Dreams do come true: Mac-n-cheese pancakes

There are certain foods that will forever be hard to resist: pizza, pancakes, warm chocolate cake, macaroni and cheese, and the list goes on. Though they all score high on the taste scale, this does not necessarily mean that two or more of these dishes should be served on the same plate, let alone combined! While this recipe might seem a bit odd at first, you'll certainly be happy you took the risk! 

You will need (for three people):

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 7 oz yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 9 oz cooked macaroni
  • 3 oz grated cheese
  • oil for the pan

Here's how:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a second bowl, mix the yogurt, egg, melted butter, and water thoroughly. Pour the dry ingredients from the first bowl into the yogurt mix, and mix until smooth.   
  2. Now fold the macaroni noodles along with the cheese into the batter.
  3. Finally, spoon the macaroni batter into a heated frying pan, shape into a circle, and cook until golden. 

The savory flavour of mac-n-cheese combined with that perfect pancake shape and stackability — what more could you ask for? It’s too bad that all tasty treats don't merge so well. While pizza à la mode may, um, remain on the sidelines, mac-n-cheese pancakes can certainly take their place on your list on menu favorites. Enjoy!
