1 can minced clams with liquid
Mix enough pancake mix with clams and juice to make a batter. Add water or skim milk if liquid in the can is slight. A beaten egg may be added if desired. Cook as you would for pancakes.
It seems like such an obvious combination, in retrospect! Now, I will soon be leaving for Key West to celebrate my 5th wedding anniversary. (I plan to visit the Hemingway house and have my body rubbed by dozens of polydactyl cats!) If, when I return in one week, I open my comments box and see that a sufficient number of people--say, twenty-five--have expressed a desire to see this dish devoured by my own personal face, I promise to do so and then present you with a photo montage of the event. If double that number of people appear, I promise to pour myself a champagne glass full of raw clam cake batter and drink it while wearing nothing but an Achewood apron and humming the Marseillaise. DO YOUR WORST, my readers--I know there are only five of you!
