I like blueberry pancakes. I've also made chocolate peanut butter pancakes before.

Blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup made from berries you picked and cream that you whipped yourself.

Doesn't get better than that.

I saw a strawberry rhubarb tart on one of my favorite anime and it looked SO good. I want so badly to taste it.

Yumeiro Patissiere. If you like shoujo anime and if you liked Shugo Chara, you'll like it.

Growing up, we almost never had the thick pancakes unless we went to IHOP or something. My grandmother made crepes, but I didn't know that's what they were because she called them "flannel cakes"-- a very obscure usage. We'd slather them with butter (and sometimes jam), roll them up, pour syrup all over them, and then I'd basically just shove my face onto the plate and start chewing.

I prefer the thin, light pancakes or crepes to regular pancakes any day. Sometimes I enjoy a savory crepe, but most of the time I like them sweet because it reminds me of childhood.

Why is it when I go to pack that I can't find ANY of my underwear? Not a single pair. None.

Don't worry, you're not the only one. I'm making myself hungry for pancakes and pie too.

Pancakes (also known as flapjacks or griddle cakes):



Crepes (also known as, er, crepes?):



At least, that's how it is here in the US. Don't know about Canada or the UK.

You know what I love on pancakes? Coconut syrup.

Interesting. I've heard of "funnel cakes" (but I'm not sure what they are).

What is pancake day? We should celebrate it all the time.

I put coconut flakes in my pancakes. Occasionally I add some mini chocolate chips and make almond joy pancakes. With out the almonds.

What you have described as a crepe I have always seen described as a pancake and made on pancake day (using a receipe described as one for pancakes, instead of just instant pancake batter). Except when I've visited France.

The one above it, I've always known as a Scotch pancake.

The only funnel cakes I've had are a sweet batter that's basically drizzled in a circle directly into hot oil, then served on a plate with powdered sugar. You find them at carnivals and fairs a lot, although in my area it was years before I saw one because of the prevalence of Italian communities and zeppoles-- similar to funnel cakes, but they're balls of dough instead of drizzles.
