I’m on my book tour, and I loved doing the Today Show because it proved that, propelled by the energy of Kathie Lee and Hoda, you can actually make an entire brunch in three minutes, which, of course, is a Crabby Cook’s dream. Okay, yes, they do provide help in the form of three chefs and two prop people (none of whom could be persuaded to come back to L.A. to live with me and solve all my kitchen bitchin’), but still, this was speed cooking at it’s finest.
Here is the recipe for the pumpkin pancakes I made on the Today Show, in case you missed it or the speed-of-light cooking style was too fast for you. Don’t worry if you can’t make both of these (along with the Acon-Bay Olls-Ray and Bloody Marys also concocted during my segment) in three minutes. It just means you will never be on national television and are pretty much a loser.
