Welcome to the second edition of Chef C.J.’s Galactic Culinary Exploits! I feel like it should have a fun acronym, but I don’t know if CCGCE really flows off the tongue… What do you think?
This time we’re making C-3PO Pancakes, the second recipe from Wookie Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes. These golden pancakes are topped with a delicious pineapple ring, reminiscent of everyone’s favorite uptight droid.
To begin, make sure you have all your ingredients ready.
(And watch out for peeping jawas.)
Step one: Make the batter.
I didn’t get any eggshells in it or anything!
Step two: Ignore the recipe when it tells you to brush the pan with melted butter.
The butter will go crazy and smoke and burn the pancake.
Then when it tells you to re-brush the pan after each cake you will burn the brush.
Then you will be sad.
Step three: Use Pam and make beautiful pancakes.
(Still be wary of burning though, I had to turn down the heat and cut down the time as well).
Step four: Now that we’re back on track, slap a pineapple ring on there for droidy goodness.
Can’t you just see him standing there, distraught, in the the deserts of Tatooine?
Step five: Keep them warm in the oven while you make more.
I thought this was just brilliant, and it can be used for more than just C-3POs!
Step six: Just cook the rest of the batter and you’ll have a plateful of delicious pancakes warm and ready to eat. I don’t think they even need butter and syrup, the juicy pineapples make them scrumptious enough to eat like cookies!
Take this opportunity to take silly droid pictures.
On a scale of The Emperor to Yoda, I’d give these a Luke Skywalker (7/10) because they started out annoying but turned out well.
