Pecan pancakes are a staple of the Cracker Barrel breakfast menu, which features classic, diner-style American fare. Each serving of this dish comes with three pecan-filled buttermilk pancakes, which are topped with butter and served alongside the restaurant's brand of syrup. You're responsible for pouring your own syrup, so nutritional values will vary with a lighter or heavier hand.
