The Great Pancake Cook-off

While we were all at the beach, we decided to have a pancake cook-off. Not any pancake cook off... but The Great Perdido Pancake Cook-off. We were hoping that our Dad would be the ultimate judge (he has the most experience with pancakes), but unfortunately he wasn't able to make it.
I knew ahead and packed accordingly. I planned to make my sourdough pancakes (knowing dad is partial to sourdough). I put the sourdough starter in a zip loc bag and packed the dry ingredients separately. A little butter and Aunt Jemima on top and they were fantastic.

My sister was a little more sneaky... I should have known when she was buying a pancake MIX, chocolate chips, coconut and almonds. I think her secret was the light Aunt Jemima syrup- at least that kept us from all going into a sugar coma. Her almond joy pancakes were announced the winner.
I hate to loose!
Just wait till next year...

You are right, The Col. would have chosen the Sourdough....but I had the chocolate advantage and the kids vote! Next year everyone will be over 21...that gives me an idea! Hugs!
