Recipe of the Week

When you live at home with your parents and don't have to go to work, you have lots of time to make new recipes! So although they will not be "college dining hall" recipes, I can still make lots of food, take pictures of it, and feel like I'm doing it for a purpose.

And there is always a purpose for pancakes at midnight. Especially these.

This is the European alternative to peanut butter, and it's made of crushed up cookies. Delicious.
So what you do is make your pancakes. Here is the old Betty Crocker recipe again, in case you are not as obsessed as me and don't have it memorized:
1 egg
1 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1 tbs sugar
2 tbs vegetable oil
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
And mix!
But then, once it's all mixed up, stir in a BIG spoonful of Biscoff spread. The color of the batter will change a little bit. I just take a spoon and dig out a huge scoop to mix in, but you can mix in more or less, depending on your preferences. With the amount I used, you can just taste a hint of something especially sweet, and it spices up your normal pancake flavor without overpowering it. Also, chocolate chips. Because if you can't add melted cheese, use melted chocolate.

I give you Biscoff Chocolate Chip Pancakes! On an unrelated note, if you're using your new no-stick frying pan, you do not need to add oil or the pancakes may become so slippery that you cannot flip them over!
