PANCAKE TALK TUESDAY INDEX NO. 19: Blackberry Waffles with Blackberry Cream Butter
Figuring It All Out As We Go!
This week I'm giving you a special recipe of blackberry love.
Recently I was catching up on episodes from my favorite show, Shark Tank. As usual they showcase bright-eyed entrepreneurs with great ideas, and some not so great; but nonetheless, the people are passionate and believe in their product or idea.
On one particular episode I came across a Kodiak Cakes, and I knew I had to try for Pancake Talk Tuesday. I was really interested since they stated the mix was 100% whole grain no added fat and it tastes great. I was surely open to that. I ran to my local Target and purchased two boxes: Whole Wheat Oat & Honey Frontier Flapjack and Waffle Mix and Buttermilk & Honey Frontier Flapjack and Waffle Mix. For this recipe I used the Buttermilk & Honey. I must admit for a girl who loves to do everything from scratch, to just add water to the mix I was pleasantly surprised. The Waffles were delicious! I must admit I am a fan and would purchase this product again. You know your Girl has to reenergize her 60 Day challenge, this would definitely help keep me on track!
The mix is, 100% whole grain wheat flour, 100% whole grain oat flour, non-fat sweet cream buttermilk, dried honey (honey, wheat starch), leavening (sodium bicarbonate, monocalcium phosphate), natural vanilla, egg whites, sea salt. Just add water.May contain traces of soy, peanuts, and other tree nuts. For nutritional facts click here: Buttermilk & Honey Mix
I love the show Shark Tank, it really allows you to see insights on an entrepreneurs thought process and passion. It's a beautiful thing observe someone discovering and producing their purpose.
So here's their pitch:: Kodiak Cakes About the Company: Kodiak Cakes creates 100% whole grain and all natural products that taste amazing. Based on an old Utah family recipe, Kodiak Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mix went from being sold in paper lunch sacks to neighbors out of a red wagon in 1982, to being sold in ski-town gift shops in 1995, to now being sold in over 7000 grocery stores nationwide including Target, Safeway, Meijer, and many more. Our whole grain flapjack and waffle mixes are incredibly light and fluffy and you only add water to make them.
