I am a pancake magician.

Sunday, July 06, 2008 | | 0 comments »

It has taken me a few tries, but I am nearly a professional pancake maker.

At first, my pancakes were 2 inches thick, burned on both sides, and not cooked at all in the middle. Now, my pancakes are perfectly round and thin, beautifully browned, and thoroughly cooked. So, I am a pancake magician.

Unprofessionally, I have to admit, I use a mix, but I do add eggs for extra protein. One day, perhaps, my cooking skills will evolve to where I can actually make pancakes from scratch... but let's take it one day at a time. Anyway, I use Aunt Jemima mix. It's easy, and I hate to cook. I used to be (a month ago) scared of cooking anything on a pan. Oh, how much I've grown. Now I have no fear.

What is even better and possibly more important than pancakes?? The syrup. No question. You could probably use any brand of pancake mix, I just happen to use Aunt Jemima because it kosher, has easy directions, and the price is right - but they probably all taste the same. You cannot, however, use any brand of syrup. Syrup is not only key to awesome-tasting pancakes, but it is crucial to the quality of the remainder of your day after you use the syrup. After each time I use syrup, I think about how awesome it was, and I cannot stop thinking about it for the rest of the day. I've noticed that if I don't use quality syrup, I don't think of the syrup after it's use, which definitely takes away from my day because any day that you constantly think about syrup is a good day. Syrup is definitely a day-elevator. (That sounded better in my head). Here it is, Aunt Jemima Butter Lite Syrup:

The morals that should be taken from this post? 1. Pancake-making is easy, and you can be an expert in no time. 2. Syrup is more important than you, or I, could ever understand. EVER.
