The number 13 by superstion standards is said to be a very unlucky number, especially if it falls on a Friday.
I've even heard of some people forbidding themselves from stepping one foot out of the house on Friday the 13th......maybe for fear of encountering a crazed weapon wielding man decked out in a super scary hockey mask.
Yeah, it's funny how no one is at all terrified by a group of men on ice with long wooden sticks wearing them, but insert just a single man dressed in dark clothes slinking around your living room walls wearing one....... and that is a recipe for pure unadulterated fear!
Okay, okay so now that I've given myself chills, I will now say that the number 13 has been nothing but lucky for me, well at least so far in the year 2013. Why do you ask?
Well it's because this was the year that I posted one of my all time favorite recipe ideas and it became an instant internet sensation!
When I posted my Churro Waffles , I could have never imagined that I would receive so much amor here, and here, oh and here too! Not to mention that amount of pins they received on Pintrest ,here, here and here! ( Disclaimer, if you've never been to Pintrest this is a warning it is Highly, Highly addictive!)
So after all this overwhelming attention and enthusiasm for my Churro Waffle recipe.....what was a girl to do? Sit back and enjoy the honor?....
Nope,it was time to continue making your mornings just a little bit sweeter, actually a lot a bit sweeter. So I figured why let waffles have all the sugar-coated fun?
These are, fluffy, cinnamony-sugar infused goodness. Just as equally scrumptious as it's velvety primo ( cousin) the waffle, just in a different outfit! So I present to you Churro Pancakes!
I've been dying to try this IHOP Pancake Copycat Recipe and I figured what could be better infusing yummy Churros with IHOP Pancakes!......Umm! Nothing!
1 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. Baking soda
pinch of salt
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 c. buttermilk
2 Tbsp. melted butter
1/4 c. sugar
For Churro Topping-
1 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of cinnamon
1/2 cup of melted butter
chocolate syrup drizzle
1.Stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder,and salt. Mix the egg with the buttermilk and add to the flour mixture, stirring only until smooth.
2.Add the melted butter and sugar. Fry on a greased griddle.
3.Once fully cooked immediately pour melted butter on each side of the pancake, than dip each buttered side into your cinnamon/sugar churro mixture.
4. Forget coffee, proceed to wonder how you ever managed to live without these in your mornings ever before?!
Oh and by the way, regular Churros are sometimes served with or stuffed with rich creamy chocolate sauce. Because it's always great to experience Churros in many different ways I added a little chocolate drizzle to these pancakes. It's okay you can thank me later!
