I tend to not have syrup in my house for a couple of reasons:
1) We rarely have pancakes and I don't own a waffle iron
2) I only like real maple syrup, but (again) I rarely use it so it tends to go bad, and
3) I can never remember to buy it
What I tend to use to dress my pancakes is a simple fruit compote. A little bit of jelly, some frozen berries, a splash of water and heat and you've got something pretty yummy!
Pour on to your pancakes or waffles, or serve on the side for dipping.

Let's say that this shot is proof positive that it's a hit!
