More Pancake Fun!

I cannot cook. Once, I literally burnt a salad. Don't ask how, because I don't know.

But, if there's one thing I can do, it is to cook a perfect pancake. Yes, I do use a mix, but that is irrelevant.

Today I made banana pancakes!

The trick is to use real maple syrup. The last time I went to Safeway for maple syrup, I noticed that most of the regular bottles of "maple syrup" in their plastic, cabin shaped (for whatever reason) jugs are actually just high fructose corn syrup. The "Real, 100% Organic" maple syrups were in glass flasks. Curious, I bought one of the real syrups, though they were more than twice the price per ounce. The difference was well worth the cost. Real maple syrup is light and sweet, and you can taste the amber goodness all the way through. I don't think I can ever go back to fake maple syrup. Time to move to Canada!
