I don't remember much from childhood. I think I simply killed off many of those brain cells in my delinquent adolescence, but I do have one fond memory that I doubt I'll ever forget.
I remember I was maybe 3 or 4, in pre-school, and my dad had been working odd hours all week so we had barely seen each other at home. This particular day, he didn't have to go in. My mom typically took me to school, but this time my dad offered -- except when we make it to the school, he simply keeps driving his 70s Ford Explorer straight past the drop off area. Confused, I ask him where we're going and he smiles while answering "we're playing hookie!" I'd never heard the term, so that didn't help relieve my confusion at all, but it sounded fun so I went with it.
We went and got some cheap McDonalds pancakes, played some minigolf, and saw a movie for the day.
With the story of quality time spent doing goofy shit with a loving father as inspiration, I'm submitting this as my entry to December's mixers club theme. The theme this month (and last?) is telling a story, and this just felt like the right thing to share. This is a simple, fast food pancake & maple syrup. How about some recipe notes?
FW Waffle + CAP VCC + PUR Cookie + FLV Cupcake batter: This is the pancake. FW waffle does a pretty good job as the foundation here, but to myself and most others it's just not cakey enough. That's where Van Cupcake comes in, except VCC is pretty hefty on the palette and has a strong icing kinda vibe to me for some reason. So I kept it low and helped mellow out some of it's heavy vanilla and icing notes with FLV cupcake batter. Add some soft crumble with PUR Cookie, chose this over FA cookie as it's a bit softer of a cookie IMO.
FA Butterscotch + FA Maple Syrup: These sort of team up with the nice maple notes in FW Waffle to provide a great gooey, buttery syrup without being overpoweringly MAPLE.
FA Joy + CAP LMP: Bit of a twist. My dad nowadays likes to cook his pancakes with a bit of lemon juice in the batter for some sweet zing and almost fries them so they have a really nice crispy ring around the edges. So I tried to include those notes in this, still unsure if they're coming through but I feel like I taste some fried stuff and soft lemon in the background somewhere occasionally.
OFFNOTES: As a certain reddit flavor review put it, FW Waffle can taste like you're just licking a hot iron. I tried to keep it at a respectable but low enough range to avoid this but sometimes I still get a hint of it. If you like slightly burnt pancakes from a cast iron pan, it may not bother you though. Hoping that with time a long steep will help the syrup and cakes blossom enough to cover it up.
I based this recipe off "Fugly Butters" @Ebc88 "This is a fried banana pudding" & Bad Drips "Ugly Butter " description: "They don't call it ugly for nothing... Uncle Freddy's famous, fancy fried dough, showered with carnival cultivated cinnamon-sugar, serenaded with a cosby-quality banana pudding."
So, here it goes...
FLV Vanilla Pudding/VT Pudding Base: these 2 combined make up a delicious "Cosby-esque" vanilla puddin'
SA Banana Flambe: gives the fried banana aspect and also adds a touch of cinnamon...
VT Banana Custard: ties together the banana flambe with the pudding while adding some more depth to the banana pudding aspect of the recipe
FLV Rich Cinnamon: turns up the cinnamon flavor.
CAP Funnel Cake: In Bad Drips description they talk of funnel cake and Capella had just dropped their funnel cake around the time that Ugly Butter hit the shelves, so I figure it's in there... so why not?
WF Cinnamon Pastry: no reason other than I just picked this up and wanted to give it a try... plus I figured it would add some more depth to the bakery/dough aspect of the recipe while adding a bit more cinnamon... which it seems to do just fine...
TPA Toasted Marshmallow: to add a little sweetness, mouthfeel, depth and body to the entire recipe.
CAP SS: why not?... It's a tooth rotting belt busting State Fair Treat... it needs to be sweet! 0.5% does just that... add more or don't if you want to...
FA Joy: to bring out the yeasty-ness of the fried dough just a lil more... feel free to omit it... I personally don't care for joy either, but it works well here...
3 day steep and the banana calms down... day 5 the pudding melds together and everything tastes delicious... didn't make it past a week with the first batch, so I don't know if it'll change much at the 2 week mark...
Please rate and review if you mix.
Slight remix of bronuts without fructose, and using JF Biscuit instead of INW. Great as SNV. This really starts to bloom after two to three days. I have no comparison to the original since I don't want to buy FW Yellow Cake, but it makes a great tasty vape on it's own and doesn't cover your coils in burned fructose in an hour.

Having spent quite a while working on my DIY game by mixing other people's recipes, experimenting with percentages, building up my stash and mixing gear and starting to look into profiles, I have finally created something of my own which I feel is worthy of sharing!
I have been enjoying banana milks recently, but noticed a lack of available banoffee profile recipes when a friend asked me to make one for him.
I started off simple, but kept adding more to the profile until I had the complex beast you see before you (of which I went through 30ml in a day after a 7 day steep).
I won't do a huge breakdown of all ingredients and how they add to the mix as it would take way too long, but would love any suggestions for improvement.
Initially mixed with a milk frother in a warm water bath (not for speed steeping but because it reduces the viscosity of the base making blending more effective) in a 180ml batch, the recipe starts to get great at 7 days but is AWESOME after 3 weeks.
Give it a try and let me know what you think! 😊
Hi all! Here is my recipe for Bluebery Chocolate Glazed Muffin!
One of my top ADVs, along with Strawberry Shortcake I will share when I'm satisfied with it.
The recipe is good straight after it's mixed, although with longer steeping some of the harsh notes, especially some of those TFA "sparkly" chemical notes disappear after about a week. A month later this mix is just right and tastes very round with no notes peaking or shadowing the rest of the mix. Although after a month, some of the fresh pastry notes may go a little muted, especially the CAP Graham Cracker cinnamony note I love about this mix gets a little weaker. But the mix was very good two months after mixing, too, so it lasts for quite a while.
I have been working on this recipe for quite a while tweaking percentages and playing with different brands, especially the chocolate was very hard to get right. I finally settled with FA for chocolate, because it induced minimal, almost none of that synthetic gasolineish offnote.
This mix, although it may seem complex, is constituted mainly of minor notes that I wanted to introduce to replicate the taste of freshly baked muffin. Down in the post you will find why I used the flavors I used. The percentages are fairly weak to avoid ending up with a overpowering mix. I also wanted to avoid oversaturating the sense of smell.
FA Chocolate, FA Cocoa and TFA Acetylpyrazine - A friend of mine suggested this combination and I can't get enough of it in my recipes. I have pre-mixed 20mils of 1:1:1 and marked it Belgian Chocolate, because that's exactly what it reminds me of. I don't get pastry notes from AP at all! AP for me is more like a thickening agent for the flavors. Cocoa and Chocolate by themselves are great, too, but feel too thin on the palate - introducing AP sort makes the flavor much thicker, almost sort of a melting chocolate taste and it also eliminates the gasoline chemical offnote I get from it.
FA Cookie - This one was the choice for this mix simply because it is plain and on spot. I tried Cookie Dough flavors, I tried biscuits flavors, but they all had that "doughy" raw feeling to me. Almost as if there was no "baked"-ness in it. FA Cookie is loveable for it's simplicity. It just adds the baked flour and sugar with no other notes and that's what I need to be able to put more flavors in the mix later.
FA Meringue - This one I added just because I add it everywhere where I add FA Cookie. It lifts the bakery notes even more and promotes the freshly baked flavor. It really helps to build a solid bakery foundation in a lot of my recipes.
FA Joy - Joy for me is the yeast in the recipe. The flavor that fills in the fluffy bakery foundation and makes sort of a bridge between the rest of the flavors. Without Joy it tastes more like a cake than a soft bread muffin. When added at 2%, the mix then is more like a donut or a bun.
TFA Butter - This was actually the last one I experimented with in this recipe and took me a while to get it right. I feel like it promotes the chocolate in the mix even more, but in the melty soft way. It also rounded the recipe beautifuly. When I tried it at my usual 2%, the mix was too soft and .. well.. buttery. When I tried less than 1%, some of the other flavors started peaking a little.
TFA Cotton Candy - This one adds the sugar to the recipe. I don't know, without it the mix just wasn't sweet enough. With Sucralose based sweeteners the mix was too sweet, almost unvapable - felt too juicy, too muted.
CAP Graham Cracker - This one was very hard to discover actually. I tried several muffin/dough/cake flavors, but when I added this one, with it's soft cinnamony notes, it hit me. This was it. And I loved it. Just for the curious ones, I tried FA Nonna's Cake - it tasted more like a shortcake. I tried CAP Biscuits - too doughy.
FA Bilberry - FA Bilberry just hits the sweet spot between candy blueberry and slightly floral blueberry. It is subtle, but still fills out the space with that beautiful european mountain goodness. It brings freshness, rounded fruit notes and soft calming aroma of blueberries. I have tried 2% in the beginning and I was alright with it, but I found out over the many trials, that it sort of mutes the bakery notes, so I lowered the percentage to 1%. 1% was on the other side of the thing. The blueberry flavor was there, but was lacking the juicy. It just didn't have the Berry in it. 1.5% was a go then and I'm sticking with this percentage since then.
I really hope you like this recipe as much as I do and also any tips, ideas or improvements are very welcome.
This recipe needs at least 2 week steep because during the first few days there is separation between the Zeppola and the Cupcake but it blends into one solid bakery after around day 5 and then develops the fluffy note around day 10. I don’t find it needs any sweetener but your welcome to sweeten to taste. The tiny bit of almond separates the frosting center from the pastry puff and the small amount of joy plays with the zeppola in airing and fluffing up the cupcake. The milk adds to the lightness of the overall bakery. Enjoy.
A cream-filled pastry that is unlike other cream-filled pastries.
Thank you @richard for the notes.
This isn't really a profiterole. More of a spongey Twinkie.
Described as a 'Brown on the outside, half-baked on the inside pastry'
French vanilla Icecream/Vanilla Whipped cream
This is the inner cream, light and fluffy with a sweet vanilla end.
Yellow cake/Cake Batter Dip
The sponge of the bakery. Yellow cake is delicious and sweet, baked and a little greasy. The Cake batter dip, also a really good concentrate - brings the under-cooked taste to it. Swap out FW Yellow cake with JF Yellow Cake if you want to.
A richness bend to both the cream and the pastry. Can be substituted with another custard that's not too eggy if you aren't able to get your hands on this concentrate. INW would be my guess.
This is to darken the pastry, add a delicious browning to it.
To add the crunch on the outside. Possibly take it closer to a profiterole than a Twinkie.
So this was created because for the last few months I have been seriously struggling to taste my usual adv custards. Well not just my own but pretty much all vanilla profiles I have tried. I have used LA buttered popcorn and some biscuit bases with some success and that has driven me to start playing with some other angles. This time I went to the dough side adding zeppola and a couple other things to help it along. To me it’s “ok” but not amazing although his may be due to my issue. TPA vanilla custard is sort of helping with the sense blindness to Capella Vanilla Custard V1 and most French vanilla profiles.
I hope this is enjoyed and improved upon since I’m certain it can be made better or even just give some inspiration to somebody. And if you do enjoy it please let me know. Alternatively if it gives you inspiration go ahead and link me up since you may also help me once again enjoy my Custard addiction haha.
