Listening to the grumbling of my stomach on a pleasant Wednesday evening, I decided that I’d have some breakfast. It’s quite unorthodox thinking, but when you have very little cooking experience and a sister who also wants pancakes, breakfast is the perfect option for dinner!
When the pancake is covered in bubbles, you know that it’s ready to flip. So what makes pancakes the best choice for dinner? Well, all you have to do is add water. Prep time for Krusteaz brand pancakes is 5-10 minutes, which is perfect for a pair of starving kids. The next great thing about pancakes is their “customizability” which, as of now, is a new word. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to follow all of the directions on the box or the bag. I decided to add bananas and walnuts to my pancakes and you know what? They turned out delicious.
Man, I really wish I could smell them right now… The crispy edges of a pancake are a wonder for the senses. You can see the distinct edge of golden brown along the corners of a well cooked pancake. When you bite off a piece of the corner, you can feel the crunch and hear the sound it makes when your teeth penetrate the sacred layer of crispiness. You can definitely taste the goodness, that’s for sure.
YES I DID! But do you know what’s even better than the crispy golden crust? Nutella. Do you know what’s better than Nutella? … Nothing. Again we come back to the word, “customizability.” Pancakes do not always like to be garnished in the same way. If you only put syrup on your pancakes, you are not yet a member of the pancake-eating community. Us pancake-eaters are part of a very prestigious group and we take to heart how pancakes are eaten as well as cholesterol from butter. The bottom line is, please try to add some spice (or should I say sugar) into your pancake eating life-style and discover new possibilities!
What’s better than Nutella? … Noth- … wait…hold on, is that PEANUT BUTTER?!? Yup, Nutella and peanut butter is better than just Nutella. Again, “customizablility.” Why have a pancake when you could have a pancake with Nutella and peanut butter? If you haven’t done this before, you worry too much about calories. Es necesario que you’re open to trying new things. Because this is AMAZING. I know because I had it for dinner last Wednesday night. But that’s not all…
You can top ice cream with a cherry, but it’s better to top a pancake with ice cream. Well, hopefully anyone reading this will decide to try some banana-walnut pancakes smothered in Nutella, peanut butter, and ice cream by the end of their lives. Trust me, it’s worth it.
