    The ancient Greeks clearly enjoyed their pancakes

    But I'm sure they're not the only one. Let's discuss who may or may not have enjoyed the sumptious delights and yumminess of pancakes and waffles. But be prepared to backup your claims with evidence

    Yes, but it took Roman engineering know-how to invent syrup!

    I think this demonstrates quite clearly that the Egyptians had knowledge of both pancakes AND waffles.

    I think the ones on the left are arguing over who stole the syrup.

    The Cappadocians were notorious waffle-lovers.

    Some say it contributed to their downfall.
