Pancake Tuesday

5 Mar

Don’t forget to eat pancakes today!

Happy-Pancake-Tuesday

There, that is my good deed done for the week. πŸ˜‰

Every year when Pancake Tuesday rolls around I promise myself I will remember on the day and eat some pancakes. And every year I forget and clue in a couple days later that I missed the day. sigh.

But not this year!

This year I was making tea and pondering what I was going to eat when out of nowhere my brain did something useful, it remembered that today is Tuesday, and not just any Tuesday but pancake Tuesday, and boom! Pancakes were made!

Well, protein cakes, which is basically a pancake just not quite, shrug.

I used the Kodiak Cake mix, usually I make it using the powder and water combo but I decided to up the protein this time around and made it with the milk and egg and powder. In my world a pancake should be thick and fluffy and these came out runny and thin, so not the best, but they tasted fine, I just had to adjust my expectations for how thick and fluffy I wanted them to be. No biggy.

No pictures were taken of my Kodiak Cakes because they were so incredibly not photo worthy, oops! Good thing I’m not a food blogger lol

Enjoy your pancakes! πŸ™‚

Kodiak Cakes

Oh Kodiak Cakes, how I will miss you!

Kodiak Cakes, in case you don’t know, are a high protein pancake / waffle mix that make a pretty decent pancake. I don’t have a waffle maker so I can’t say from actual experience how the waffles made with this mix are but I’m sure they are also good.

An Aunt Jemima pancake they are not! Don’t be tricked in to thinking they will be just like the pancakes you get from iHop or that you ate growing up as a kid, before we all got convinced white flour is devil food and never to be touched *rolls eyes*

Despite not being like a “real” pancake, they are good, and a less guilty indulgence on a lazy morning day when you have time and the inclination to whip up some pancake goodness.

Sadly though, I ate my last Kodiak Cake today and will not be buying more. Not because I don’t want to be buying more, but because Costco has stopped carrying them (meanies!) and the closest place to me to buy them is a Safeway that is an hours drive across the border into the States. sigh.

Every time I am in Costco I ask if they have them back yet, maybe nagging them will change their minds?

Kodiak Cakes covered in PB2, Mmm!

So there they are, my last two Kodiak Cakes, I savoured every bite, *wistful sigh* Oh, and no, I don’t eat them with syrup, I regret to inform you I stopped eating syrup due to the high sugar content, ugh, who have I become? πŸ˜‰ Instead I took two tablespoons of PB2 powder, added water, made it pretty close to peanut butter consistency and spread it on the Kodiak Cakes when they were still hot. It actually tastes good despite my being all whiny that I no longer eat syrup lol I use PB2 on a lot of things, quite the useful little food!

If you live somewhere that still has access to Kodiak Cakes I highly recommend giving them a try, and hey, if you end up not liking them send the rest of the mix to me, I’ll eat it! πŸ˜‰ lol

(fyi, that is a joke! )
