February Sipdown Prompt – National Pancake and Sticky Bun Day

I thought I had written a prompt that I couldn’t fulfill! I finished Eleven and Mornin’ Waffles and wasn’t sure what to drink for this, so I went with tea the flavor of a pancake or sticky bun.

We haven’t made pancakes in ages, but I do make Dutch Babies, which are also called German Pancakes around here. (Maybe everywhere?) I make caramel apple or blueberry ones, so this tea fits the bill nicely. To boost the correctness of my choice, I ate French Toast Girl Scout cookies with it. All breakfast themed!

I like this tea, and it will be a sipdown next time I drink it. It is over a year and a half old but tastes much the same as when I first got it.

It is a deep, dark, rich tasting tea. This is a burnt caramel flavor to me. The apple hides a bit while the tea is hot, but comes out more as it cools. I did make a second steep (and got a second cookie) and I think I liked the second steep even better. It was still a dark burnt caramel flavor but slightly lighter and with more discernible apple.

Well, honestly it is a prompt for me that I couldn’t fulfill! I have no pancake/sticky bun tea. Well, happpens. And maybe it will appear later in the year and I will be able to mark it later as a sipdown?

You can do any tea with the flavor of a pancake, too, including toppings! A cream tea for the whipped cream, blueberries for blueberry syrup, any fruit topping you would add! It is all open to your interpretation!

You’re making me hungry, ashmanra! Never heard of a Dutch Baby. Sounds like something I need to try making.

derk: I prefer making Dutch babies because you put the skillet in the oven instead of standing at the stove flipping pancakes and burning five of them. It puffs up so nicely and then deflates when you take it out, a bit like a popover. They are so good just topped with fruit and a sprinkle of powdered sugar, or whipped cream, or whatever your heart desires!

This is from my Piper & Leaf subscription for this month. The dry leaf smells lovely and caramely.

Hmm… This is quite odd. It reminds me of curry… I’m not sure if it’s because of the star anise or something else.

It does taste caramel-ish, but it’s more of a dark burnt sugar flavor. I don’t get any apple. Mostly it tastes like spices.

What a strange tea. It’s not awful, but curry isn’t really a flavor that I look for in tea. :P
