My New Pancake Technique is Unstoppable
That’s right: My new pancake technique IS unstoppable. Of course it may stop your heart. Please only attempt the following if you have a decent cholesterol level and have no fear of having a heart attack. Even if you do run the risk of being jolted around by a few shots from a defibrillator you should maybe try this out.
I have a thing for butter. My friends say it is because of my English heritage. Where ever it comes from I am sure it will be my downfall, and yet it will be so worth it.
So basically whenever I eat anything I ask myself: “Would butter make this better” Sometimes the answer is no, but for the most part the answer is yes. Once I have established the fact that butter can improve the food I apply a “healthy” dose of butter.
When Saturday morning comes around I get very exited for having butter for breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, french toast, all these things are just an excuse to consume butter. Most Saturdays consist of pancakes a ton of butter, and of course…butter flavoured syrup.
Have I grossed you out too much so far or are you still with me?
If you have stuck it out this far then I would like to share with you my new pancake technique. Sometimes when I ask the “would butter make this better” question it is sometimes followed by “how can I increase the effectiveness of the butter on <insert food here>.” Last Saturday I again asked this question about pancakes and was surprised by vision I was blessed with.
Pancake’s butter effectiveness level could be increased by putting butter inside the pancake.
Let me provide an example of how butter and pancakes normally react: You take a decent slab of butter and place it on the pancake. It proceeds to slide off. You take your knife and spread it around a bit. Then you pour on the syrup and it washes all of the butter to the plate. Now you have wasted a ton of ‘yellow gold.’
Here is how you fix this situation and put the butter on the inside and thus create a much tastier pancake.
- Grab your favourite steak knife ( I know you have a favourite!)
- Make light parallel incisions approximately 1cm apart along the surface of the pancake
- Apply the butter
- Give the butter a few moments to seep into the pancake
- Pour on the syrup
And that my friends is my new ‘Pancake Technique.’ If you love pancakes and butter I think this will really improve your breakfast experiences. Let me know if you have tried this, will try it, or think that this is really, really disgusting.
