Yeh, I should have posted and made my other creation, but thought it would give me an unfair advantage. Use breakfast sausage grease in the batter rather than cooking oil, and add genuine, wild Michigan blueberries. i also have this pumpkin pie pancake recipe that is just like eating the pie, but with my pancake texture. And then, there are those pancakes with the chocolate chips, and peanuts, but I also have these pancakes that taste like banana bread, and don't forget the chocolate pancakes, just perfect to top with Nutella. Oh the list goes on.
But for this contest, it had to be my most basic recipe. So it's alright that you didn't vote fore me. But if your ever in my neck of the woods, and you have a hankering for something a little different, maybe a little special, you know who I am. And don't believe anyone who tells you that Michigan Maple syrup is 2nd to any other maple syrup, anywhere in the world. I've tasted the stuff from St. Joseph's Island, Ontario (mighty good stuff), from the Western end of Ontario, from Sugar Island, Michigan, from Sault Ste. Marie, MI. area, from Vermont, and Maine. In the good years, you can't really tell one from the other. They all come from the same species of maple tree. It just depends on the weather in the area. Some years, the weather favors us. Some years, it favors the East coast, etc.
Now we need to find a rich sponsor, or DC person, who can fly us all onto his/her place for a smoked turkey showdown. 'Cause I'm not smoking 5 or more turkey on my Webber Kettle.
