Can you guess what my favorite cartoon is?
I'll give you a hint. I named my cats Finn and Marceline.
Adventure Time! I think it's one of the few shows that both adults AND kids can enjoy on the same level. It's smart and sweet while also being a whole lot of fun. So when the Nomicon blogger group decided to do a day of Toon Food, I knew what show I'd be representing!
But what to make? Jake's Perfect Sandwich (oh man I wanted to, but lobster soul is hard to come by!)? Princess Bubblegum Cupcakes? Treetrunk's Apple Pie?
Oh guys. Isn't it obvious?
Jake's Bacon Pancakes (Adventure Time)
- 2 cups flour
- 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled*
- 1 tbsp apple pie spice
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 tbsp bourbon
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
-In a small saucepan over medium heat, brown the butter--let it froth and boil until it turns a caramel color and smells nutty--then take off the heat and let it cool until lukewarm.
-Sift together the flour, apple pie spice, and baking powder.
-In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk, bourbon, and browned butter. Slowly add the dry ingredients, stirring constantly. Fold in the dark chocolate chips.
-Pour batter by the 1/3rd cupful onto a hot skillet. Cook each side for about three minutes, until golden brown. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
*for extra bacon flavor, leave the grease in the pan and cook your pancakes in it! I even subbed in a tablespoon of butter for a tablespoon of bacon grease.
