Experimental Love Pancakes

can YOU do it? yes U CAN!

The word around here has been “present”. What does it mean? It means something like this:

Living and loving the moment. I think it also means: being like a child. … You know? …

Where you just do stuff because you’re excited and passionate. You don’t need a reason.

…such is my story of Love Pancakes…

Kay. You know you wind up coming in contact with these big zucchinis? Some one gave you a big bag full? No? Well, if you’re not so lucky, just imagine…zucchini

You’re living your life. La-la-la… everything is pretty ordinary and yeah, you have hopes ad dreams, but you have to pay the bills; so, so. So-so. You know? You forget about your dreams. But then…

But then someone comes along with this great fantastic wonderful amazing heartfelt gift!!!! (Truth is they haven’t a clue what to do with the gift and so they give it to you. (((((So what. GO WITH THE HEARTFELT!!! THEY WERE TRYING!!!!!)))) ….

So anyways, the heartfelt gift as per above was and were these amazing GIANT ZUCCHINIS!!!

What to do?

I’ll tell you what to do! MAKE ZUCCHINI PANCAKES!!!  pancakesAnd NEVER EVER LOOK BACK ON YOUR DECISION. It won’t turn you into a Cliphosh or a Mandrake or anything. I promise.


Git yurself sum sourdoh sterter. it need be done easy like. Just take a cup rye flour and a cup water (more er less to a thicky type paste) Stir it up like you know. Cover but let breath a little every so often. Give it a wish and a dream if you know what I mean. In a few days after sum stirrin’, it should be a bubblin’ and smell kindu lika well, have fermentin’ like. …

Ok.. You can also do sumin better scientific like searches for starters, but me point is: it’s not so hard as they make it.

BUT!  If you have such a critter as a STARTER on your shelf. Take a portion (no exact amount just steal from it) and add it to these pancakes:

4 cups Barley Flour
4 Tbsp sugar or honey or whatever suits your fancy
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs plus enough milk to 4 cups of liquid (using powdered milk is more economical– that or even frozen plain yogurt that you got on sale and froze and then added water to the concoction. You get the idea. Just make do with what you have. Got no milk? Oh well. Do without.

Kay where em I? … Oh yeah…
These are spozed ta be’in Zuchs Paneekakes right?
Well allz ya gotta do is have yer fancy kitchen prep person have chopped sum a yer zucchini fer ya and cooked it a little so it’s already a bit soft.

Ifn ya drop yer zucchini into yer batter and stir it and it’s nice and thick, then flibber me gibber ya got yerself a pancake dough. If the dough seems runny when ya do yer first cakes, then just add sum’mer barley flour to yer mix.

Oh and fry these on a nice hot griddle, but use whatever fat ya have saved. Be frugal with ya fats. Theyz a good thing really. Contrary like what theyz say in the public media king thing. Cause ya know theyz only feedin peeple with the white deminerlized flour and such and ya know the path where that leads. Ooh I hate ta even magine. Let me live on real stuff folks. Let it be for me kids and grandkids.

God done bless ya all already. But let ‘im do it a second and third time everlasting fer me.

(In seriousness… just add your starter to your pancake dough. Add whatever you want to add– be it zucchinis, apples… or even if you’re wanting to do savory pancakes and forget sugars so much and do onions mushrooms… the point is that your dough be really nice and thick and just feel really free to have fun and experiment. It’s a pancake for cryin’ out loud. It’ll forgive you.” :) :) :)
