If they’re good enough for the world, they’re good enough for me. If I could, I would put Tasty Crust’s pancakes in a category of their own: Delicious-Melt-In-Your-Mouth-Goodness. I wonder if the USDA would approve that…? Probably not. But that shouldn’t stop anyone from sampling these fluffy golden brown slices of heaven. Sure, those burnt on the outside/raw on the inside pancakes your kids made you Sunday morning may be thoughtful, but Tasty Crust’s pancakes will fill your tummy with flapjack bliss.

Not when it comes to Tasty Crust pancakes. I’ve never figured out what it is that makes them so…tasty. I’m not usually one for hot cakes, too heavy. But these are different—light, fluffy even. They sit, unadorned on your plate, no strawberries, no whipped cream. These cakes seem confident in their ability to wow you by their very simplicity. And they do.
