Team Waffles or Team Pancakes?
The war between waffles and pancakes has yet to be resolved. Some prefer pancakes since they’re light and fluffy while others choose waffles for their crunch and texture.
Both can be eaten anytime of the day and both can be savory and sweet. So why is it so hard to decide which one is better? Here’s a list of pancake and waffle dishes to help you choose your side.
