Although my lovely daughter’s birthday is not until Monday, I made this pancake because I don’t typically have time to make pancakes on weekdays. I think she likes animal shaped pancakes better than this kind of thing, but she seemed pretty happy with it.
In a plot involving Nazi double agents, Kurt Vonnegut’s novel, Mother Night, explores the idea that you are what you pretend to be. Althoug no Nazis were involved in the making of this pancake I like to think that it IS a birthday cake in some deeper sense. I recommend the Vonnegut book or the Nick Nolte film of the same name or maybe just a pancake.
