Crunchy – check. Sweet – check. Salty – check. Delicious – duhhh. I absolutely love caramel corn. It certainly is near the top of my list of the best ways to eat popcorn – along with the kettle corn you … Continue reading
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a recipe with peanut butter in it, but don’t fret I’ve still been eating it on the regular. I’ve been wanting to make these cookies for awhile, but thought I should wait until I … Continue reading
Hello friends. Are you getting your daily dose of veggies? Well if not then this should do the trick I made this for a good start to December. Eating all your veggies gives you the right to eat Christmas cookies … Continue reading
It’s starting to turn into fall here in Istanbul. Leaves are falling, the rains are coming and the temperatures are hovering in the 60s. My hair tells me that the humidity is still present though…something I am not sure ever … Continue reading
While my parents were here I invested a few lira into two really cute bundt pans. Until this bread I had not taken advantage of my new baking purchases. Fear no more. Now the bundt pans are unfortunately not the … Continue reading
This recipe did not disappoint. Nope not one bit (or bite) and I don’t think it will disappoint for you either. I mentioned my obsession with making crepes in my October Earworms, but maybe I didn’t tell the Whole Truth. … Continue reading
One’s consumption of Nutella is directly proportional to whether or not they are/or have studied abroad. It becomes many people’s replacement for the less than lacking availability of good peanut butter. In the US you have the easy peanut butter cookie … Continue reading
That’s right – 2 ingredient pancakes.
The peanut butter gets all nice and melty too!
Sounds too good to be true? Yeah I thought the same when I first read about these little fellas over on Carrots ‘N’ Cake.
Naturally the day I read the blog I had to give them a try for myself. Not to mention I am without my awesome host mom so have been back to cooking for myself (aka eating straight up veggies and fruit and soup because well I don’t wanna buy anything to make food since I leave in 2 (TWO) days for Istanbul.
Gosh there is that magical number of 2 (TWO) again!!!!
Now the first time I made these I attempted one large pancake and well I should’ve listened to my inner voice saying “Nat you suck at making big pancakes, small pancakes you rock at, but just like you are junk at big cookies, your big pancakes are nothing less than garbage”. Well I didn’t listen to my inner voice so my horrible “big pancake skills” combined with sans non-stick pan left me with more of a pile of pancake than one big grand pancake. Now I figured the NEXT time I make these pancakes I will take my “small” approach – and that approach was a lot more successful.
Way more success – way way way more success.
So you want some of my 2 ingredient pancakes too? Sorry I missed that – I couldn’t hear you since I was lost in a world of guilty pleasure that includes two of my favorite things of nanners and pb.
Maybe next time I will share…keyworld being maybe.
Ingredients: (from Carrots ‘N’ Cake – her secret tips to the perfect 2 ingredient pancake are included too)
Toppings – fresh fruit, pb, other nut butters, honey, nuts
Mash banana, crack egg and mix into the mashed banana. Make sure it is as homogenous a mixture as possible. Heat a pan on low-medium heat. Wait for the pan to heat up – biggest trick to checking that the pan is hot enough is that water droplets will skip across the pan. Then lightly oil and pour about 2-3 Tbsp. of your pancake batter. The trick to these little fellows is patience. Super hard – I know. But wait until there are bubbles in the middle of the pancakes before you flip. Then wait a few more minutes while your second side cooks. Plate, top and gobble away. But try to breathe while eating – it will make the indulgence last one second longer (:
Second upside to these babies – they are soft – super necessary after wearing my retainers for the first time in like a month – my teeth are sore – gahh.
Third upside – you can blast Jack Johnson and have no shame – really – no shame.
Fourth upside – food art is also acceptable – no shame – no shame whatsoever
