"Fluffy pancakes I put together for a recipe contest years ago. It was originally served with a summer fruits syrup (in my recipe collection here), but although that syrup is delicious, they shouldn't have to be attached at the hip to enjoy. Have your pancakes with that, with maple syrup, with blueberry syrup or whatever you like It's your breakfast."
