The other day I had the most amazing breakfast — made by the head chef at Rainbow Drive-In, no less.
And no, it didn’t involve two scoops of rice and mac salad.
He served us peanut butter and jelly sandwiches — on white bread, this is key — dunked in pancake batter, deep-fried, then doused in sugar.
Oh, I can’t tell you how good it was.
So my mom and I — with the help of my dad, who manned the sugar — tried to recreate this breakfast sensation. In the process, I think we improved on it, changing up the fillings and realizing there’s so much more we can do with this recipe.
Here’s what we did:
You can make instant malassadas by dunking pieces of white bread into this batter and frying it. But we made sandwiches with the white bread — filled it with peanut butter and jelly, cream cheese and a lilikoi spread, even sausages — then battered and deep-fried it. We cut the sandwich bread into eighths, which helped.
Used to make instant malassadas
1 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup milk
Mix. Coat pieces of white bread — filled or not — with batter and place into deep fryer.
….and here i thought i invented that ,one post New Year’s Eve hangover when i dropped my p & j sandwich in the wife’s chicken fryer.
LOL, that’s how most things get invented!
Wonder what that would taste like with honey in the middle instead of PB&J.
Probably ridiculously good!
You get plus points for no crust!
Hey, I wanted it to TASTE GOOD 🙂
A new fuud truck fuud!
Isn’t there a truck like that already……..?
I’m a pancake man myself… that sounds soooooooo ono!!!
Pancake batter is a wonderful thing. Truly versatile. I’m a believer!
Now I need breakfast…
I’m hungry, too. I could use an acai bowl right now.
wonder how to make that healthier. HA HA!
Which ones were the best? They all sound so good. Especially the cream cheese and lilikoi spread. The sausage sounds good too tho,
I liked the PB&J, actually. That was my favorite. I bet Nutella would be good, too, but we didn’t have…
