Best pancake flavors at the Griddle (Not with nuts, though!)

Diana | Jun 18, 2008 06:23 AM

So my birthday month pancake feed is approaching, and crazy indecisive little Diana is frittering her spare time away, trying to figure out where to go. The Griddle is a front runner this year. My husband has promised me that if I want, I can get three cakes, three different flavors. I did this the last two years at John o' Groats. I love my husband, he is so good at indulging my wish to be able to taste more.

Of course, the poor man is unaware that the cakes at the Griddle are a whole different animal compared to O'Groats, in terms of size, heft and ooey gooeyness. But, a promise is a promise, and there is a 9 mile hike planned afterwards to burn off the energy-so my carb and sugar rush won't annoy him too much the rest of the day. I don't know if I will finish it all, but since I am known for besting college football boys in an all you can eat sushi bar, I think I may be OK. Just because I am tiny, doesn't mean I can't eat and enjoy a large amount of pancakes. Hey, it's once a year!

Anyhoo, keeping in mind that nuts and peanuts will kill me darn quick, what are the best Griddle options to get?

(p.s. OK, I am not thinking about pancakes all of my free time. but it sometimes seems like it! :) )
