Cooking with Marijuana: Pancakes, Brownies and More!
Most pot-related cooking starts with the making of “marijuana butter” or “pot butter”. Our digestive systems can’t break down THC directly, so it must be heated in some way. Also, pot is fat-soluble, not water soluble, so you have to incorporate some kind of fat-containing food like milk or butter. The marijuana is incorporated into the butter, and then the butter can be used in any recipe that calls for it. I’ve even seen people put pot butter on toast or muffins, but it has a pretty strong flavor, so it’s best in baked goods.
A common recipe for pot butter:
1 lb. of butter (not margarine!)
1/2 ounce of finely ground marijuana
Melt the butter in a sauce pan until its simmering.
Add the marijuana and let simmer for 30 minutes or so until the butter has turned green from the marijuana.
Pour butter through a strainer to remove all the pieces of marijuana.
Chill until solid
You can also make pot butter with stems if you don’t want to waste any of that precious bud. But beware; it takes a lot of marijuana to collect enough stems to use in the recipe!
Now you can use the pot butter in a number of different recipes.
Common marijuana brownie recipe:
1 cup (225 g) pot butter, melted
3 cups (600 g) white sugar
1 tablespoon (15 mL) vanilla extract
4 eggs (add one more for a cakier result)
1 1/2 cups (180 g) all-purpose flour
1 cup (70 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (this seems to give them a nice crust – omit if you don’t want that)
1 cup (182 g) semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350oF (175o C).
Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish with the paper from the butter.
Melt butter in the microwave or on the stovetop.
Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.
Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
Gradually stir the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until blended.
Toss the chocolate chips in a light dusting of flour, and stir into the mix with a spoon or spatula.
The flour will keep them suspended in the batter and prevent them from all sinking to the bottom!
Pour into prepared pan.
Spread the batter in the pan, slightly mounding on the sides so it will all bake evenly (avoiding the typical mound you get in the middle after baking).
Bake for 35-40 minutes.
Common marijuana pancake recipe:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
3 tablespoons pot butter, melted
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
You can also do the following: melt some butter in a pan and throw in some weed; stir a bit, and then fry an egg (or a pancake or whatever) in it. Eat the egg or whatever you made. Some people claim that sugar based condiments (honey, syrup, marmalade) give the weed a good flavor.
It can take anywhere from 20 mins to 4-5 hours for a “high” to kick in.
