Pancake Puppies?? I was excited to try these at Denny’s.
Neat idea, I guess, but these little balls of fried pancake batter were a bit of a disappointment. Yes, they tried to have flavor, but a cinnamon sugar coat and a bowl of syrup didn’t do it.
Pancake puppies from Denny’s had that rough texture of the hushpuppy, but even regular hushpuppies know they ought to be a bit moist. As for taste, hushpuppies have that subtle oniony flavor. Wait, why even compare the two?? I wouldn’t want a hushpuppy imposter for breakfast! I’d expect my morning meal to have a sweet hint of something, or a eggy dish.
That aside, six pancake puppies per order is a satisfactory serving. An order of Hot Chocolate (free refills) is a good companion.
I’m glad the puppies were free because I would hate to pay for plain fried dough. Next time, I’ll skip the pancake puppies and go for the egg dishes on the menu. For breakfast sweets, I’d go with donuts (either soft or cakey) and donutholes, which come in a variety of flavors, at a local bakery or market.
EDIT: This deal has ended, but I will leave this portion to in order to preserve the original intention of this post.
