Everyone here saying that pancakes are "soggy" have never had proper fresh pancakes. You have to eat them fresh from the pan with real maple syrup and butter. While I am not a fan of added fruit or chocolate I respect the tastes of people that do. One thing I have tried recently was adding pecans right into the batter rather than putting them on top, and I will say that was a success, though I doubt I will do that every time.

Why must I choose? They are both ok. Been wanting crepes lately though. French toast is nice too.

Waffles, but that's mostly because I've got a good iron that makes perfect waffles nearly every time, and even using some plain old Aunt Jemima mix. Good pancakes, I mean really good pancakes, are tricky. I don't like those thick, cakey pancakes you get from a mix. They need to be thin and kind of crisp around the edges. And they need to cook quick and hot so that those air bubbles keep the texture light and give the syrup a place to infiltrate. That's a lot of effort for an early morning meal, and I'd probably rather have a waffle anyways.

And since everyone seems to be up on french toast, the only time you use that boring-ass sandwich bread is if you're out of everything else. You need thick bread, dipped in egg mix, dredged in cornflake crumbs (or crushed Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch if you just don't give a fuck anymore), and baked.

Now I want breakfast.

For me:

The best possible pancakes > the best possible waffles

but...

average to below-average waffles > average to below-average pancakes

On taste:
1. Waffles
2. French toast
3. Pancakes

Adding in ease of making each:

1. French toast
2. Waffles
3. Pancakes

I like all of them, tho.

I used to think waffles were best, but truthfully, unless you add a lot of butter to the batter for flavor, most places don't make them well and they come out fairly flavorless/dry.

Haven't thought about it. Right now, I'd probably say Waffle.

Either way, contrary to what's being said here, French Toast is dead last.

A crispy waffle is an excellent way to start the morning. They'd be perfect if only waffle irons weren't such a pain to clean. Too many nooks and crannies.

*third bite* Why am I doing this to myself?! [throws the remains in the dang trash.]

I slightly prefer pancakes over waffles, real fresh blueberry pancakes are sublime. Little butter and a tiny bit of syrup is all they need, too much syrup is the death-knell of pancakes.
