Tasty Tuesday will ordinarily focus on local restaurants that The Kid and I test out for you. This Tasty Tuesday comes courtesy of one of my Rangers (Girl Guides of Canada).
During a recent camp planning meeting K (the Ranger) insisted that we have pancake puffs for breakfast one day. This was a winter camp so we were inside, in a building with full power, hot water, heat, ect - not typical Girl Guide camping - so after she explained what it was, we added it to the menu.
Wondering what a pancake puff is? Well, you are in luck. I liked this idea so much that I made it at home after camp!
Here is what you need:
1. Your favourite pancake recipe
2. A Cake pop Maker
3. Favourite pancake toppings
Put the pancake batter in the cake pop maker, and bake. It took about 4 minutes for the puffs to be fully cooked. K suggests adding in two chocolate chips (and no more than 2!) to make chocolate chip pancake puffs. The Kid does not like anything in her pancakes so these ones were just plain.
I especially love that these are so easy to clean up. It's almost doable on busy work mornings, maybe when The Kid is a bit more helpful in the mornings before school we can start whipping up a batch on a week day morning!
And, I am sure there are some of you out there that are saying Hey! Girls can winter camp! Why are you such a wimp and having them camp indoors? Well, you are right. Girls can winter camp. But here's why we do a residential camp in when we go camping anytime between the end of October and the middle of April.

Close to a foot of snow fell between 8pm Friday and 5am Saturday
Saturday, had to dig my car out to move it closer to the building. So much snow the door wouldn't close when I got in. Ironically, K didn't make it to camp, she was planning to come Saturday morning but got snowed in at home.
Girls adapted their plan and spent hours making super amazing sock monsters.
