In this week’s installment of Breakfast Jamz: Shannon and the Clams’ Shannon Shaw makes us her super secret, tasty, crispy badass pancakes! We call them Shan-Cakes. Clam-Cakes was a close contender but it seemed misleading.. They’re super flavorful, and, owing to some top-secret ingredients, will be a hit at any drunk morning party! Start with Secret Ingredient #1: Bisquick!
“I love Bisquick,” Shannon says. Simply mix it up the way it tells you to on the box.
OK, here’s Secret Ingredient #2: When it calls for milk, use this stuff:
It will add a sweet dimension to the cakes that helps to erase the rotten, stale Michelob and tequila residue coating your hungover digestive tract. It also helps to have a birthday cake like this laying around, makes for good conversation, and it contributes to the sense of a warm, loving kitchen.
“This is just the head, he used to have a candy bandolero.”
Secret Ingredient #3…… When it comes time to grease the pan use coconut oil!
“It’s really good for you” Shannon says.* Cooking them in coconut oil adds a one-of-a-kind crisp, and also makes them the greasiest pancakes you’ll ever pick up with your hands.
(*Coconut oil is not really good for you)
In the meantime chop up some fruit! Pears for example.
In the end you’ll have a tasty stack to split with your friends:
Dot the plate with some maple-syrup sperms and call it a morning. A great way to start the day! Thanks Shannon!
