For the 25th week of SMPX we wanted to do something really weird. To get into the holiday spirit, we decided on peppermint pancakes. We crushed up two candy canes (one super fine and one in big chunks) and added them to the batter.
The result: good. They were sweet and minty and fun and looked festive. The peppermint flavor wasn't too strong, and the candy bits reminded me of an DQ Blizzard. Except, you know, with pancakes instead of ice cream.
We give candy cane pancakes 3.5/5 stars. Next week: continuing the holiday theme with eggnog pancakes. (Thanks for the suggestion, literaryone!)
