#pancaketweetup.

Looks like the first-ever #pancaketweetup was a multimedia, albeit modest, success. Kudos to co-creator Lane Joplin, whose pancakes looked much better than mine, and the various Twitters and bloggers who participated. There were some waffles, and some people who had to participate late or early, but it was all in good fun. And good food. Even if I learned it’s difficult to make pancakes, take and upload pictures and tweet all at the same time.

Developed a short (1:17) video snippet for a little flavor from Tim’s kitchen:

Photos? You betcha! (A few more in this Facebook photo album.)

The price of New Hope Mills wheat pancake mix went from $1.99 to $3 in between times I bought it? Inconceivable!

The one and only Brad J. Ward provided a live video stream of making waffles.

All the fixin's: Note that I don't use eggs, so I have to experiment between the level of mix and half-n-half for consistency.

First one was doughy and thick; had to adjust by adding more half-n-half to the mix.

By the second pancake, the mix was better, but all that multitasking meant they came out a tad burned.

Yum!

Thanks to all who participated. If you didn’t we hope you’ll join us if we do this again!

EDIT/UPDATE: Lane has posted a great #pancaketweetup video. Enjoy.

  1. First of all, props on choosing New Hope for this momentous occasion. Second of all, props on the vid, very entertaining.
    The quality of the pancakes are debatable. Hope they were good! I’m so going to smoke you (in flavor, not actual cooking) at the next pancake tweetup.
    Seriously, I am sad I missed this one, especially during my post-race carb-loading phase!

    Oh the crazy adventures you have

    SHANE: Even bad pancakes are better than plenty of other food. We’ll be doing another one next month … we’ll let you know so you can mark your calendar!

    LAURA: Maybe you can chime in with campfire-made pancakes next time you’re out on a hike! Or would those be considered flapjacks, perhaps?
