No breakfast is complete without a side of good old fashioned buttermilk pancakes. Nothing hits the spot like little golden discs covered in butter and maple syrup. The classic breakfast item, flapjacks are good for any occasion. 

Pancakes are better than waffles because they are more personal. They must be made by hand in a pan, not in a little mass-produced iron. Waffles simply have no soul. More love and skill goes into making a pancake. Being a pancake enjoyer is a sign of having a higher level of competence when it comes to cooking. 

It’s the food of true individuals, because you rarely make the same pancake twice. With waffles, you are confined to one shape, making them lose all sense of individuality. Pancakes are also easily stackable, making eating efficiency optimal. You can’t deny that pancakes are the epitome of breakfast foods. 

“Why would you have something that’s supposed to be buttery, nice, sweet, and soft, and then make it crunchy and trash?” said senior Cameron Steinbrugge.
