At The Original Pancake House we are all about the toppings. Whether it’s our famous pancakes or our crispy Belgian waffles, the meal is made so much more tasty with a variety of toppings (and ingredients cooked inside, for that matter).  When it comes to waffle toppings, butter and maple syrup are the king and queen of breakfast.  Those deep pockets in the waffle are just made for pooling up the good waffle toppingsstuff.  Whipped cream and strawberries are the classic choices when it comes to Belgian waffle toppings.  But what else are Americans putting on their waffles? The website National Today surveyed 1,000 Americans to discover their top 10 favorite waffle toppings and here is what they found.

  1. Maple Syrup – 62%
  2. Butter – 10%

  6. Nutella – 4%
  7. Chocolate – 3%
  8. Honey – 2%
  9. Jam/Jelly – 2%
  10. Apple Butter – 2%
