And Now For Something Completely Different...

Yeah, two posts in a row. I just couldn't stick these two together. So along with the more conventional and arguably better tasting french toast, I also made...

Pancakes? What's wrong with pancakes you say? Well, nothing really. Pancakes with a can of Mountain Dew isn't exactly a breakfast of champions but you know...oh, wait. I combined the two. Yep. Mountain Dew pancakes. I couldn't help myself. After a friend told me about his disastrous Mountain Dew pancake making experience, I was way too intrigued not to try it myself. I was determined to do (Dew? Ha...) it better. 
They look so innocent! 

I just took a basic pancake recipe and replaced the milk with Mountain Dew. I didn't have any pancake mix or I would have just done it that way, I encourage you to mess around, try different sodas, etc. Oh, how did they taste? Well....they were okay. My friends may disagree with me, but I couldn't taste the soda at all. I'm glad I tried it. I ended up leaving most of them on top of the heater by the door. 

They got eaten...

Mountain Dew Pancakes
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups Mountain Dew 
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  • 2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.


  1. All except for a blackened one at the bottom. They were mysterious and alluring.

  2. I like the off the beaten path trials. Sounds like something I would try ;-) Glad you had some fun with this!


Comments make me so happy. I try to respond to each and every one of them!
