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.

  1. Grab your favourite steak knife ( I know you have a favourite!)
  2. Make light parallel incisions approximately 1cm apart along the surface of the pancake
  3. Apply the butter
  4. Give the butter a few moments to seep into the pancake
  5. 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.

Ok Chris, this is just too funny.

Of course the butter craving runs in the Whiteley family. Debra puts blobs of butter on anything.

She is presently eating day-old Chinese food as I write this. Just before she re-heated it in the microwave, she stuck a big fat blob of butter on the top of it. Gross!

Sometimes I can't tell if she is having toast with butter, or butter with toast. There must be something in the Whiteley past that causes this craving for butter. Maybe it's a 'butter' curse.

Mind you, I feel the same way about 'Miracle Whip'. If it's a green vegetable (pick any one), I put a healthy blob of the white stuff on it. Debra, who by the way loves 'Hellman's Mayo', thinks this is gross. Then proceeds to put a blob of butter on hers.

Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor – He put the two of us together (35 years & counting) 🙂

Cheers!

By the way, I love pancakes! I add shredded coconut to the dry mix before adding the water. Adds a bit of crunchiness & sweetness to the pancakes. Don't really need any syrup, just a bit of butter (Ok, in your case, lots of butter). Sometimes I roll the pancake up like a crepe & eat it like that. Mmmm!

Debra refuses to eat any pancakes with coconut in them. She likes coconut – just not in her pancakes. 🙂

Cheers,
Reg
