A little while back, YumSugar tasted and reviewed Batter Blaster, the pancake batter in a bottle. While she used the squirt-able batter to make surprisingly good-tasting pancakes, our friends at Grocery Eats recently used their batter blaster to make deep-fried pancakes. At first glance, these crispy pancakes look like delicious funnel cakes. But reading the fine print, one can see they are incredibly oily. I would probably eat one, Paula Deen would probably eat a bunch, but how about you? Would you eat this deep-fried pancake stack?
Every year I always ask YumJimmy if he'll make a cake for my birthday, and every year he says someday. I really thought this was going to be the year, but he had something else up his sleeve. Instead of a birthday cake, he decided to make me birthday doughnuts. The recipe comes from John T. Edge's book Donuts: An American Passion, and it whips up quite quickly. Sadly we were out of powdered sugar, but luckily we had some chocolate that was melted down for a quick glaze. Topped with a layer of hot pink sprinkles, this is one birthday treat to remember!
