Team Pancake vs Team Waffle // a tag




It's an age old war: waffles or pancakes? (Or panffles ??) Blogger's own Olivia Knight tweeted a simple "I want waffles," and that phrase was enough to reignite fire in the hearts of men. Okay, that's a bit dramatic, I admit. Olivia did start something amazing, though, and as the pancakes vs. waffles fight continued, Rachel started a tag, and it eventually was passed around to me through Aaliyah . (Also, a super rad group chat was started because of this.) And I'm obviously team waffle, y'all. I mean, have you seen my Pinterest?? I have a whole board dedicated to it. So, without further ado, here we go!

1. Thank the person who tagged you.
2. Answer the questions.
3. Tag five people.
4. Share you favorite pancake or waffle recipe [optional].

(Again, thanks to Aaliyah at Growing in His Image for tagging me!!)


DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL WAFFLE IN THREE WORDS.


Warm, light, and DELICIOUS.

IF YOU COULD EAT WAFFLES WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD, LIVING OR DEAD, FICTIONAL OR REAL , WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO EAT WITH?

(THIS IS SO HARD.) I would definitely have to say Christy Miller and all of her God-lover gang. (Also shout-out to Rachel for including fictional people !!!)


TOP THREE CONDIMENTS ON YOUR WAFFLES?

Strawberries, because my grandpa always puts strawberries on the waffles he makes for us; Chocolate chips, because they're a classic, and waffles are not waffles without chocolate chips; and real maple syrup, because it's the bomb and whenever I eat it I secretly wish I was Canadian.

DESCRIBE WHY WAFFLES ARE BETTER THAN PANCAKES.

Eh-em. *Pulls out forty-page speech*: Waffles are easier to make (and I stink at cooking, so that's a plus); waffles hold toppings easier than pancakes; you can make arguably anything in a waffle maker (ex: Pizza Waffles); waffles have built-in syrup-holders; waffles are a unicorn's favorite food, which makes me a unicorn.

IF YOU COULD MAKE YOUR WAFFLES INTO ANY SHAPE OR SIZE, HOW WOULD YOU MAKE THEM?

I WOULD MAKE A HAT OUT OF WAFFLES SO I COULD WEAR IT AND SHOW MY WAFFLE PRIDE. 

- You. Because you're totally rad and awesome and you know you want to join in all the fun.


I confess, I have never tried this (partly because I haven't had time, and partly because I'm afraid to cook), but they look amazing. PIZZA WAFFLES. (This recipe is from Spend With Pennies.)

INGREDIENTS:
  1. 1 package crescent rolls (8 pieces)
  2. 1⅓ cup mozzarella cheese
  3. pepperoni (or your favorite pizza toppings)
  4. pizza sauce for dipping

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Preheat waffle iron and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls. You will have 8 triangles. Pinch seams to connect 2 triangles so you form 4 rectangles.
  3. Place ⅓ cup mozzarella cheese and pepperoni in each rectangle. Fold over and pinch to seal all sides. Repeat with remaining sections.
  4. Place each piece of dough on the preheated waffle iron. Close and cook 5 minutes or until browned.
  5. Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping.


Well, that's a wrap! I can't wait to read all of y'all's #teamwaffle or #teampancake posts! Please comment below if you decide to join the tag so I can read your post! Happy waffle (or pancake) making!
