There’s no question that a stack of fresh pancakes is awesome, but what about one giant fluffy pancake? Today we learned mixing a batch of pancake batter in the bowl of a rice cooker and then cooking it, just like you would when making a batch of rice, creates one great big floofy pancake that instantly reminds us of Totoro’s belly.
What’s more, just like regular pancakes, you can add all sorts of things to the batter, such as cocoa powder or pieces of fruit and chocolate, to further enhance your adorably plump tototorcake.
Head over to RocketNews24 for complete instructions as well as some helpful tips and suggestions.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) is always striving to come up with bigger, crazier and all around awesome ways to prepare food. One thing he’s always wanted to do is make gargantuan deviled eggs using ostrich eggs.
It took a bit of effort to track down the eggs, but he succeed and then the fun began. Nick had to boil the eggs for two hours in order to cook them completely. Then he had to use a hammer to crack open their impressively thick shells.
This awesome tiger pancake was recently shared by Imgur user SoNorthTheSunDoesntShine. We don’t know who is actually responsible for creating this edible masterpiece (if you do please let us know), but we’re glad they took the time to document their process with a few additional photos. Now we can each make our own yummy tigercakes too.
Nathan’s son Gryphon thought they should include a Jabba the Hutt pancake with the slug-cakes, since he’s pretty slug-like himself, which we think was a pretty awesome suggestion.
Of course, the perfect ending to any slug-shaped meal is a Banana Slug Sucker for dessert.

Every time we think pancake artist Nathan Shields (previously featured here) has outdone himself, he goes and creates a scrummy new batch of pancakes that are even more awesome than the last. This time he’s made our jaws drop (and stomachs growl) with a mouthwatering batch of tentacular Cephalopod pancakes.
If you’ve been looking for a way to combine your love of Super Mario Bros., burgers and bacon (and why wouldn’t you?), we’d like to suggest whipping up a batch these delightfully delectable Koopa Troopa Bacon Turtle Burgers.
Oakland, CA-based Instructables contributor Canida got the idea to create such geektastic burgers after seeing recipes for turtle-shaped bacon burgers that were sadly bereft of gaming references. Turning the burgers into pesky but yummy Koopa Troopas made them into awesome edibles. All you need is ground beef, bacon, hot dogs, hamburger buns and some food coloring.
German design studio Korefe created the world’s first completely edible cookbook. Designed as a limited edition series for the art and culinary publishing company Gerstenberg Publishing House, The Real Cookbook is an edible instruction manual made of 100% fresh pasta with a classic lasagna recipe embossed on its pages. The Real Cookbook can be opened, read, and then each page used as a layer for making the very same lasagna described on those pasta pages.
We’re sure you’ll agree that one of the best parts about the return of spring is the reappearance of Easter candy on store shelves, not the least of which are those oh-so-precious Cadbury Creme Eggs. Over the years our favourite Dessert Detective Jessie Oleson, aka Cakespy (previously featured here), has created a mouthwatering suite of recipes featuring Cadbury Eggs. And, because she’s all about sharing the sweetness, she always provides thorough instructions.
Here you see Jessie’s Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs, Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict, Cadbury Creme Egg Salad Sandwiches, Cadbury Creme Scotch Eggs, and last but not least, her latest creation: Cadbury Creme Egg in Hole Toast. It’s a thick slice of pound cake with half a Cadbury Egg in the center that’s heated on a griddle and served warm, melty and delicious. (Each link will take you to the corresponding recipe)

Behold the awesomeness that is the Corona-Matic keyboard waffle iron! It was created by New York-based designed Chris Dimino using a 1960s Smith Corona typewriter and a waffle iron from the same period. We love the jams jars and powdered sugar shaker in place of ink dispensers. Unfortunately this stylish marriage of vintage writing machine and kitchen utensil isn’t a functional model.
But never fear, Chris is currently hard at work on designing a functioning keyboard waffle iron. He plans to have a limited edition available for purchase by winter 2014. Keep an eye on his Keyboard Waffle Iron website for production status updates. With any luck we’ll soon be able to make delicious keyboard-shaped waffles to our hearts’ (and stomachs’) content.

Groundhog Day is upon us once again and we’re all eager to learn Punxsutawney Phil’s weather prediction for 2014. Is spring just around the corner or will winter carry on? Last year we posted about an awesome no-bake recipe for Pop-up Groundhog Cookies created by Sandra Denneler over at SheKnows. This year Sandra switched things up by making celebratory edible woodchucks that are savoury instead of sweet.
These adorable Groundhog Hot Dogs were made using white cheese, black olives, cream cheese, a black food colouring pen and hot dogs. They pop their heads out of biscuits and cornbread muffins (for an early spring) and mounds of mashed potatoes (for six more weeks of winter). But we’re guessing they won’t last long enough to cast a shadow.
