Banana Pancakes smothered with Butter and Maple Syrup.
There's not yet a great single pancake flavoring available that I've tried to make a great pancake profile. So, I've tried to build one that has everything you expect from that profile.
When you eat pancakes, there's not that much flavor from them except maybe a slight "bready" note. On their own, they're not that appetizing. However, you do get texture and that's what I was going for. The main component is VT Pudding base, which is not a pudding at all. It's more of a "Bready" note. And though you do get a slight bread note, it's lacking in that "golden" pan-fried texture you expect in a pancake. That's where the INW Biscuit comes in to play. At 1% it adds a very slight "brownness" to the bread, like it's been pan-fried. While the VT Pudding Base works pretty well as the bready part of the pancake, it was still lacking the "sweet cakey" part that you expect. So, by adding FW Creamy Sponge Cake, it helps sell that soft, moist cake to the mix.
The Maple Syrup:
If you're not a fan of Maple, this might not be the recipe for you, because it is very Maple forward, ...it has to be. That's what really sells the profile as pancakes. As I mentioned above, while eating pancakes, you really don't get much flavor from the pancakes itself, but rather you get the texture from them. By contrast, you do get a lot of flavor from the maple. So, how to build the maple syrup? I really like FA Maple Syrup, however, it is just seems to be more of a "Maple Flavor" rather that a syrup. So, by adding FW Maple Pecan at only 0.5%, it flips the FA Maple Syrup flavor into a sticky, slightly nutty, syrup.
Bananas are so hard to work with. Most are either too candied or too green. TPA Banana Cream is still a bit candied, but it is also smooth and soft, like if you were to mash some bananas and mix them with a heavy cream. For this profile, it works beautifully, especially since we're using it in combination with a "caramel-like" syrup(bananas and caramels work so well together). It also adds a bit of cream, making the pancake and the butter a bit softer.
You can't have pancakes without butter. VT Butter base is so good! If you don't have it, pick it up. It is the kind of butter flavor you get in something that is baked with butter, rather than just butter that's on top of something. Does that make sense? It's a "Baked-in Butter".
Last but not least; the sweetener. On one version, I tried this with CAP Super Sweet at 0.5%. And while it was nice and sweet, it seemed to make the Maple Syrup just a bit too "sharp". The FW Maple Pecan is very sweet and was enough accentuate the syrup. So, I decided to use FW Sweetener as a less sharp sweetener to make it a bit smoother.
This mix is best when you let it steep for 10 - 14 days.
Is this a perfect Banana Pancake? No. But it has all the notes you might expect in the real thing.
I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. :)

I have been working on this recipe for over a year. I've tried lots of flavors. I still have lots of flavors I haven't tried. Yogi is one of my favorite liquids of all time. All that being said this isn't a clone. I use flavors I think are in Yogi as a starting point, but I wanted to make a granola with a more of a nuttiness quality. Let's start.
The oat note fell into step with RF Oatmeal Cookie. I'm pretty sure this is the oat flavor in Yogi. It is a fantastic oat flavor. I added the WF Oats and Cream to support it.
In another support role is WF Honey Roasted Peanuts, it boosts the oat flavor with that peanut skin taste, while adding some honey coating,
One of the other key flavors is the WF Brown Sugar Cookie. Essential in providing that brown sugar depth with a tad of mouth feel.
FA Honey for the honey note.
FA Maple for the maple note, supported by FW Maple Pecan to try and some additional depth and nuttiness.
To add a richer dark sugar note and some additional nuttiness FW Butter Pecan.
I played with the percentages and this is where I landed. I'm happy with this as an all day vape. The super sweet just to boost everything. This will change as I get around to it. Suggestions welcome. At the end of the day, I get different flavors at different times, which is what I like in my vape. I vape this mostly on a series mech and enjoy the changes as my battery starts to weaken.
A golden, rich, sticky, gooey pudding. It needs a good steep so I advise you mix it and forget it somewhere for a good while.
FW Yellow Cake/FLV Cream/CC Deon Cream = The rich, moist, pudding cake.
FW Burtterscoth/VT Golden Syrup/FW Maple Pecan = the sweet, gooey, stickiness.
VT Red Dates/FA Cherryl = The depth and darkness of the pudding. I like the twist we get from the drop of black cherry, it gives an unexpected accent to the whole profile.
Enjoy, be queer & vape on!

Second breakfast? What do Hobbits eat for second breakfast? I know what I would eat.....maple bacon pecan donuts. I’m hoping Middle Earth has everything they need for these donuts...I’m hoping the bacon comes out with a steep. I didn’t want it taking over the mix, so I kept it low.....might need a bumping up, being Hobbits like bacon. Thank you Jennifer Jarvis for such a fun challenge!
