We have this thing here every summer, one week of free breakfast = Stamped breakfast. Pancakes, sausages, eggs and coffee for all willing to line up early. Paid for by the city, a corporation or community group. Sounds good but after a week you get a little sick of the smell and taste. why not put our collective efforts to more good and build the ultimate tourist trap.


Why hasn't anyone attempted to build an entire mountain out of pancakes?
Even a 1:16 scale mountain made out of pancakes to go with a tasty train set would be impressive.
Man has built giant dinosaurs, huge nickels and even enormous pierogies for road trip tourists and oddity afficianatos. I want to visit the pancake mountain. There would have to be a pipeline from Quebec to feed the need for maple syrup.

You can tobaggon down the icing sugar sprinkled slope.
You can canoe down the maple syrup river.
Use a giant donut as a floatation device.

Here is a basic pancake recipe for you to begin:

1 cup of flour. 1 egg. 1 cup buttermilk*. 1/4 cup of sugar. 1 teaspoon baking powder. 1 teaspoon baking soda. 1/4 cup vegetable oil. (*substitute 3/4c fat free half and half plus 1/4 cup of water instead of using buttermilk)

Toss all the ingredients together and blend. Cook on a hot griddle. Serve with your favorite toppings. Enjoy. 

Now, multiply the ingredients by tons and we can get started on the mountain. You may need half the flour export of Canada to begin. People could mountain climb the pancake and snack all the way up.
