About this project

I really like to make pancakes, and I am really darn good at it. I learned to make great pancakes working the breakfast shift at family restaurants. Now I make them at home for my family. I would like to make a pancake for you. 

I will fire up my trusty electric griddle, whip up a nice big batch of pancake mix and then go to town cooking these bad boys up for you! When they are perfectly cooked I will let them cool and then package them up ready for mailing. 

Why? Well, why not? I just think it would be cool to get a Pancake in the Mail. I will use the contributions to keep making pancakes and stock up for making even more. Maybe even do a block pancake party or something. Food is one of the best ways to bring people together, and this project will be my way to bring all of us a little closer.

UPDATE #1

I have had requests for different kinds of pancakes. So I will do this, if funding hits $100 then every $3 and up contributor will get 3 pancakes! One buttermilk, one sourdough, and one gluten-free! Lets keep this ball rolling! I want to cook lots of pancakes!

UPDATE #2

We hit $100! That means 3 pancakes for all $3 and up Contributors!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this very unique project! Now I will be delivering 3 pancakes per contributor, Buttermilk, Sourdough, and Gluten-Free! I have collected recipes for everything and am looking forward to cooking these up. I need help, though. I want to make LOTS of pancakes, so spread the word and let's see how many I get to make in 9 days! 

If I can hit $250, then I will add a 4th pancake to the mail, I am thinking Banana Nutmeg, kind of my own special, very delicious recipe....

UPDATE #3

T-Shirts! I am working with a local company called Life's a Logo to have shirts made! I have also lowered the contribution to $28 to make easier to get one these very limited edition T-Shirts. Get a Shirt and Pancake in the Mail!

UPDATE #4: We hit $250!

This is awesome, now everyone gets a 4th pancake in the mail, my own special recipe Banana-Nutmeg! This is a moist, delicious pancake that tastes great warm with just a little salted butter.

But we can't stop here. So I will up the ante. If we can hit $350, then I will make a video of me cooking your pancakes and I will give everyone my Banana-Nutmeg Pancake Recipe!

The easiest way to hit that goal is for you to upgrade your reward to the T-Shirt level. This gets you the 4 pancakes as well as an "I got my Pancake in the Mail" T-Shirt and custom pancake-shaped card and my undying love and appreciation!

Help me hit this next goal, I want to make lots of pancakes and I want to get these shirts out there.

Thanks everyone and pass the word!

Thanks again!

Risks and challenges

Well, seeing as this is making pancakes and putting them in a stamped envelope, there is practically no reason you should not get a pancake very shorty after the project ends. In fact, it will truly be my pleasure to make sure this succeeds and everyone who funds gets a Pancake in the Mail. The only mishaps I predict are if my griddle goes down or my spatula breaks mid-flip.. but those are pretty easy and quick to overcome.

FAQ

  • If funding reaches $100 I would be happy to research a delicious sourdough pancake recipe and make them.

    Last updated:
  • Safety of the pancake is very important. I will be putting the pancake into a Ziploc baggie and then put that into a nice padded envelope. Because the pancake is nice and flat it should arrive in good condition. I will be sending all pancakes view standard mail. At the end of the funding I will collect all backers shipping information.
