Twinkie Tuesdays 3: Crapcakes


"This recipe was inspired by Shrek Twinkies, which were made with green filling and in stores when the movie came out on DVD. One night I had a Shrek movie party for my grandkids. The next morning I wanted to make something memorable for breakfast, so I created Twinkie pancakes. The kids said the green color spots made them look really cool."
JERRY FERRILL, COLUMBUS, OHIO


(Note that the food stylists modified the recipe and decided against using the green filling variety)

Twinkie Pancakes
6 Twinkies
4 cups prepared pancake batter
Butter or margarine for serving (optional)
Pancake syrup, for serving (optional)

Slice each Twinkie crosswise into 8 thin slices. Spray a griddle or skillet with nonstick vegetable oil spray or brush lightly with vegetable oil. Heat the griddle over medium-high heat.

Pour 1/4-cup measures of the pancake batter onto the hot griddle, spacing them apart. Arrange 3 Twinkie slices in each pancake. Cook until the pancake begins to bubble and is golden brown on the underside. Carefully turn the pancakes and cook the second side. Serve immediately with butter and syrup.

I love how the always have to add "serve immediately," in case you get to the end and need further direction. (Click Twinkie Tuesdays to see the rest of the recipes.)
