As a child this simple pancake with hot chocolate (with marshmallows) was my idea of heaven. I thought it a very sophisticated heaven. The buttermilk pancakes were so large and fluffy compared to my mum's. And I am sure this must be where I first had maple syrup. I can't remember it anywhere else in my childhood.
But I digress. I like savoury too. I had an epiphany one day when I discovered I could eat half the cheese pancake with salad and eat the other half with maple syrup. Win win. Only I discovered that they only use maple flavoured syrup unless you pay extra. Which is cheeky when the prices are already ridiculously high ($19.40 for my pancake and salad!)
