13. Martini pancakes!
Well, maybe not, but your chef will give you a good grade if you serve the martini ones before the others...

Sorry, couldn't come up with anything else.

Maybe a raspberry kirsch pancake?
Strawberry cognac with syrup slightly flavored with vanilla?

I have a question for you: How come I can cook anything, including some things that some would call extremely difficult and almost worthy of a french chef, but I can't make a @&*^$#$ pancake without burning it, undercooking it, or otherwise destroying it? My partner has tried repeatedly to teach me, and I just can't damn do it. I will try, and get the pan going, and cook a couple cakes, and all of them come out like crap, so I call her in, she doesn't adjust anything, and turns out beautiful cakers. Am I cursed? Do I give off some weird electromagnetic field? I could hardly even cook them when I was a cook at summer camp, and only could becuase we had a large kichen-sized gas griddle (like, 2'x4'), and it was still a chore. Why, I ask you, why is it just pancakes that I can't do?!
