Pancake Month at Clinton Street

Pancake Tuesday was last month and the good people at Clinton Street decided to celebrate that and Valentine’s day all month long in February and even extended it to a few days in March.

Now, if you know us, you’ll know we are crazy about pancakes. Mrs. Kitchen makes made amazing pancakes and she has refused to make any more since our love affair with Clinton Street started.

Trying out all the pancake flavors on offer for Pancake Month at Clinton Street would have made us broke, but we were able to catch 3 of the 11 different kinds on offer; we don’t know who comes up with these combinations but they all made our mouths water.

The different pancakes that were available on different days were:

  • Raspberry pancakes
  • Fresh coconut pancakes
  • Crunchy bananas
  • Bavarian apple pancakes
  • Japanese pumpkin pancakes
  • Chocolate chunks and fresh raspberries
  • Fresh blackberries
  • Blueberry crumb streusel
  • Black cherries
  • German chocolate pancakes
  • Coconut and key lime pancakes

We had the Japanese pumpkin pancakes, chocolate chunks and fresh raspberries (delivery) and coconut and key lime pancakes.

We have to say that they were all amazing and the flavors came together nicely; their maple butter is deliciously out of this world. We are now starting a pancake fund so that we can try all of the pancake flavors when next they have a Pancake Month 🙂

Happy Pancake Tuesday!

Pancake Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday) is so exciting, but I can’t say the same for the 40-something days that follow. It marks the beginning of the beginning of lent (i.e. the day before Ash Wednesday) in the Christian calender and the countdown to Easter begins.

Tonight, Mr K and I would be making savory pancakes for dinner. We tried them once before and they were very enjoyable.

– We sauteed some peppers and shrimps and then added some smoked salmon bits

– Our pancake batter was the same as normal only with reduced sugar this time

– Then after spooning the batter into the pan, we added bits of the sauteed peppers and co. before flipping

We had them with some eggs and syrup...yum!

It was all sorts of yummy and we’re really looking forward to having them again at dinner tonight.

Lent couldn’t have come at a better time as I feel that we (Nigeria) need alot of prayers and supplications right now. May God answer our prayers.

Joyeux Mardi Gras!

God bless you all.

Mr. + Mrs. K
