Many bloggers fashion themselves foodbloggers with reviews of high end and specialty restaurants. Me, not so much.
My food exploration takes place at home or at a convenience store...
Michele showed me the this page in Martha Stewart Living.
Now, I must agree that Martha is a genius when it comes to innovation in the home. You simply must give her snaps for continuously raising the bar.
But at Cruft Manor, we put a subtle twist on her idea.
I give you Spamcakes!
This is a simple dish with the hardest part being getting a nice look to the spam and not overdoing it.
Just put a spam slice down and pour the batter on top of it. Wait until the bubbles start to form and then flip as you would a regular pancake.
I had a nice serving plate of Spamcakes in no time. Strangely, Michele and the girls wanted nothing to do with the testing.
You have to admit, that looks good. Simpler than Pigs in a Blanket and obviously more fun that using bacon like Martha.
How did it taste? Good.
With hints of cassis, earthy undertones, and whiffs of blackberries. Wait I'm not reviewing wine, where they make the flavors up...
It tasted like a pancake with a crispy bit of salty meat to offset the sweetness of the maple syrup and the softness of the pancake itself.
Give it a try and tell me what you think.Posted by michael at May 19, 2007 04:01 PM
