How are we acting more sophisticated ? We’re literally talking about babies, Sherlock with a snot nose, and John and Mary being parents?

Why do you even have to comment on a post unrelated to you? we see a lot of posts going on about how Johnlock shippers are misogynistic and evil we don’t comment on it, and you know what, thats sophistication, why don’t you mind your own business? 

How on earth is that post unrelated to him? He’s literally mentioned in it. That post’s talking about the creator of lockson. He is the creator of lockson.

Americans and their weird obsession with peanut butter, though. I’ve tasted it once and it was yucky

American pancakes are weird and icky. They wouldn’t even taste good with sugar and lemon.

Lemon???????? omg lol

It’s tradition on shrove tuesday. Delicious, delicious tradtion. Look: image

See? Delicious.

Never seen that combination before. But those are proper pankakes anyway :-) I just eat mine with sugar. Or strawberry jam

image

Ooh, I’ve never tried them with strawberry jam! I’ve tried them with chocolate sauce. Very sweet, but nice. :)

When I was in Egypt about 5 years ago or something they served pankakes with chocolate sauce for breakfast at the hotel, actually. It was weird, especially for breakfast, but I ate and it was good. We eat pankakes for like lunch or dinner here, though, so chocolate sauce would be weird to eat at dinner haha.

All I’m seeing are pictures of crepes. Crepes are not pancakes. Pancakes are not crepes. I’ve been looking at this conversation from a distance and felt the need to step in and make the distinction.

If you won’t believe us, believe wikipedia and the BBC:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pancake#United_Kingdom

http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/basicpancakeswithsuga_66226

It says that Swedish pankakes are SIMILAR to crepes, but it doesn’t say that they are those ;-)

The only reason I said anything was because one of you said that American pancakes were “icky” because they didn’t look like what you all are familiar with. That’s ignorance. Yeah you can’t eat it the same because it’s really not the same thing. The wiki link also had a blurb about North American pancakes which is made with the same ingredients as yours (eggs, flour and milk) plus baking powder, making it more like a cake. So it’s not the same thing.

I never said anything of the sort. I said I found american pancakes icky. Not because of what they look like, but because I’ve tasted them and I don’t like them. I am very familiar with them. You can buy them in any British supermarket and most British restaurants that serve breakfast. I just prefer British pancakes, because you can eat them with nice things like sugar and lemon, or just about anything really, whereas you can only eat american pancakes with butter or syrup, because they’re fattier and have a stronger flavour. Toppings a meant to set off the pancake, whereas British pancakes are meant to set off the topping.

American pancakes can also be eaten with fruit, chocolate, etc. mixed into the batter. They can be eaten with banana and rum toppings (which is what my family always does on Fat Tuesday), with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, or strawberries on top. They can be made with milk, cream, or buttermilk, and different types of flour. They’re simply a different kind of food, more filling than British style pancakes and closer in texture and flavor to the “cake” rather than to crepes.  

That’s true. Point still stands that american pancakes will still taste like american pancakes, no matter what topping they have, whereas british pancakes don’t have much flavour in themselves and can be whatever you want them to be. They also have very different textures. So yeah, they are very different foods, and it all depends on what you want out of a food. My original point was simply that I don’t like american pancakes, an off-hand comment which was in reply and agreement to a remark sannao75 made in the tags of the original post. I didn’t mean for it to turn into the big debate!

National foods are touchy subjects. Oh, I just wanted to mention that what the British think are American pancakes and what Americans think are American pancakes are two very different things. The little packages of American pancakes you can get in British supermarkets bear only a slight resemblance to what Americans make at home, or are served in American diners. Much as what Americans think constitute “English-style chips” are not even close to the chips you buy at most chip stands in Britain. 

As an American let me just say American pancakes are often icky??? Like, the freezer kind, or at Denny’s or from a mix? Or if they’re over mixed, or if you use the wrong shortening or too much flour or much whole wheat flower or if you use cheap vanilla or not enough/the wrong leavening? That is totally a valid opinion because YES THEY CAN BE SUPER GROSS LITTLE FRISBEES.

I like WELL MADE pancakes, but it’s taken me years to perfect a recipe, figure out an exact method of mixing the ingredients, the exact right method of cooking them, when to flip and all that. I don’t think anyone in the UK would be making “american-style” pancakes that I would call edible. Most Americans aren’t making american style pancakes i call edible.

From what a few people have said, I gather the american pancakes I’ve had were just badly made american pancakes. Does anyone know a good recipe for them? I like to bake cakes and biscuits and cakey things, I’d like to learn how to make them properly!

I find that if one wants to have a good starting point with American cuisine, Alton Brown is pretty much the authority on the basics:

http://bakedbyme.blogspot.com/2008/03/thanks-to-alton-brown-these-pancakes.html

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/instant-pancake-mix-recipe.html


That said, “American” pancake batters can vary extremely widely by region, in deference to what kinds of crops grew where. This is an unspoken understanding in the states, and if you go somewhere that specializes in pancakes or breakfast food, there is going to be a selection of pancakes starting with what kind of batter is used (buttermilk, corn, white flour, wheat flour, sourdough, johnny cake, etc.). Some are more savory, and some are more sweet. Pancakes as made in the US are meant to be eaten right off the griddle, while still hot. They’ll keep, but are rarely satisfying even reheated because the cake tends to go stale and rigid pretty quickly after it cools. Pancakes are typically served with fruit either on the side or mixed in, and almost always with maple syrup, which cuts the thickness of the cake.

Edit: I should probably add that there is no one “American pancake.” It’s more a style than a concrete dish. Just about everyone who cooks has their own tweaked recipe, to get the texture or flavor they like best.That’s partly because pancakes/flapjacks in the US are a bit of holdover from pioneering days; read the Little House books for great descriptions of johnny cakes and other pan cakes that were popular and filling meals made from small amounts of ingredients. Just put “pancake” into a Pinterest search and you can spend hours looking through all the collected variants and proposed “basic” pancakes. (http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=pancakes) Then, if you really want a treat, search flapjacks, griddle cakes, or hotcakes. You’ll find that those results are ever-so slightly different, I wager.

That said, Americans are quite passionate about pancakes, although in a less overt manner than say, burgers or pizza. Having pancakes for breakfast is a bit like the English fry up in that it is the quintessential American breakfast food. 

Thank you very much!

I should basically just never mention food on tumblr. This is like the bacon incident all over again.

I didn’t mean to start The Great Pancake War of 2014

I never meant to start the Great Bacon War of 2013 either

I’m just here to watch cartoons, read comics, worship Emma Peel, and cry over dead and elderly comedians

how does it always end up like this

Ooh, tell me about the bacon war.

Basically, I happened to say I don’t like bacon. Some people agreed with me, others rather passionately disagreed with me, and with the people who agreed. I got several upset asks about it. A few people unfollowed me because of it. The people of tumblr are very passionate about their bacon, it seems.

partywithponies said: "I DIDN'T MEAN FOR THIS TO HAPPEN TO YOUR POST AND I'M VERY VERY SORRY"

sannao75:

No, don’t be. It’s just a discussion.

This happens every time I mention food on tumblr.

First I said I didn’t like bacon. Chaos ensued.

Then I said Smarties were better than M&Ms. The following discussion/debate/war got very passionate and went on for hours.

This could carry on for days.
