It was a normal Wednesday. I had a normal breakfast. Then, Yahoo web trend expert Lauren Whitehouse emails me saying users are searching for waffles and pancakes. At this time, it’s barely 11 a.m. and all I can think about is raiding the nearest Waffle House (I know). Over the past 30 days, there’s no denying which food takes home the win on the Yahoo front; users are searching for pancake recipes six times more than waffles. But I’m curious – what do Design Happens readers prefer when it comes to waffles and pancakes? It sounds like a simple dilemma, but I’ll let these mouthwatering recipes help with your decision, starting with waffles.

I’m a flapjack gal all the way. Here’s why: I don’t own a waffle iron (blasphemy!), so it’s been so easy for me to just get in the routine of ladling out batter onto my electric skillet and making stacks of pancakes on the weekends. It’s quick, easy and I can make six fluffy flapjacks at a time. So, what’s your pick? Take the poll below, and share your favorite recipes in the comments.
