Yeah. Soak it in.

Scott, who described the pancakes to me as “velvety and always smooth,” credits the dish’s sudden popularity to the delightful accoutrements:

“What takes it over the top are the toppings,” he says. “The salted pecan maple syrup and the white chocolate. And then to bring some balance to the diabetic punch you are getting, there is some sour crème fraiche on top.”

Punch indeed! The saccharine-saturated short stack is definitely not for those devoid of a sweet tooth. There are enough flavors somersaulting over each to give the dish a playful vibrancy.

Even though I only got through about 2/3 of my RV cakes, I was in heaven for every bite. The experience was the perfect way to start a Saturday, or more precisely false-start a Saturday. 20 minutes after finishing the meal I’d returned to bed, deep in a sugar coma. Does that seem too intense for you? It probably is! But that’s just how we roll out in the Terrace. Respecognize.
