It is a small treat to start off the day! Covered in syrup and chocolate chips to cure that sweet tooth craving. So It is safe to assume that pancakes are probably not the first thing that you think of for dining options for a date, right?
Dates are supposed to feel romantic and sensual. It is the getting-to-know-you process, the moment to be the best version of yourself to the attractive person sitting in front of you.
The need to impress and be the very best version of yourself. Which usually requires meals being in darkly lit and intimate settings, maybe a movie and dinner, which is so played out, we know the routine, done it millions of times, and yet there is always this subtle tension. How do chocolate chip pancakes become the perfect dessert to have on a date? Let me explain.
