes are winning by just 2 votes.

                      All caps or it didn't happen... ;). Like my vote for PANCAKES & WAFFLES & FRENCH TOAST which will hopefully push it to the top! Hmmmmm. ...those little circle waffle cone thingies at peddlers ice cream... Hmmmmm.

                                            Is takotaki refered to as an octopus pancake or octopus ball?

                                            Pancake may imply the coin shape not what it's made of. Just sayin'. ;-)

                                              I failed in my effort to defend wiener's balls. ;>) Every definition I looked at stated either thin or flat.

                                                  Takoyaki is the Japanese savory version.

                                                Y'know, there are pancakes with 'shrooms ... they call them "pannkakor med svampfyllning!"

                                                  If pancakes won, I was going to do potato pancakes.

                                                  Really though, the fun is in funghi. Just sayin'.

                                                  A mound of dough drenched in syrup is not appealing to me. 1 bite a year off of someone else's plate is good enough for me.

                                                        The only food that makes waffles seem close to edible (to me), is/are (tough conjugation) pancakes. But then, there are the type you wrap around Beijing Duck and Moo Shu Pork, I suppose.

                                                              Æbleskiver (Danish meaning apple slices (singular: æbleskive)) are traditional Danish pancakes in a distinctive shape of a sphere. Æbleskiver are cooked on the stove top by baking in a special cast iron pan with several hemispherical indentations. Batter is poured into the oiled indentations and as the æbleskiver begin to cook, they are turned with a knitting needle, skewer or fork to give the cakes their characteristic spherical shape. Æbleskiver are not sweet themselves but are traditionally served dipped in raspberry, strawberry, lingonberry or blackberry jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
