    I'm searching for the "What is it" thread, if I can't find it I guess we make a new one.

    So to start off, if you use the same stuff, make the batter the same, why do waffles and pancakes taste so much different?

    I'm guessing its because the multiple edges in the structure of a waffle gives it a much higher crispiness factor than just the edges of a pancake

    Ingredients are the same but the quantities of the ingredients are different. That and the method of cooking the batter is different. One is pan cooked and the other basically steamed. And frankly, I don't think they taste that much different. Bengal is right too, the crispy factor in a waffle adds to the overall difference.

    @shane0911 Now that you have been given the keys to the TigerFan universe and had the exalted title of Moderator bestowed upon you, is Brett going to let you use the TigerFan company jet to fly to away games?

    Doubtful, the folks that pay the bills say no strippers allowed. Me on a G6 without a few pole dancers just aint right.

    The batter ain't the same. Waffle batter has more fat for the crispyness and is runny to get in all of the waffles. Pancake batter has to be thicker and more cake-like.

    Ever been to Solvang, north of Santa Barbara? It is a Danish town and at the restaurants, they serve danish pancake balls for breakfast. Fine way to die right there.

    I make em both the same damn way. Pile of powder, 1 egg, cap full of oil and milk. Whip it creamy and get to cooking.

    Many times. My grandparents lived in SB so I spent summers up there.

    Are you talking about aebleskivers? Awesome. I have a pan just for making em.
