Last night was my monthly blogging break. Actually I have a ton of tests and projects due form today on up to Tuesday, so with the exception of America’s Next Top Model there weren’t too many shenanigans from my end of the table. To give you an idea-I have a test today, quiz tomorrow, 2 tests on Monday and 1 on Wednesday. Then (for my NY state lovelys), I as a college kid have to take 5 regents (for homework) back to back to help me prepare to be a NY state teacher. Holla to you guys because I have 2 done and I’m bored.
This morning I woke up and had my daily JUG of coffee, and then realized I was out of coffee filters to make another batch. (My morning jug is on autotimer so it makes it as I’m waking up).
Since it would be hard for me to explain my exact though process, I clearly found it acceptable to take 1000 webcam photos (like a childrens picture book). Keep in mind this is all at 7:30 am…why I have this much energy is always beyond me.
Anywho-today’s post is actually dedicated to Holly at Greek Yogurt and Apple Slices. But not because she is the blog that I have been subscribed to longest (shout out!) but because she convinced me that carrot cake pancakes would be awesome in my belly.
I was feeling lazy and waffle like though-so introduce the Carrot Cake Waffle
Start with the basics:
1/ 2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 scoop protein powder for me
Then add the mix ins:
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tablespoon brown sugar
¼ cup shredded carrot
¼ cup rasins
Mix and add water/milk to get the right consistency. Waffles need more than pancakes. Then serve with Greek yogurt and sprinkles on top and we can be twinnies.
Don’t expect many new pancake recipes soon-because I’ll be making this all the time until I wear it out. It I that good, I really think the brown sugar is what gives it the real carroty cake taste. No really-I’ll be making lots more, you and I both know that.
On a separate note-someone asked how I create so many different pancake and waffle recipes. I don’t create them all from scratch bur rather enhance old recipes. I have a base recipe that works for me and normally add in different mix ins depending on the flavor I want. I have a huge sweet tooth so I get inspired by many different cakes and cookie recipes. I’m always up for new ideas though because my feeble mind can only handle so much with math.
Question for you:
1. Have you ever had a coffee situation?
2. Any more dessert pancake/waffle that should be recreated?
