Confessions of a Pancake Queen: The Rockstar Edition

Testing…testing…
Geez, is this thing on??

*clears throat*

Happ-yyyyyyyyyyy PANCAKE Sundaaaaaaaaay!!

Um, yeah…so it’s been a while, huh? I was honestly starting to think that after SIX months, I might never flip again! But lo and behold, here I am! That’s right folks, your Pancake Queen is BACK! Now, cue the slow clap and start the chant…

KISS My Pancake

KISS…my…PANCAKE!!! 😉

It happened one regular Thursday morning…after weeks of toying with the idea of pulling out the old griddle, I finally gave in. It was nerve-racking to say the least. What if I forgot how? What if all the stressors of calorie counts come back? WHAT if they end up tasting like cardboard?!

To help put my mind at ease, I threw on my fluffy QUEENLY robe, grabbed my ROYAL spatula, pulled up my favorite playlist on my iPod IMPERIAL auditory device and hit shuffle…

♫ Is this love…that I’m feelin’ FLIPPIN? ♫

What? I told you I was a total ROCKSTAR! And yeah, I may or may not have tied scarves to my spatula and used it as a microphone while I was anxiously waiting to flip! Obviously, plants aren’t the only things that take well to the musical environment because these babies they came out perfectly on the FIRST try! They’re superhuman, hippie-fied, and OH sooooooo SEXY on the inside! 😉

Not a single thought or worry over calories, fat grams, or sugar entered my head once I took that first bite…and cardboard was the absolute FURTHEST thing from my mind. The texture was unreal…so soft and cakey! And the juicy raspberries were like little “pops” of surprises scattered throughout! I used coconut-flavored Yoplait Greek yogurt for sauce along with some crunchy toppings, but if you go with a non-dairy yogurt, these babies can also be completely DAIRY-FREE!!

Sorry for the overabundance of exclamation points, but if you can’t tell, I’m a little excited to be back!!…!!!!!!!!

Now please, get back to your regular scheduled weekending! Just do me a favor…crank up  your favorite tunes, step into your kitchen, grab a spatula, spoon, or hell, even a turkey baster (that thing has to get used more than ONCE a year!), and get in touch with your inner Martha Tyler…you have my royal permission! 😉

When’s the last time you rocked out?

Are you celebrating Pancake Sunday with me today?

  1. Yum!! Yay I’m so glad you pulled out your griddle pan again and made these bad boys!! They look delicious! I unfortunately saw these too late to join you in pancake Sunday but I’m adding it to my list so I can make them one Sunday soon!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Thank you and I really hope you do, Jan! They were SO good, I think I almost shed a tear with my last bite! Haha! Let me know what you think if you try them!

  2. Welcome back, lady!! I have to admit, I can just picture you dancing around your kitchen, rock music blasting, waiting to flip some delicious pancakes. Or maybe, I can picture myself doing it too… Maybe that’s why we get along so well, we special. 😉

  3. Happy to see the pancakes return! And now I may end up with a pancake-ified version of Guns N Roses and Def Leppard in my head for the remainder of the day…so thanks for that 😉

  4. woo hoo the pancake queen is BACK. and calories should never be a thought if you know you are using nutritionally dense ingredients, which i know you do. that’s what you need to focus on. nutrition, not numbers, because if the nutrition is there, the numbers don’t matter. all will fall into place.

    and let’s be honest, with as amazing as those look, i really wouldn’t care about nutrition or numbers, because there would be heaven in my mouth!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      You are SO right, Debbie! And thank you! I’m so proud that I can actually do that now…like I said last week, I’m really feeling so much more “normal” now! It’s incredible!

  5. Woohoo so happy to see the return of the pancake queen! You’re making me wish I had pancakes for breakfast this morning instead of oatmeal. 😛

  6. I think we can safely say that you definitely did NOT lose your touch. Holy flippin’ amazingness these look good… and I’m not even much of a pancake person. I know, I know… blasphemy. But I’m leaving the pancakes to you and sticking to my cereal, oatmeal, and yogurt messes :)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I know, I know…I may never convert you to the “dark side” but I’ll let it slide since you’re one of the only people out there who can make me drool over a bowl of cereal! 😉

  7. Wow, those pancakes look fabulous! I would love to try making them without eggs, though I am not sure how that would turn out. Oh well, it’s worth a try–after all, what’s the worst thing that could happen, right?? Alas, I did not have pancakes today; instead, I chowed down on some chocolate-date-lemon truffles and vegan chocolate chip oatmeal bars instead. I love all your rock song references; I have recently gotten more into older rock songs (thanks to Pandora), and I find them much more appealing than most of the pop songs nowadays.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh yes! So happy to hear you’re rocking to the REAL stuff! That is why they are called classssssssICS! Music these days isn’t even music anymore…just a catchy beat with random words thrown in…so sad!

      If you want to go egg-free with these, I’d replace some of coconut flour with regular flour since it can be pretty tricky balancing the liquid to dry when it comes to coconut flour…I’ve seen my fair share of what I like to call “slop”cakes! They never cook all the way through and when you go to flip them, it’s just a big ole mess! :(

  8. Holy Guns’n Pancakes!!! Girl, we are pancakes twins today, though I am definitely the butler here!! These look so good and fresh and I am extremely in love with the ingredient list!! As said, I spent time in the kitchen too with pancakes and kabocha and I ROCKED the microphone (it was the spatula, the cinnamon jar, a zucchini or the fork before i digged in!!) :-)

  9. You came back to meeeeee, my Paradise City Pancake Queen! I heart you cna your pancakes. What’s funny is that I made this in oatmeal form this morning (which cocoa powder). What I really wanted to pancakes though. I should have read you blog first. Grrrr… BRINNER!!!

  10. Welcome back Pancake Queen. It’s nice to see you around these parts again, and it’s nice to see you rocking out in the kitchen again. You have been on a total roll this week! And you included my favorite summer fruit: raspberries. Be still my heart.

  11. You definitely have the most beautiful pancake pictures EVER! You always make me majorly crave them!

  12. It was time for the Queen to take the thrown again….wow, I don’t know of any other queens who possess so many crowns…Pancake Crown. Sandwich Crown. Nut Butter hoarding Crown.

    Never thought to chuck raspberries in the batter- noted!

  13. welcome back old friend! You’ve been missed!

  14. Yay!!! The pancake Queen is back!! These sound amazing!!! :)

  16. Love this flavor combo! I just ate my last coconut yo last night…time to go restock!

  17. Photoshop to the rescue! Well, not that your pictures ever need rescuing, but I’m just laughing out loud at the rockstar image imposed with the pancake bite shot. I think it should be a weekly occurrence of pasting pancake bites on the most random of pictures. Haha. Future contenders: Obama. The Pope. Scooby Doo (because he should always be included no matter what!)… Pro Wrestlers (they always are yelling with their mouths open so it just sets up the perfect “about to eat” picture, am I right? 😉 ).

    I was super excited to see another Pancake Queen post in my blog reader after all this time!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh Madison!! You just MADE my night! I couldn’t help but laugh out loud once I read Scooby Doo! He SHOULD always be included, shouldn’t he? And now you’ve got my wheels turning to see how I could incorporate that into my next post! Haha!

  18. You definitely have a knack for making them look enticing. It puts my breakfast protein shake to shame. Maybe you’re “In a New York Pancake State of Mind?”

  19. These look awesome chica!! I actually have all these flours too, so I may have to give em a whirl….

    and sing some GnR while I’m at it 😉

  20. PS: I wanna make out with you for photoshopping that first one, so funny.
