I love experimenting in the kitchen so that’s how I discovered Mudslide Pancakes. One cold, snowy January morning I decided to conduct such an experiment. A bottle of Kahlua Mudslide mix remained in my fridge after a failed attempt at an “adult” milk shake. Hating to be wasteful, I searched for ways to use this delightful beverage. I’m not sure exactly what inspired me to add this Kahlua Mudslide mix to my pancakes one morning but the result was magical! kI share the pictures and description with my friends and they all want to know how to make these Mudslide Pancakes. Well, I’ll tell you! If you feel adventurous and dig the taste of Kahlua then check out my simple, yet special, recipe:
1 large bottle of pancake mix
Pam or a pat of butter
1 1/2 cups of water
A teaspoon of vanilla
1/3 of Kahlua Mudslide (from your local liquor store)
Follow the instructions on the container of pancake mix by adding 1 1/2 cups of water, the vanilla and the Kahlua Mudslide. Shake the mixture vigorously. While you’re shaking your heart out, spray your skillet with PAM or lubricate it with a pat of butter. Heat the skillet using medium heat. After you shake the batter, check for thickness and consistency. Be sure to shake out all lumps. Your batter should be thick, yet not too thick. Add more Kahlua or water if need be. Slowly pour your batter onto your skillet. Keep the heat at a medium to low temperature so you don’t burn your masterpiece.
Once your pancake is golden brown on both sides spread the Nutella onto each pancake. Slice one banana and add the slices on top and voilà, Mudslide pancakes. Although this recipe contains alcohol, I promise you won’t get drunk! Finally, if you like the to add a savory flavor to this sweet delight then add a few shakes of McCormick’s Chipotle seasoning to your scrambled eggs. This mixture of savory and sweet will surely spice up your breakfast! Please share your favorite kitchen “experiments” below. Also, if you try this recipe please tell me if you enjoy it.
