I love it how ‘sexy’ and ‘yummy’ blend seamlessly together … recipe sounds excellent, looking forward to trying it. WELL DONE with the comic!
And: I have a cat. When she’s done hunting small animals in the backyard, I may pull her in and see if she wants to try making that whipped cre– better yet, never mind. The thought of microscopic baby bunny and birdie bits in my whipped cream is not appealing.
While I don’t see the come-hither-because-I’m-Zorro-and-I-have-a-lot-of-chest-hair sexy in these pancakes (which might be a good thing because, what, chest hair pancakes!?), I do see the pecans and whipped cream and that always means SEXY FOR MY MOUTH TIME — and all that implies.
Sir, if you made a cookbook of any sort, I would buy it in a heart beat. Because I just made these. And everything said above applies. The only change I made was to separate the egg and beat the white until stiff, then folded it into the batter.
Served with a side of sausage and apple latkes.
It was the best damn dinner I’ve made for myself in a long time. Thank you for the awesome recipe! Now I need to go try the others.
I just finished eating sexy pancakes. My BF made up the batter while I was in class, and he didn’t have any vanilla, but it was still incredible. The Whipper-snap was perfect too. One thing I definitely recommend is if you have the money to be able to do so, spring for pure maple syrup. It is so much more flavorful than the fake maple syrups, so you don’t have to use as much (which means you aren’t drowning your pancakes with the syrup, and the flavor of the cinnamon and apples can shine).
Hey kick ass recipe!
This is the third thing I’ve made of yours I made your bananarama and your 2am chili.
I love comics and love to cook and therefore I love your recipies! So amazing!
I’ve made these pancakes quite a few times and I used my old pancake recipe with it, it is simply delicious! Perfect for fall!
One thing though the bourbon whipped cream came out amazing but 2 teaspoons of bourbon was just too much and it overpowered the amazing taste of the pancakes. So I use just one teaspoon :]
AHHHHHHHHHHH! I’ve been trying to find your website for the longest time. I made your chili and boys wanted to propose to me! Now you have even more amazing recipes! I’m super excited I finally found you. Keep them coming. These look amazing.
I simply enjoy your comics, I have every ambition to try these recipes. Especially these, for my boyfriend when we move in together. I showed him the comic, he said MUST HAVE! Not to mention the 2a.m. Chili.
Please keep these comics going and I certainly will be one of the first in line for a cookbook.
Trade out the apples for some fresh pomegranate. It’s overwhelming. Unfortunately you can’t have leftovers, as the flavor seeps out and becomes completely unable to be tasted after a night in the fridge. Small price to pay.
I have been pleasing my man with ordinary pancakes for years. Occassionally, I shake things up a bit in the kitchen by adding vanilla and brown sugar to the batter. But now I simply must blow him away with this sexy stack of flapjacks! Thanks for keeping my marriage firey 😉
A friend an I made these a few days ago. Despite bungling the pancakes nearly beyond repair (“Oh, shit, the baking powder was measured in teaspoons… not tablespoons.”), not having pecans, apples, bourbon, or syrup (oh, the horror!), we overcame and made a damn fine meal… After we burned the first three pancakes, that is.
We used amaretto in place of bourbon and chopped up almonds instead of pecans. Also, upon realizing we had no syrup, we made our own (sugar, flour, vanilla (lots!), water – simmer in saucepan until syrupy) while the pancakes
Your shit cracks me up. & by shit i mean little cartoon badass man [shit has a positive connotation in my world]. Plus I love pancakes, so you have a cartoon badass man after my own heart. Sigh, l’amour.
Been wanting to make something of yours for a while now… friend came over with the talk of pancakes, not just pancakes, sexy pancakes… Now, I don’t know if this happy feeling I have in my belly is from pancake love or the decent amount of Heaven Hill I put in the cream, but it is super good!
I haven’t had time to try anything yet as I just stumbled across your site but I would like to say that I enjoy the comic-ness very much.
Also, I don’t care what type of syrup you use, I’m from the UK and also a student and I’m not sure what the price is like in America but here real maple syrup is usually about £4 (that’s about $6 AND it’s only a itsy bitsy bottle) and therefore far too expensive (read as: rip-off)
I found your blog by using stumbleupon and I love it so much! This site actually got my husband into cooking so you can use whatever kind of syrup you want as far as I’m concerned 🙂 (referencing all of the uproar regarding sticky condiment choice…who cares?!). I’ll have to try this with bananas too from Karen’s suggestion. Love the blog! Love the style! Looking forward to your book!
I just finished making your sexy pancake recipe and I must say this is an absolutely wonderful recipe. The flavors blend perfectly with one another and the addition of the green apples and pecans give it a nice texture that would be impossible to achieve otherwise. I would make this for guests and I’ll certainly make them again in the future.
Thank you for the recipe and the wonderful website. Both are well done. If I could give you 5 Michelin stars, I would.
PS: I tried one of your chili recipes awhile back and that was good too.
PS: Instead of making whip cream, you should try these with homemade butter. It’s not difficult to make and your recipe has all the ingredients. Adding a bit of coarse salt to the butter would make this whole thing absolutely out of this world.
Sadly, it does have to be this way. I’m gluten intolerant, and trying to make gluten-free flour actually coagulate is reaaaaaaaally hard. But if I use gluten-free Bisquick and add the cinnamon, everything else should be the same…
hey man, just found your site from stumbleupon and love it. about the log cabin…i’ll raise you one aunt jemima…as a kid i ALWAYS preferred it…i’m a fan of syrup on breakfast pork of any and all kinds. my ma tried to get me some replacement that was supposed to be better and i threw a tantrum because i wanted my auntie! to those questioning your syrup prerogative…well, you said “syrup of your choice” on the ingredients list…choose some nine buck a bottle stuff then…so be it…or getcha some karo for 99 cents…
i don’t want to tell you how to do things , but i watch a lot of food network, not that it makes me an expert on cooking or anything. beacause it doesn’t.they do this thing called “the muffin method”. anyways with this they usually mix the “dry”ingredients together. then the “wet” ingredients together. then mix them all together.sugar is considered a “wet” ingredient …just saying. anyways, i like what you do, i’ve stumbled upon your blog many times and i really enjoy it. thanks.
p.s i hope you don’t take anything i said into offense. it was just an observation.
[…] blogs, adore the comic style, the delivery and the recipes are great too! Check out the blog post Sexy Pancakes if you need to be convinced further! Cannot wait for the cookbook that’s scheduled for […]
Just like good accountants should be able to present complicate financial information in an illustrative manner to their clients, good chefs should have the ability to produce state-of-the-art presentations, like yours! Great work!
Have just read the Fargo (ND) public library’s copy of your book, “Cooking Comically”, and enjoyed it. Found an error in the book, which I see you’ve corrected on this site. Book calls for 3.5 CUPS of baking powder in the recipe for Sexy Pancakes (pages 42-45).
Yeah, uh, I followed this same recipe in your book and it said 3 1/2 CUPS of baking powder, rather than the 3 1/2 TEASPOONS this web recipe calls for. Needless to say, it didn’t work out. I’m sure anyone familiar with cooking would pick up on this before actually wasting two whole cans of baking powder, but unfortunately I’m pretty fucking ignorant when it comes to cooking.
