Star Wars Pancakes


Hello my name is Tiffany and I'm married to a Star Wars fan...

In many ways its helped us. We learned to compromise early in our marriage. When we first bought our house I knew the housing of his "collectibles" would be an issue. Hubby came to me and said, "I'll make you a deal. If you give me a room for my collection you won't see them around the house."

It was the easiest decision I ever made.

So while his collection resides in one of the guest rooms, there are the other concessions I have made. We went to the midnight showings of both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith in which I saw certain other fans recreating scenes from the movie and in costume while we waited in line....

Wow.

But while we were on vacation in Miami his concession was going into Williams Sonoma...And while I was looking through some cookbooks, I heard my husband take a deep breath and say "OMG, turn around" and we found a Star Wars display with pancake molds and cookie cutters...


It was the only time he had a good time in Williams Sonoma.

Easy Pancake Batter for your Star Wars Pancakes
2 cups Self Rising Flour
2 cups Buttermilk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1 large egg

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix together with a whisk. If using the pancake molds I suggest you grease them with some vegetable oil to prevent sticking. I used my own squeeze bottle with the top cut off (larger than normal) and poured the pancake batter in it, so you can be more precise when you put the pancake batter in the molds. You can also buy a special "pancake pen" for $20 at Williams Sonoma.. Whatever...

  2. I'm not a huge star wars fan. I never seem to be able to finished a star wars movie specially the earlier years. However, I love anything star wars toys, shirts you name it I like and thestar wars pancake mold and cookie cutter is just to die for!

    I guess I'm kinda a fan or maybe it's just that I love adorable kitchen gadgets ^_^

  3. My boyfriend is a Star Wars fan...as far as I can tell he doesn't have a lot of collectibles (or maybe he just hides them from me)! But he sure would love these pancakes. I bet he'll go to Williams Sonoma with me now!
