Perfect pancakes: Gifts, recipes, and goodies for pancake lovers

Gifts for making and celebrating the perfect pancakes

Usually I’m all about waffles. But I also have massive love for perfect pancakes. For me that means massive, fluffy insides, with a perfectly smooth brown top, and some fruit of some kind — either baked into said pancake, or as a compote on top.

So here is my ode to not waffles pancakes: A round-up of pancake goodies, recipes, and gifts for pancake-lovers everywhere…

My favorite pancakes come from Maui’s Kihei Caffe. They’re HUGE and covered in blueberries, or bananas and macadamia nuts. One of my greatest accomplishments in life was finishing entire stack all by myself.

Of course, my other answer to that question is: ANY pancakes someone else makes for me.

What is YOUR idea of the perfect pancakes — either from restaurants or recipes?
