It’s a polarizing opinion, but not an uncommon one. “I LOVE the experience of making pancakes from scratch, hearing them sizzle as I pour them onto a hot griddle, and watching everyone in my family gather around the stove and tell me how much they love me,” she wrote on her blog.

5 Sticky-Sweet Ways to Eat Your PancakesSkills
Few things can beat easing into a winter day with a warm stack of fluffy pancakes. While maple syrup is the usual go-to pairing, it’s far from the only way to give your pancakes the sticky-sweet topping they deserve.
